Mumbai: Amitabh Bachchan, who is recuperating in the SevenHills hospital here, is suffering hunger pangs which are seen as a positive sign by doctors attending upon the megastar.
"Hunger pangs swell for the first time... docs say its good sign... hope so," Big B posted on his Twitter page.
The 69-year-old was admitted to hospital Feb 11 and underwent two abdominal surgeries, post which he complained of acute pain. His stay in the hospital was thus extended, and now he is under observation.
On Feb 17, Big B had informed through his blog that his intake had improved.
"My intake has been improved upon - from three sips of water per day to four sips!! That`s like a couple of teaspoons full extra," he had posted on his blog bigb.bigadda.com.
But from his latest Twitter post, his condition seems to be much better.
The actor also tried to walk around Saturday.
