The 73-year-old thespian on his official blog shared an update about his health to his well-wishers, who he fondly calls his 'extended family' or 'Ef'. 'I am in recovery .. though with slow process ! Those that present themselves on this family of Ef, throw intermittent concern on my condition. To them I say, I am well and do not have grave conditions in your mind," Big B wrote on Sunday.

The 'Piku' star also assured his fans that these 'conditions occur often, and shall heal in due course'!

The cine icon shared that with the help of a 'strong pain killer' he could travel to Chennai 'to pay respect to a late friend's death anniversary'.

He added, 'The ceremony was quiet, elegant, filled with the softness of remembrance and poignancy...I spoke... it was appreciated'.
