|Amitabh Bachchan has been rushing from one venue to another -- radio stations, press conferences, TV channels, et al -- so much to promote his upcoming film Bbuddah - Hoga Terra Baap that it’s taking a toll on his health.
“There has been a setback in the health I think .. a congestion arises in the chest and the throat has become hoarse and painful at the glands … so back to home doctor and on to antibiotics to control it,” Amitabh Bachchan wrote on his blog.
The superstar surmised that the congestion could be because he has been speaking inordinately more than usual.
“… it could also be from the fact that I normally speak as much as I did in the past few days, in a year. My entire quota for the year ending 2011 would still be less than what I have done in the last 2 days. That is a lot of talking! And when I do get back home its like being drugged … just dozing off even while standing and lack of complete energy. This is not good, once a chest condition begins with me it takes forever to heal and become normal. So its best given the treatment before it gets out of hand…” Big B wrote.
The medication, it appears, seems to be working and Amitabh Bachchan is doing much better now.
“I see as usual the fraternity anxious and worried about my condition, but there really is nothing in it. I am good and in fine fettle. Its all the others that tire and fall ill - my staff, security, make up etc. Virus in the air is taking its toll on all. But all is good with me, do not worry!!” Big B wrote in the latest post.
Bbuddah - Hoga Terra Baap releases on July 1.
