Even at 76, Amitabh Bachchan is one of the busiest actors of the industry, which he joined in 1969. Last year, during the filming of Thugs Of Hindostan, he told news agency PTI that he survived multiple injuries and struggled with pain because of the costume: "It is not my age to do all this but our director asked us to do so I did it. There is no part of the body that has not been broken and there is no doctor that I haven't met. There is not much improvement."

On the work front, Amitabh Bachchan has Ayan Mukerji's Brahmastra lined up, in which he co-stars with Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt. Mr Bachchan will also make a special appearance in Telugu drama Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy.

Get well soon, Amitabh Bachchan!
