Amitabh Bachchan, who ushered in his 70th birthday a day early with a magnificent party, spent his birthday on October 11 taking care of his social engagements.

After greeting the scores of fans assembled outside his home, Amitabh Bachchan headed to the Seven Hills hospital in Andheri, a western Mumbai suburb, to inaugurate a mobile diabetes van named after him. The van is dedicated to treating diabetic patients free of cost in the city. Incidentally, this is the same hospital where his daughter-in-law Aishwarya Rai gave birth to her baby girl.

The legendary actor was welcomed with a huge garland bearing his name.
