Amitabh Bachchan happy with ‘Raavan'
Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan on Saturday revealed he suffers from liver cirrhosis even though he doesn't drink alcohol. The actor said he contracted the disease after his near fatal accident while shooting ‘Coolie’ in 1982.
Amitabh met with the accident during one of the action scenes in the film ‘Coolie’. His surgery required a lot of blood. The urgency of its administration propelled several volunteers to come forward. Two hundred people donated blood and 60 bottles of blood were collected and injected in the actor. But, this caused the problem.
But as per his nature, Big B showed that why he is such a favourite among the masses when he said,” I am alarmed that you are alarmed at my condition, medically. It has been something that has remained with me for years and years and years. From being horned by a bull in the head when I was perhaps two years old to my more recent escapades, it is a saga that never seems to end, for, what is more in store for me I cannot comprehend.”
Meanwhile, his son Abhishek and daughter-in-law Aishwariya’s film ‘Raavan’ is slated to release soon. Amitji expresses his impression about the film.
“The music launch took place in a simple yet well designed ceremony at the Yash Raj Studios. Abhishek and Aishwarya returned last night early morning of the 24th, and after releasing the music and performing for it on stage as part of the event have left for Greece, for the shoot of Farhan(Akhtar) and Ritesh(Sidhwani) produced, Abhinav Deo directed film and after completing that schedule from there to Istanbul for Rohan Sippy’s film.”
He further added, “There has been a fantastic reaction by the media to the film. Many have written in to me through sms and one particular veteran has said ‘it shall be the film of the year’. We cross our fingers and toes and touch our heads and wood! AR Rahman is at his very best whenever he has worked with Mani Ratnam and this one is no different. His music, sound and arrangement is a master class. Three on this CD have attracted me immensely and I am certain that in time, more value shall emanate from the tracks. It has always been the norm for every composition by Rahman - the music just grows on you.”
