Amitabh Bachchan has been soldiering on to complete shooting for the ongoing season of Kaun Banega Crorepati despite health concerns. The actor was recently advised bed rest and shared an update on his blog that read: “Lying around, skipping time to go by in rapid form...and reminiscing the work front by the day after...when there shall be the chair and the computerji and the audience.”

On Tuesday 12 November, the show’s producer took to laud Bachchan for his “unflagging energy and zest” for pulling off a 12-hour shoot with another one scheduled for the next day. “And so he soldiers on, single-mindedly, with unflagging energy and zest. A 12 hour day on the floor yesterday, the same to be repeated today, hitting it out of the park...”

Big B also tweeted a few photos from the show and wrote, “There is no work without work...”

Bachchan cancelled his appearance at the 25th Kolkata International Film Festival, which was scheduled for 8 November because of health issues. He had earlier bowed out of the Sharjah Book Fair on 30 October as well.

The actor has been sharing sporadic health updates on his blog and Twitter. He shared a photo of himself catching a football match from as he lay bed-ridden and wrote, “So one listens to the body... and many shall there be who will applaud and commit to say... 'Did we not tell you this to slow down?’ Slow down? That’s what you tell the vehicle or the train on road and track. So what?”
