Bollywood mega star Amitabh Bachchan is not well and informs fans about his health in a tweet. The actor wrote that doctors are “fiddling around with his body” to “set him up again”.
“I am getting my team of Doctors in tomorrow morning to fiddle around with my body and set me up again… I will rest and keep informed in process,” Mr. Bachchan, who is in the city to shoot for Thugs of Hindostan wrote in his blog.
His wife and yesteryear actor Jaya Bachchan also said he had pain in his neck and back due to the heavy costumes of the film.
Reportedly, a team of doctors was flown from Mumbai to Jodhapur to treat his shoulder pain on Tuesday. Now according to news on social media, the actor is feeling fine and is likely to be back on work soon.
Officials at Ajit Bhawan Palace, the hotel where Amitabh is staying, have confirmed that his health collapsed for working late at night.
The 75-year-old actor wrote on his blog, “Ya .. so .. its 5 am .. the morning after the night that began yesterday .. for work .. some people need to work for a living .. and work hard .. Its been rough .. but when ever did any be achieved without it .. there is struggle and disappointment and pain and sweat and tears .. then the expectation of all working out .. sometimes it does, most of the times not .. that not is the catalyst .. when they say not, it is the right impetus to say and deliver that it has been successful and achieved.”
The crew of Thugs of Hindostan was scheduled to leave Jodhpur Tuesday evening around 5pm but hotel sources confirmed that the departure has been rescheduled.
Thugs of Hindostan is an adaptation of the 1839 novel Confessions of a Thug and also features Aamir Khan, Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Shaikh. It is being directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya of Dhoom fame.
Amitabh also has another film in his kitty — 102 Not Out, which also stars veteran star Rishi Kapoor. The actors will be starring together after two decades.
