Mumbai: Megastar Amitabh Bachchan was on Thursday discharged from hospital after a 12-day stay post his abdominal surgery.

"The actor is doing much better now following which he has been discharged," a hospital source said.

Last night, Big B had tweeted, "Freedom !!! free from central line, free from all kites, free to sleep without precaution... Now await to be free from hospital !!."

Bachchan, who has a history of stomach ailments, was operated on February 11 at the Seven Hills hospital.

He had complained of acute abdominal pain and there were chances of him undergoing a second operation. But later it was decided by the doctors that another surgery was not required as the 69-year-old actor was getting better.
