Bachchan recently wrapped filming on his next film, Chehre (2020), with Emraan Hashmi, in freezing cold Slovakia. In October, the 77-year-old actor was admitted to Nanavati Hospital for a routine checkup.
The Dadasaheb Phalke honoree attended the opening ceremony of this year’s golden jubilee edition of the International Film Festival of India in Goa earlier this year.
