Speaking about his health, Jaya Bachchan said that the ‘heavy costumes of Thugs Of Hindostan‘ caused him some pain, reported news agency IANS. “Amitji is fine. He has pain in the back and neck. The costumes are very heavy, so, there’s some pain. Otherwise, he is fine,” IANS quoted Mrs Bachchan as saying. Earlier this morning, Amitabh Bachchan revealed through his blog that he will get team of doctors from Mumbai to ‘fiddle around’ with his body and help ‘set’ him up again. Thus, indicating that it’s unlikely of him to fly back to Mumbai.

An excerpt from his blog reads, “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.” Big B is currently in Jodhpur to shoot for his forthcoming film Thugs Of Hindostan.

It appears from his blog and also an early morning tweet (at 4:51 am) that the 75-year-old actor has been shooting at odd hours and staying up late for shoots. “It’s been rough. But whenever did any be achieved without it. There is struggle and disappointment and pain and sweat and tears. Then, the expectation of all working out. Sometimes, it does, most of the times not. That not is the catalyst,” he wrote on the blog. Big B’s tweet read, “And just back from work! Bina Mehnat Ke Kuch Nahi Milta (written in Hindi) the city Jodhpur sleeps… and so shall I in a while after connecting with the well-wishers. Love.”
