Amitabh Bachchan visited veteran actor Pran, who has been admitted to hospital due to respiratory problems.
Bachchan paid an hour-long visit on November 19 at the Lilavati Hospital, Bandra, in suburban Mumbai, and said the 92-year-old
actor is doing fine.
"Paid a visit to Pran Saheb in hospital... he is fine... spent an hour with him joking and talking of times past and present," Bachchan posted on Twitter.
Pran, who is one of the most popular villains of Bollywood and has acted in around 350 films, had come for a check-up and was admitted for a respiratory problem.
Bachchan, who has shared screen space with the Padma Bhushan awardee in 14 films including Zanjeer, Amar Akbar
Anthony and Don, has also urged the media not to fuel any rumours regarding the actor's health.
"All those making speculative remarks on Pran Saheb being critical... Get your facts right before going public... Most irresponsible," he added.
