Earlier this month, Amitabh Bachchan took to his official blog and opened up about returning to the show. He revealed how he feels ‘apprehensions, fear and doubts’ about facing the camera again. “Back to the boards and the apprehension and fears and doubts arise again .. and each season presents itself similarly .. others think otherwise .. they are not wise , or in due process of the understanding needed to face camera and audience .. a claim much debated , but in all earnestness it is factual for me,” Big B wrote.
The Jhund actor also some candid pictures of himself from the sets of the show and wrote about the importance of rehearsals even for a veteran actor like himself. “Mock rehearsals are such a must .. all the detailing of the work the changes the understanding of the job at hand and then its execution .. all a jumble just yet and the doers say its fine we shall manage and do it well ..I have nothing but praise for their confidence .. and I do hope it all falls into place .. o dear .. life is a challenge each day ..” he added.
