Amitabh Bachchan has fallen ill while shooting for Vijay Krishna Acharya's upcoming film Thugs of Hindostan in Jodhpur. The actor himself confirmed the same through a blog post on Monday morning. Though Big B did not reveal what has happened to him, he did mention that a team of doctors will visit him to take care of his health. “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,” he wrote. As of now, the actor is said to be stable.
The megastar has been amidst strenuous schedules of Thugs Of Hindostan which reportedly features the actor in several action sequences. Thugs Of Hindostan, which also features Aamir Khan, Fatima Sana Shaikh and Katrina Kaif in pivotal roles, will release in Diwali this year.
Ever since the news broke out, his fans have been pouring wishes for a speedy recovery on Twitter.
75-year-old Bachchan, an active user on Twitter, also tweeted this morning.
On a related note, last month, Big B was admitted to Lilavati Hospital and Research Centre in Mumbai after he complained of pain in his lower back. Several reports also suggested that he was discharged soon after his treatment. However, it was clear later that Big B merely visited Lilavati Hospital for a routine check-up.
Apart from Thugs Of Hindostan, Big B will be next seen in 102 Not Out which also stars Rishi Kapoor. The movie is scheduled to release in May.
Get well soon, Shahenshah!
