Veteran actor Amitabh Bachchan has taken ill on the sets of his upcoming movie Thugs of Hindostan. As per media reports, a team of doctors has been rushed from Mumbai in a chartered plane to tend to the actor in Jodhpur. The 75-year-old actor was in the city to finish shooting for his role in YRF's ambitious project co-starring Aamir Khan, Katrina Kaif, and Fatima Sana Sheikh.
Doctors said the superstar's condition is stable. On Tuesday morning, the actor took to his blog to discuss his health issues which sparked concerns. He wrote, "I am getting my team of Doctors in tomorrow morning to fiddle around with my body and set me up again... I will rest and keep informed in the process,"
He also wrote about the grueling shoot schedule of the Vijay Krishna Acharya-directed film, which also features Aamir Khan."The morning after the night that began yesterday for work some people need to work for a living and work hard.

"Its been rough.. but whenever did any be achieved without it .. there is struggle and disappointment and pain and sweat and tears... then the expectation of all working out .. sometimes it does, most of the times not... it is the right impetus to say and deliver that it has been successful and achieved," he added.
Directed by Dhoom 3 director Vijay Krishna Acharya, Thugs of Hindostan is an adaptation of the 1839 novel Confessions of a Thug.
Amitabh completed the first leg of the shoot for the film in Thailand and described it as one of toughest shoots of his career. "Strangely though, the so-called harsh schedule just completed in the wilds and hills and chills of mountainous Thailand... of disciplined, gentle and smiling Thai has not had any after effects of discomfort or malaise. It's been tough, the shoot for 'Thugs of Hindostan', but in a funny way very energising," Amitabh had written on his blog after completing the shoot.
The film is high on action and thrills, demanding the actors to work hard on their physical and mental fitness. The female leads have already been sharing videos of their workout on their social media handle.
Amitabh also has another film in his kitty 102 Not Out, which also stars vet, ran star Rishi Kapoor. The actors will be starring together after two decades.
