After getting treated by his team of doctors, Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan has assured his fans and well-wishers that he is doing well. Yesterday, doctors rushed to Jodhpur from Mumbai to take care of the 75-year-old actor, who is in the city for the shooting of Thugs of Hindostan. In a poetic post in Hindi, Bachchan said that he was not feeling well and had to call his doctors for the treatment, but now he is doing fine.
His wife Jaya Bachchan also told news agency IANS that Big B is fine. “He has pain in the back and neck. The costumes are very heavy, so, there's some pain. Otherwise, he is fine,” she had said.
Earlier, Amitabh, wrote in his blog, “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.”
Photographer Viral Bhayani posted pictures of Amitabh and wrote that the actor had resumed shooting on Tuesday evening. “Nothing can stop this man. Fear is our weakness but not in his dictionary. Today evening #amitabhbachan started shooting again for #thugsofhindostan. That’s what professionals do. Today snapped amidst tight security at Mehrangarh Fort at Jodhpur,” he wrote.
