This time around, the Bachchan family is also adamant about his time off.
Long-standing health issues have re-surfaced in mega-star Amitabh Bachchan’s life, following which he has been medically advised to take a long break from acting.
According to sources in the know, Big B will be taking time off right after the completion and release of Nagraj Manjule’s football film Jhund in December. “The other projects that Amit ji has signed will have to wait,” informs a source. “Right now, it is imperative that he take a long-ish break. He is physically exhausted; his body needs rest, repair, and healing,” continues the source.
This time around, the Bachchan family is also adamant about his time off. “Wife Jaya, daughter Shweta and son Abhishek have made it very clear to Bachchan sahab that this time he must take the medical advice seriously. He has been seriously advised to take time off on several occasions in recent years. Each time, he has disregarded the warning and continued to work. Not this time. The family will make sure he takes time off for rest,” says a family friend.
