As an ageing Amitabh Bachchan confesses on his blog that action sequences and heavy exercise have started taking a toll on his health, he considers the possibility of retiring. He writes:
"The back is in a mode which recalls all the misdeeds of the early years in films. Broken shoulder, now, minus any muscle to it, L3 and L4 squashed to a meeting point… and so on …
Action sequences done during the 70’s, now showing up in great majority. Spasms, keep me in pain and I wonder what I must do… so a pain killer. And magically all is as before. The trees the plants the flowers the birds ; sunshine and the joy of being able to walk straight. An MRI is suggested. Timings fixed. But at the last moment I bring on laziness and discomfort to move. Others endorse my this desire, begin unwinding there wares for a moment of business and commerce. And retire."
As most fans would remember, Big B's action sequence in Coolie in 1983 left him gravely injured.
