Amitabh Bachchan misses award show due to ill health
Amitabh Bachchan says he is troubled with a mild body ailment which has laid him low. The megastar added that he has been dealing with it for many days now, and hopes to be back on his feet soon.
The cine icon shared through his official blog early on Sunday his health update with his fans and admirers, who he fondly calls his 'extended family'.
"It is not alarming... but it is... and it puts me horizontal, with minimum movement... and grief... grief for regretting my appearance (sic) at the Zee Awards where I was to present the lifetime award to Veeru Devgn, the master action director, producer and father to our Ajay Devgn," Big B shared.
The 73-year-old added: "When the body is troubled, so is the mind, so is the soul and so the desire to write to communicate with the loved ones, the Ef... It has been so for many days now and I do feel a disconnect each day, but it shall repair soon I hope and we shall be back to winning ways as they say."
The actor, who has been part of the film industry for over four decades, went on to appreciate the hard work and dedication of Veeru Devgn, calling him a 'care concerned director of stunts'.
The 'Piku' star said: "A remarkable life story for Veeru ji... from being another stuntman to where he ended and the numerous highlights that his career exhibited..."
"Veeru-ji matured soon enough from this scenario to an action director then he became a producer and eventually directed a film which I worked in too... but my association with him was through those millions of film moments, which I worked with him in all and most of my action sequences."
Amitabh also shared that "He was a care concerned director of stunts... he never put his artists in any kind of trouble or strain and was very good in its execution."
On the professional front, after an action thriller film 'Wazir', Amitabh is prepping up for Ribhu Dasgupta's 'Te3N'.
