Amitabh Bachchan Mumbai, July 20 (IANS) Megastar Amitabh Bachchan, along with wife Jaya, paid a visit to actor-friend Shatrughan Sinha, who is recovering after undergoing a bypass surgery.

“Shatrughan Sinha in hospital with a bypass heart surgery. Jaya and I immediately go and visit him,” Amitabh wrote on his blog srbachchan.tumblr.com, after visiting the Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital Thursday.

“He has done well and so have the doctors and he remains in his room, out of the ICU, chatting dime a dozen with his humour intact! So reassuring,” added the 69-year-old, who has worked with the “Khamosh” star in films like “Bombay to Goa”, “Kaala Patthar” and “Naseeb”.

Big B was glad to see his actor-politician friend on the road to quick recovery.

“Watching colleagues in hospital beds, suffering and in medical condition, is disturbing. But Shatrughan is in good spirits, as he always is, talking non-stop and showing no signs of the trauma he has been through. Thank god,” he posted.

Imran’s realistic approach

He plays a loafer in one movie and a Haryanvi rural boy in another. Actor Imran Khan is pushing his limits to give an authentic touch to characters in his forthcoming films.

The 29-year-old will be seen in the role of a loafer in Milan Luthria’s next “Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai 2″, and to add a realistic touch to it, Imran is interacting with people from different areas, said a source.

The actor decided to learn Haryanvi language for a month, before he started to shoot for Vishal Bharadwaj’s “Matru Ki Bijli Ka Mandola”, in which he essays a Haryana-based boy opposite actress Anushka Sharma.

Besides these two projects, he will be seen in Tigmanshu Dulia’s “Milan Talkies”. Imran has previously sported a clean shaven look in movies like “Jaane Tu… Ya Jaane Na”, “I Hate Love Stories,” and “Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu”, but has recently been flaunting a heavily bearded look.
