The Shahenshah, Amitabh Bachchan is a living example of how dreams turn into reality. The tall-dark man proved his mettle and made his enduring mark in the world of cinema.
Amit Ji made his acting debut in 1969 with Saat Hindustani, recently celebrated 50 beautiful years in the film industry. It has truly been an outstanding journey for the superstar as he continues to cast his magic and win the audiences with his impeccable performances and charismatic personality.
However, it looks like it will soon be an end to his era, as he pens down his thoughts on his blog while travelling to Manali by car, to join the shooting of Brahmastra, and states that he must retire now.
Impressed by the simplicity of the small town, Bachchan writes, “Tranquil .. essence of the freshness .. the winter feel, the purity hopefully of the air .. and a rest after 5 am to now .. there is great humility and joy of felicitations en route .. the simplicity of the smaller town reigns supreme .. as does the generous hospitality .. we can never match their honesty and simplicity.”
He also says that his body is sending him signals to retire and writes, “another new environ and another readjustment to room and its accoutrements”, the actor added, “I must retire .. the head is thinking something else and the fingers another .. its a message.”
Bachchan has entertained us for the past 50 years and has three big projects in his pipeline. The films awaiting release in the coming year include Gulabo Sitabo co-starring Ayushmann Khurrana, Brahmastra alongside Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt, and Chehre with Emraan Hashmi.
Meanwhile, a report in Mumbai Mirror quoted a source as saying, “Amitji is in Manali, for the next few days before he moves to another shoot in a foreign location in early December. The film’s antagonists, Mouni Roy and Saurav Gurjar, too, will be a part of this schedule, that requires some amount of prep before the camera rolls.”
Directed by Ayan Mukerjee, Brahmastra releases in May 2020.
