He was reportedly better after undergoing almost a five-hour operation on Saturday for an abdominal ailment, a hospital official said.

Bachchan, 69, has a history of abdominal problems - the legacy of an accident suffered while filming 'Coolie' three decades ago.

The avid blogger took to twitter after proper rest and thanked his fans for the constant support and prayers.

"Took almost 5 hrs on the OT, but could feel the concern and wishes of the TwFmXt every minute .. you all are incredible .. thank you," he tweeted.

"Took long because 2 surgeries had to be done on either side..yes there is pain, but nothing good in life ever achieved without it !" he continued.

Senior Bachchan was admitted to hospital on Saturday morning after complaining of abdominal pain earlier in the week, sparking worries about his health among thousands of his adoring fans.

It is reported that Amitabh Bachchan was shooting for Deepak Sawant's Bhojpuri film 'Gangadevi', when he complained of stomach pain.

'Big B,' as he is popularly known among his fans, has suffered abdominal problems since he ruptured his spleen during a fight scene on the set of the 1982 film 'Coolie', after which he was critically ill for months.

Post the successful surgery, Big B thanked all his fans and well-wishers. "Thank you for your prayers. Your love and wishes never fail...indebted for life, one that I shall never be able to pay back."
