MUMBAI: Amitabh Bachchan, who was discharged from hospital on Friday night, took to his blog to express displeasure about the media's rampantly speculative reporting over his ailment these past few days. He said that medical conditions were the confidential right of an individual, and hence should not be commercialised.

Big B's blog entry was in reaction to what he said was unsubstantiated reporting about his health condition, ever since he was admitted to Mumbai's Nanavati hospital earlier this week.

"Do NOT break the CODE of professional documentation.. ailments and medical conditions are a confidential individual right..its exploitation, and its attempted commerce are a social illegality..respect and give required understanding to this..all is not in the world of sale.

"This world this universe of today the most recorded and vision documented era shall ever be remembered by the cataloging of all that transpires within and without .. the act is lauded and given applause..but..

" the presence of such a vast record among the billions..about which shall be filed for posterity as the that of shall never be known, for there shall be a billion versions opinions and thoughts for debate..

"..the false and the fake once exposed to this vast universe remains the ultimate truth .. try as you may as much as you may, that is what lingers and postulates itself as the finest record..a pity really, for eventually, the compromise on this factor is ever debatable..and often not in favour of them that postulate.."

In his blog post, the megastar also expressed his gratitude to fans for their love and prayers. He wrote: "Prayers concern and the love of them that stand by you, are elements of immense construct.. they believe so you believe..they present folded appeal, and the reciprocation be of equal strength.. they are real.. they are constant.. they are the energy often questioned."

"My love.. and my gratitude for all.. for all that consider care, that consider concern and consider prayer for me.."

On the work front, the actor is expected to resume shooting for the popular quiz show "Kaun Banega Crorepati" (KBC) on Tuesday.

In Bollywood, he has Shoojit Sircar's 'Gulabo Sitabo', Nagraj Manjule's 'Jhund', Rumi Jaffery's 'Chehre' and Ayan Mukerji's 'Brahmastra' coming up.

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.
