Amitabh Bachchan Anxious About Finding Work During Pandemic!

Mumbai: A day after the Bombay High Court quashed the Maharashtra Government orders barring actors above 65 years of age from shooting, 78-year old Amitabh Bachchan expressed his anxiety over finding work during the ongoing pandemic.

“There are of course many other anxieties that trouble the mind. Government authorities have stipulated that those at 65 years of age and above cannot go out to work. A few days back that age limit was reduced even further to 50 yrs,” wrote Big B on his blog, as reported by Hindustan Times.

“For people like me my profession and my 78 yrs, its packers then! The Film body that formally we are all associated with did put in a counter to that in the Courts and I believe the Honourable High Court has disallowed the age limit restrictions and so for the moment those above 50 are safe to work. But Courts and Legal procedures take time and I wonder what shall come out of it. Are there any alternate work jobs for me that the Ef could in their kindness suggest, in case everything does down in the Courts,” he added.

The Bombay High Court on Friday termed the Maharashtra government orders as ‘discriminatory’ as it bars senior artists from resuming work.

A bench of Justices SJ Kathawalla and RI Chagla stated that such orders barred senior citizens from earning a livelihood with dignity.
