Due to his health issues, Amitabh Bachchan could not attend this year’s Sharjah Book Fair. His fans in the UAE, who were eagerly waiting to catch a glimpse of the veteran actor, were left disheartened.

According to a statement by the event’s management, the Amitabh Bachchan was, “unable to fulfill his scheduled attendance at the book fair on 30 October at 5 p.m, owing to health issues, which made him unfit to undertake overseas travel”.

The statement also mentioned the Bollywood star’s ailing health and his hospitalization in Mumbai earlier this month. “Amitabh Bachchan sent his regards to millions of fans who were eagerly anticipating to hear from him at the book fair. He expressed dismay for missing this opportunity to meet and address them,” the statement read.

Recently, Big B hosted a grand Diwali bash at his residence, which was attended by many Bollywood stars. He took to his blog to express his gratitude to the fans for their love and wishes on the occasion. “In the decorative walls of our abode JALSA .. जलसा ..  all our wishes for a Diwali that shall brighten all your homes with peace , love , fulfilment and prosperity .. may evil be destroyed , may the good flourish , may there be understanding and care for another .. and most of all a smile of genuine affection .. for all .. by all .. my prayers ..,” he wrote in his blog.
