United States of America might be Bollywood's favourite destination for surgeries but Amitabh Bachchan thinks otherwise.

'Many suggestions coming in to have gone to USA for surgery .. NO ! The Indian medical fraternity is competent to deal with situations. Indian doctors in no way less talented than any other in the world .. Yes there are certain departments where the West is superior...  but I have chosen to put my trust in the doctors and medical fraternity of my country .. and am happy with the decision !!' he updated.

Meanwhile, he updated about his health. 'Some reports that were at alarming levels have shown improvement .. your prayers are working, thank you .. And to have the company of family - Shweta has come back in a day - is the most reassuring factor ..' he added.
