Says a source, "Amitabh has been reporting on the sets of the show despite the fever. On Monday, he shot for two episodes even though he had fever, as he did not want to disturb anyone’s schedule. However, he was tired and felt weak on Tuesday, so the shoot was called off."

It is being said that the actor has been asked to take it easy for the next few days. "He has been advised to take some rest and he's likely to resume shooting on September 15. He is apparently suffering from viral fever and is expected to recover soon."

Interestingly, two days ago, Amitabh Bachchan had posted on a social networking site that he is unwell and that he had to cancel a shoot. On Tuesday evening, Big B wrote, "Yes, went to work! Back for quite a while... and the fever has returned! Damn!" (sic)

The channel’s spokesperson was not available for comment.
