Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan is prolific on social media and blogging. He updates his social media accounts on Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr and Facebook every single day, sometimes multiple times a day. The legendary superstar not only shares anecdotes, updates about his life and his shoots, his family members and extended family members, but also interacts with fans. Not only that, he celebrates and wishes fans marking every ‘day’ – be it Valentine’s Day, Father’s Day, Mother’s Day or anything else. Today, Sr Bachchan has shared his image wishing all doctors on the occasion of Doctors’ Day!

But his post is rather interesting. On digging deeper, it is definitely saying that on Doctors’ Day, Bachchan wants to thank all the doctors who have helped him through his ailments all his life. But we think there is more. The actor seems to be specifically referring to the near fatal accident on the sets of his movie Coolie in the 1970s, when he was saved by the doctors and the prayers of the masses for their superstar.

Read the heartfelt message shared by our beloved Amitabh Bachchan on the occasion of Doctors Day on July 1. He said on Twitter, “#WorldDoctorsDay .. July 1, today .. and no better person than me to acknowledge and honour it ..!!”

Here’s wishing all the doctors a happy Doctors’ Day and thanks for saving our superstar, and also being there for us always! (Photo courtesy of Amitabh Bachchan.)
