At 71, Bachchan hits the gym everyday

Mumbai, Oct 28 (IANS) Megastar Amitabh Bachchan does not associate himself with lethargy and the exhaustion that comes with age. He still makes it a point to workout at the gym every day.

"Despite the pain, despite the inconsistency, despite the 'aalasya' - the lethargy of human, despite all else... the push to gym, come what may," Bachchan posted late Sunday night.

"Bear it, struggle with it, allow it to tear into the body, scream out the music with effort... and conclude with that something satisfaction of fighting an oddity," the 71-year-old added.

The pain and the struggle of going to the gym motivates him to go back the next day as well.

"Be that as it may, the following day there shall be effort again. Stubbornness

…

yes! At least in some respects, but the ultimate gain shall remain - of having continued even when there was no evidence of any prescribed continuity," he said.

On the work front, Bachchan is currently hosting the seventh season of quiz show "Kaun Banega Crorepati" that comes on Sony.
