Amitabh Bachchan unwell in Jodhpur, doctors rush from Mumbai

Mumbai : Amitabh Bachchan reportedly fell ill during the shooting of his upcoming film ‘Thugs of Hindostan’, in Jodhpur. A team of doctors was rushed from Mumbai in a chartered plane to attend the actor in Jodhpur.

The veteran actor was in Jodhpur to wrap-up the shooting for his role in YRF’s ambitious project co-starring Aamir Khan, Katrina Kaif, and Fatima Sana Sheikh.

Earlier reports suggested that the veteran actor would be flown back to Mumbai, but later it was confirmed that a team of doctors have been rushed to Jodhpur to check on Bachchan.

As per the local media reports, Bachchan is said to be in a stable condition following the medical check-up and the shooting is likely to resume soon.

Bachchan himself wrote on his blog ‘Bachchan Bol’ – “I am getting my team of Doctors in tomorrow morning to fiddle around with my body and set me up again .. i will rest and keep informed in process…”

Directed by Dhoom 3 director Vijay Krishna Acharya, Thugs of Hindostan is an adaptation of the 1839 novel Confessions of a Thug. Amitabh completed the first leg of the shoot for the film in Thailand and described it as one of toughest shoots of his career. Strangely though, the so-called harsh schedule just completed in the wilds and hills and chills of mountainous Thailand… of disciplined, gentle and smiling Thai has not had any after effects of discomfort or malaise. It’s been tough, the shoot for ‘Thugs of Hindostan’, but in a funny way very energising,” Amitabh had written on his blog after completing the shoot. (Inputs from agencies)
