Megastar Amitabh Bachchan was spotted wearing a neck brace, and he says it’s due to a strained neck caused by stunts he did in his younger days.
The 74-year-old thespian was photographed wearing a neck brace while he attended his daughter-in-law and actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s father’s funeral in Mumbai on March 18.
“Many have, yes, seen the picture with the neck brace and have expressed either exclamation or remedy, or surprise… It’s factual and it’s 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 that have involved my physical movements for action deeds going horribly wrong,” Amitabh wrote on his blog.
“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… Resulting in any act or movement or subjection to an awkward resting position, those vertebrae move about again out of position, making it impossible for me to sit stand sleep rest in any position whatsoever,” he added.
