Fame is transitory: Amitabh Bachchan
New Delhi: He continues to be one of the most loved stars at 69 but megastar Amitabh Bachchan feels fame is transitory and will fade away one day.
The 69-year-old actor, who had an evening out after his surgery with family, admits that it is a bit discomforting to be forgotton.
"There have been many occasions when interest has faded from the celebrity. Has happened to me on many an occasion. It is a bit discomforting, but it must be known that this glory and recognition shall all fade away one day. Some take it kindly, some do not.
"It is hard and harsh both to see adulation favor away from you and settle on another. Better then to not be too enamored by it when it serves you. Life is transitory as is fame. Be content when it is there by your side. Be gracious in accepting that it has gone away, elsewhere. Let others evaluate what the contribution? If ever there was? Should be," Bachchan posted on his blog.
The actor, who is busy these days for his performance in the opening ceremony Indian Premiere League, said his fitness regime is helping him to recover fast from the surgery.
"The workouts at the gym go well? Gradually increasing the speed of the walk, the weight in the hands. There is great pleasure in this routine. The circulation, the easing of the muscles, the breathing and then finally the sit out in the sun."
