Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who underwent an abdominal surgery last week, was Wednesday shifted out of the Lilavati Hospital's intensive care unit to a special suite set up for him.

The 63-year-old actor, who was admitted to the hospital here Nov 28 after he complained of acute stomachache, underwent a major surgery for diverticulitis of the small intestine Nov 30.

"Mr Bachchan has been shifted to a special suite set up exclusively for him and is recuperating well as of now," a hospital official said.

According to sources, the actor's health is improving but he will remain in the hospital for another week before going home.

Doctors attending on him had Tuesday decided to continue his liquid diet, though intravenous fluids were discontinued, except for antibiotics and vitamin supplements.

See what really ails Amitabh!

It's now a week since Amitabh Bachchan was admitted into the Leelavati hospital in Mumbai with an acute pain in the abdomen.

Now out of the ICU he's well out of danger and on the way to full recovery. A close friend of the Bachchans who wishes to remain anonymous says, "It's a very tough time for the Bachchans. It isn't so much the illness…the worst is definitely over and expected to be home in the next ten days…It's the pressure of the media and the never-ending influx of guests.. That's hard to handle…"

"To Abhishek, Shweta and Jaya's credit they're handling the crisis exceptionally well. Not once do they allow their inner trauma to boil over. The arrangement at Leelavati is impeccable. Right from the outside compound where the press is stationed to the foyer where guests are received…the place is as well-appointed and organized as a 5-star hotel… One of the three Bachchans is unfailingly around to receive the guest. And they're oh so gracious."

What exactly ails Mr Bachchan? "It's a condition known as divurticulitis. Author Faroukh Dhondy also suffered the same ailment. It means Mr Bachchan has to stay completely away from spicy , masala food. Any of these things can aggravate his condition. Otherwise he's fine."

As for the lack of information on AB's condition given out to the press… "It's basically Abhishek's decision. He doesn't want anyone to talk about his father's condition until full recovery. If in doing so he's considered a villain he doesn't mind. Right now Mr Bachchan's full recuperation is all that counts to the family…and rightly so."
