New Delhi: Aamir Khan opened up about Amitabh Bachchan's health saying that he is back on the sets of Thugs Of Hindostan and his 'health is better now'. He added that Big B had been 'suffering with shoulder and back pain, as he is filming a lot of actions scenes after a many years,' reported news agency IANS. "I shot with Amitji last night itself. It's true that he has pain in the shoulder and back. But this film also has a lot of action scenes for him. I think it is after a lot of years that you will see Amitji doing a lot of action.
