Bollywood movie legend Amitabh Bachchan is back at work after taking four months out to recover from surgery. The 63-year-old appeared on the set of Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna (NEVER SAY GOODBYE) in Mumbai earlier today (20MAR06) after recuperating from an operation to treat diverticular disease - a condition caused by inflammation of the colon. The actor's make-up man DEEPAK SAWANT said, "He was very excited this morning to come back to the set." Bachchan, who has starred in more than 100 films, will soon begin shooting for GANGA (RIVER GANGES) and BABUL, in which he plays the lead role. He was hospitalised last November (05) after complaining of abdominal pain.

Other film projects include a part in acclaimed director Karan Johar's forthcoming Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna, which charts the budding romance between two married people.
