Amitabh Bachchan: Home & Raring to Get Back To Work



Amitabh Bachchan

 Eye surgery cannot deter the  Bachchan hurricane. Barely hours after surgery and his return home, the unstoppable mega-star  is  anxious to get back home. He is the only major star who has  as many as  five project on hand in various stages  of completion.  

There is  the now-complete  and ready-for-release suspense thriller  Chehre, to be followed  by the sports epic  Jhund and  the mega  sci-fi thriller  Brahmastra where he  shares  screen space  for  the  first time  with  his favourite contemporary actor Ranbir Kapoor. While Chehre  needs  Mr Bachchan’s time for  promotion, Jhund is  in post-production and  would still  require shooting dates from the actor. Brahmastra is a long way from being completed.

In addition  Mr Bachchan has a guest  appearance  in Queen, the Kannada remake  of Vikas  Bahl’s Queen.

Says a  close friend  of the family,  “Amitji  just refuses to slow down. Health cannot stop him. His family keeps  telling him to take it easy. But he  won’t listen.”

 In  an  earlier  interview when  I had asked  the mega-star to slow  down  his response  was :  “It’s all about time management.And please don’t ask me to slow down. I am not here to conquer peaks or design a formula for success. I am here to do a job. I need to work, I like to work and I am fortunate that there are some that consider me for work. In time nature shall diminish me and my body. But until it does so, I wish to continue !! You got a problem with that ?”
