Amitabh Bachchan's health affected by Bbuddah's promotions
Actor Amitabh Bachchan has been quite busy promoting his upcoming home production, Bbuddah Hoga Terra Baap and now it has taken a toll on his health. From radio stations to press conferences or TV channels, Big B is leaving no stone unturned to promote his upcoming film. However, this rigorous stress has affected his health.
“There has been a setback in the health I think .. a congestion arises in the chest and the throat has become hoarse and painful at the glands … so back to home doctor and on to antibiotics to control it,” Amitabh Bachchan wrote on his blog.
Mr Bachchan reasons that the throat congestion is due to his constant speaking in last few days. He wrote, “… it could also be from the fact that I normally speak as much as I did in the past few days, in a year. My entire quota for the year ending 2011 would still be less than what I have done in the last 2 days. That is a lot of talking! And when I do get back home its like being drugged … just dozing off even while standing and lack of complete energy. This is not good, once a chest condition begins with me it takes forever to heal and become normal. So its best given the treatment before it gets out of hand…”
Under medication, Amitabh is doing much better now. “I see as usual the fraternity anxious and worried about my condition, but there really is nothing in it. I am good and in fine fettle. Its all the others that tire and fall ill - my staff, security, make up etc. Virus in the air is taking its toll on all. But all is good with me, do not worry!!” Big B informed in his latest post.
Bbuddah Hoga Terra Baap hits the theaters on July 1.

My dearest and most loved EF ..
Greetings and good wishes and love from one who has admired you from the day we started this association. I have been at it in the radio studios, one after the other and finally ending up at MTv and have only just returned a short while ago ..
I see as usual the fraternity anxious and worried about my condition, but there really is nothing in it. I am good and in fine fettle. Its all the others that tire and fall ill - my staff, security, make up etc. Virus in the air is taking its toll on all. But all is good with me, do not worry !!
In the entire journey today the last at MTv was the most thrilling and fruitful I think. They had really gone out of their way to celebrate my arrival at their studios, built special programmes for me and for the film, put up sets to match the occasion .. really very enterprising .. and then the irrepressible Cyrus and all the other dudes - Jose and Rhea and Ayushman all managed by live wire Jaggi .. great time was had by all .. cracking up doing mad things .. great fun !! Took them on at their programme ‘What the Hack’, where they discuss latest inventions .. gave them a long spiel on what all I do - Blogging, Twitter, Vogging, iPad, iPod, Mac and spoke of all my relations with the people on the blog .. they were so impressed, that they were ready to leave the studio and put me on the anchors chair !! Ha ha Ha !! I mean they were pretty impressed that I was managing all this social networking all by myself !!
Ok enough of the ‘trumpets’ ! And on to some other queries that are being asked repeatedly - the 4 promos of Balki. They should be on air tomorrow, but what I can do is get them up here for you as soon as the sun reaches its highest point in the hemisphere .. Okaaayyy !! Glad to see some smiles of approval coming my way ..
And hey ! A few Hollywood hotties are giving interviews to the media on our film industry and invariably some of the stuff that comes out from them is a bit … well ..
Tom Hanks would not mind doing a film here provided he had me in the film opposite him .. me and Abhishek .. or so the press today had to say ! Ha ha !! Such a funny moment .. I mean do you really believe this to be true ?? And what is the young man’s name … Reynolds, from the ‘Green Lantern’ .. he too has heard of moi and is keen to meet up .. I mean … this is getting too much yaaar !! These guys are international stars that are stratospheric in their standing. Why would they be knowing us !! Cannot seem to understand !! Don’t believe me … fine shall put up the cuttings tomorrow .. ok .. right !
The lovely and lively and non stop motor mouth Malishka at RedFM is always a delight to be with. Today she was uncontrollable ! Just carried on non stop ! A sweetheart really ! Such fun to be with her and in front of a mic !!
Tomorrow is a relatively easier day … so what I shall do is connect with all in the morning hours and spend some more time putting up pictures of today and of a few days before .. plan ?? ok plan !!
Good night dear ones … calling it a day, before the medication hits in and I forget to push the ‘Public Post’ button ..
Love to all as ever,

APOLOGIES ! APOLOGIES ! APOLOGIES !
Just could not make the blog public last night ! Reminded by EF as I am waking up and have rushed to do so .. reason ?.. have been under the weather, a terrible throat, a congested chest condition and medication that is making me feel drowsy and weak .. perhaps in that stupor simply forgot to check that the post button was on ‘Private’ instead of ‘Public’ and … well ..
Am rushing off again for more radio stations and media interviews .. shall be with all of you by the evening or late night .. and seeking forgiveness for the mess up last night !!
Love as ever ..Amitabh Bachchan
