Are age and work finally catching up with Amitabh Bachchan? The actor was caught napping at a felicitation function!

Bachchan was at Satyam Cinema in Chennai where he was honoured by the Film Federations on Saturday. The 67-year-old veteran dozed off before the ceremony and woke up thoroughly disoriented, not knowing where he was.

Filmmaker Balki who was with the Big B, says, “He was fine. He finally had some sleep.” At the end of the evening, the Big B had 24 shawls to bring back, though he had gone with only a day’s baggage. Asked what he would do with the massive haul, the Big B said: “I’ll give them to the needy.”

But the shawls were the least of his burdens. Says Balki: “Last week, he was running around for (Paa’s) premiere. On Friday morning, he left to shoot for Bigg Boss without any sleep after the premiere. After shooting the entire day, he attended a party and then on Saturday morning he left for Chennai. At an age when a lot of us will be in a rocking chair, he’s still rocking.”
