Indian screen legend Amitabh Bachchan was rushed to hospital earlier today (28NOV05) suffering from stomach pain.

The 63-year-old actor was admitted to Escorts Hospital, New Delhi, to undergo a series of tests but doctors are confident his condition is not serious.

Bachchan, allegedly the highest paid actor in Bollywood, was joined by son ABHISHEK - also a national movie star - and daughter SHWETA NANDA.

The celebrity patient has appeared in more than 150 Hindi-language films, including BLACK, BUNTY AUR (AND) BABLI and SARKAR (BOSS) this year (05) alone.
