Mumbai: Veteran actor Pran is recovering well after undergoing a surgical procedure says megastar Amitabh Bachchan.

"Pran, colleague, senior and one of the finest gentlemen of this beautiful fraternity, lies in ICU, and I visit him...prayers for him for his speedy recovery. I speak to him, masked for purposes of infection riddance, and he sees but does not recognise. He has a tracheotomy done, so cannot speak. He was in hospital a few days back and I had visited him...he seemed perfectly all right...but he has had a relapse and I wish him well...," Amitabh wrote on his blog srbachchan.tumblr.com.

Pran's son Sunil, he said his father is fine, but refused to divulge further details. "He is in hospital now and he is doing fine now. He was hospitalised a while back," Pran's son Sunil said to a news agency.

Pran, 92, is known for his negative roles in movies like "Brahmachari", but later went on to expand his repertoire with films like "Zanjeer", "Karz" and "Don". He was admitted to the hospital last month too, but was later discharged.
