NEW DELHI: Megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who completes 50 years in Hindi cinema and continues to be one of the busiest actors in Bollywood, on Thursday shared a health update with his fans, saying doctors have advised him to cut back on work. Sharing several of his pictures alongside a photograph of a meeting with doctors at his home, Jalsa, Bachchan said he would be back to the grind despite the warning by "the stethoscope-dressed messengers from heaven".

"The tunnel at the NSSH... indeed several tunnels and some more probing with the meter in hand that sonographs.. a few on the side injectables .. at various locations on this mine field of a body.. some venus strips punctured and the fluids dripped in.. a few hard core instructions to follow.. and back to the grind, despite the stethoscope dressed messengers from heaven giving strong warnings of work cut off.. or else (sic)," Bachchan wrote on his official blog.


Bachchan's debut film "Saat Hindustaani" released on November 7, 1969.

Though the movie was not a hit and the a dozen odd films that followed also bombed, they heralded the era of a superstar, whose stardom has not dimmed on the marquee in the five decades.

The 77-year-old star was announced as the recipient of the Dadasaheb Phalke award, Indian cinema's highest honour for an artiste, in October this year.

Bachchan has a full slate ahead with "Jhund", "Chehre", "Gulabo Sitabo" and "Brahmastra" besides his hosting duties on "Kaun Banega Crorepati".

King Of All Trades

9 Oct, 2019
A name that needs no introduction, a voice that is recognised by millions, and a presence that makes even the most established actors nervous. Amitabh Bachchan is in every sense one of the biggest superstars the country has seen. Having spent 50 years in the industry, and given fans masterpieces like 'Zanjeer', ‘Deewar’, ‘Sholay’, ‘Black’, and ‘Paa’ among several others, the Big B - as he commonly known - is a force to be reckoned with, even as he turns 77. Showing no signs of slowing down, the Padma Vibhushan-awardee’s upcoming films include Ayan Mukerji’s ‘Brahmastra’, Shoojit Sircar’s ‘Gulabo Sitabo’ and Rumi Jaffery’s ‘Chehre’. While continuing to enthrall audiences every time he comes on screen, the superstar, who was 'selected unanimously' for Dadasaheb Phalke award this year, also dabbled in several other trades - sometimes succeeding, at other times not so much - through the course of his professional journey. Here’s a look at Bachchan Sr. beyond films.
