“When they say not, it is the right impetus to say and deliver that it has been successful and achieved,” he wrote on the blog. The cine icon had revealed last year that he had been nursing a “stiff neck and shoulder pain” as a result of past injuries from stunts he did in the 1970s and 1980s.

        Sometimes, rather most of the time, the body talks to us tells us we need to slow down. Take heed Amitabh, I believe your body is trying to tell you something. You have a great talent for the written spoken word perhaps the time is perfect for you to pen your thinking make appearances at student campuses with 'words of wisdom' for the youth of India !!
