Actor Amitabh Bachchan on Sunday said he received the second and final dose of the novel coronavirus vaccine.
The 78-year-old, who took his first jab last month, took to Instagram to give his fans and followers a follow-up update.
‘Second One Is Also Done’
“Dusara bhi ho gaya! (The second is one also done) Covid one, not the Cricket one ! Sorry sorry, that was a really bad one..” Amitabh captioned a picture of him receiving the shot.
In April, the veteran actor said all eligible members of his family, except actor’s son Abhishek Bachchan, received the first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine.
Abhishek had been shooting for his upcoming comedy performance in Dasvi.

On March 1, the government launched a nationwide campaign to vaccinate all people over the age of 60 and those between the ages of 45 and 59 on disease mortality.
