New Delhi: Actor Amitabh Bachchan arrived at the Mumbai's Lilavati Hospital on Friday for a routine checkup.

The actor had been complaining about shoulder and spine pain for some time and therefore went for a routine checkup to the hospital. As per reports, he had arrived at the hospital at around 6:30 pm today and a team of doctors is evaluating his health.

However, there has been no update about the condition of his health by the hospital authorities so far.

Early today, the teaser of his film '102 Not Out' with co-star Rishi Kapoor was released. In the film, he will be seen with Rishi Kapoor after a span of 27 years.  The movie is based on a Gujarati play by the same name and is touted as ‘the most unusual father and son love story’.

The actor had shared the first teaser of the film on his Twitter account. 

Big B had returned early in the morning after an all-night-shoot for 'Thugs of Hindustan' and shared it with his fans by posting a tweet, "T 2609 - Just back from an all night shoot for TOH .. now to bed and slumber .. love." 

Bachchan, who has a history of stomach ailments, was operated in February 2012 at the Seven Hills hospital. He had complained of acute abdominal pain then and there were even chances of him undergoing a second operation, which fortunately did not take place.
