March 02 : After the eye surgery, the megastar Amitabh Bachchan is reportedly anxious to get back home and start work. But unfortunately, he has to go through surgery in another eye. The veteran actor took to his blog and expressed his helplessness as he has nothing to do to pass the day.
“The day passes with nothing to do...cannot read cannot write...cannot see...so just sitting there in oblivion...eyes shut most of the time and attempted listening to music, which is not a very convincing pastime... unless of course it is being created...but that too is 'out of bounds' for the moment,” Big B wrote.
Senior Bachchan thanked his fans and followers for showing concern about his health and sending him their best wishes for his medical condition. Big B further penned, “Eye surgeries at this age are delicate and need precision handling. The best is being done and one hopes all shall be well. The sight and the recovery is slow and difficult so if there are typing errors they are to be excused. Right now I feel like Gary Sobers, the West Indian great and his narration of a cricket story which apparently he went through. The details of which shall be given in time. It's a story heard whether or not it is authentic is questionable. Well, why wait? Shall give it now.”
Continuing the story about Gary Sobers, Amitabh Bachchan wrote that during a cricket match, Gary Sobers opened up his bottle of rum in the dressing room and had a few pegs. After a while, at the field, he went on to score his fastest hundred. When asked how did he do it, he said “when I went out I was seeing three balls I was hitting the middle one!!!"
Big B wrote his eye condition was somewhat similar. “I am seeing three letters for each word and hitting the middle button.”
Even at the age of 78, Amitabh Bachchan is a busy actor and has as many as five projects on hand, which are in various stages of completion. While his suspense thriller Chehre with Emraan Hashmi will hit the cinemas on April 30, 2021, the forthcoming sports epic Jhund will release on June 18, 2021. The mega sci-fi thriller Brahmastra, where the megastar will share screen space with Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt is yet to be completed, and may see its release in 2022. While Chehre may need Big B’s time for promotion, Jhund, which is in post-production, can require some shooting dates from the actor if all are not well. In addition, he will be seen in a guest appearance in Queen, the Kannada remake of Vikas Bahl’s Queen. He also has his forthcoming project with Vikas Bahl that has been tentatively titled Goodbye.
