The 78-year-old Bollywood megastar, Amitabh Bachchan, aka Big B shocked his fans after revealing late Saturday night that he has a "medical condition" and needs to undergo surgery.
Keeping his medical condition under wraps, Big B took to his personal blog, posting a cryptic message saying, "Medical condition .. surgery .. can't write".
Tens of thousands of his fans have since taken to social media wishing the actor a speedy recovery.
