Amitabh Bachchan to take time off

Doctors have advised the superstar to take a break from work to rest and recoup from his long-standing health issues.

Megastar Amitabh Bachchan has apparently been advised a long layoff from acting by doctors after some long-standing health issues resurfaced recently. And this time around, he has no option but to comply.

According to sources in the know, Big B would be taking time off right after the completion and release of Nagraj Manjule’s football film Jhund in December. “The other projects that Amitji has signed will have to wait,” informs a family source, adding, “Right now, it is imperative that he takes a longish break. He is physically exhausted; his body needs rest, repair and healing.”

Sources say that the superstar’s family is also adamant about his time off. “Jaya, Shweta and Abhishek have made it very clear to Bachchan saab that this time, he must take the medical advice seriously. Although he has been advised to take time off on several occasions in recent years,” says a family friend.
