Amitabh Bachchan took some time off to focus on his health, and spent the day in bed watching football.
MUMBAI: Amitabh Bachchan, who turned 77 last month, took to his blog to post a picture of him resting, and recovering, on a bed at home, saying the "cracks and breaks" he's facing need to heal before he starts shooting.

In a blog posted, written almost at midnight on Saturday, the 'Paa' star mentioned the injuries he endured through his career, saying, "the left overs of incidents from the times of DON and the cracks and breaks now playing up .. and placing themselves in important avenues which restrict movement (sic)."

Talking about passing time as he recovered, he added that he couldn't wait to resume working.

"And reminiscing the work front by the day after when there shall be the chair and the computer ji and the audience (a reference to 'Kaun Banega Crorepati').

In the picture posted on blog, the Big B can be seen watching the Premier League.


He also expressed regret on having missed the inaugural ceremony of 25th Kolkata International Film Festival, which he has been attending for the past six years.

The actor wrote that while he's sad he won't be physically present, he's trying to send across a video to the festival.

"Sad and in regret to not be able to travel for KIFF to Kolkata....an event that has invited me for years...I think now 7 years....and the speech...glorifying cinema and the research by educated assists from dear friends...gone..but there is communication established whether I could read it on video and send to them to be played at the closing," he added.

On November 7, the megastar completed 50 years in the Hindi film industry, as it was on that day in 1969, that he made his debut in K A Abbas’s, ‘Saat Hindustani’.

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.
