Mumbai, Oct 19 (IANS) Bollywood actor Aamir Khan who has been missing from cyber space for over two months, has posted on his blog his strange encounter with a colony of ants that bit him en mass while he was sleeping.
"After a long day at work, I went to bed at around 3 a.m. A couple of hours later, deep in sleep I had this vague feeling of being bitten on my ear. Gradually I was being bitten on my stomach, legs, neck. I was so sleepy that I just kept cursing, scratching, turning and tossing. Finally it got really unbearable, and I kind of woke up to see my bed filled with ants," Aamir wrote on his blog www.aamirkhan.com Friday.
"There were hundreds of them! Crawling all over and giving me hell. I had to jump under the shower and then went and crashed on my couch," he added.
Considering that ants swarm around anything that has some sugar level as they feed on it, the actor joked: "I guess they found something really sweet on that bed, and since K (wife Kiran) was out on a night shoot I am assuming it was me."
Aamir also apologised for his uninformed absence from writing regularly on his blog.
"I suppose you all want to know why I have been away so long. Well I'm not sure I can explain. I guess I needed to be by myself for a while. Still, I should have expressed that. My apologies," the actor wrote.
