Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who recently attended the funeral of his daughter-in-law Aishwarya Rai Bachchan‘s father on Saturday, was spotted wearing a neck brace and the Big B took to his blog to share the reason behind this.
Taking to his blog, the Big B wrote, ”Many have, yes, seen the picture with the neck brace and have expressed either exclamation or remedy, or surprise… It is factual and it is on my neck, because the neck is strained. These are recurrences of old action and stunt injuries right from the time of Don and several other films that came after and that have involved my physical movements for action deeds going horribly wrong. In our time we never had the benefit of safety devises… it was raw, it was real and it was injury centric … We jumped from heights without protection, without soft landing gear, without harnesses.”
The Shahenshah went on to add, ”Difficult bike sequences, which involve dangerous riding skills are never with the leading man – most insurance companies do not allow that, but that is a different matter – they are done with duplicates and the face replaced with that of the leading man… The intervention of special effects has made life and work easy. The cervical has undergone so many damage inflicting stunts that several vertebrae are damaged, out of position, infected with trauma, and several other complicated medical terminology which I just cannot understand.”
Bachchan will be next seen in Ram Gopal Varma‘s upcoming film Sarkar 3, which also stars Manoj Bajpayee, Jackie Shroff, Amit Sadh, Yami Gautam and others.
