Earlier last week, Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan was urged by his doctors to take a break from work. On November 1, 2019, doctors declared that his health will be severely affected to the extent that he might face a health lapse.
Bachchan was scheduled to inaugurate the 25th Kolkata International Film Festival, but due to his discomforts led him to cancel his schedule; said the West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee said on Friday.
"Amitabhji comes here every time. But he could not turn up. Since last night he is unwell. So doctors have restricted his movements. He is suffering a lot since last night," Banerjee said at the inauguration programme.
Bollywood star Shah Rukh opened the festival in Big B's absence.
The West Bengal CM said she got a message from Bachchan early on Friday morning informing her about his indisposition.
He contacted me, Jaya ji (Jaya Bachchan) also... We pray for his long life and good health. Today though he could not come, I believe Amitji's mind is with this festival. We cannot think of this film festival without him.- West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee
His ill health has spread concern amongst his fans and while there is no word about his work and the pending projects; the only question that arises is will the actor manage to complete his shoots?
The megastar was last seen in Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy in a cameo.
Amitabh Bachchan was recently conferred with the Dadasaheb Phalke Award as well and many of the stars also congratulated him on this great achievement.
