Seeing a surge in Coronavirus cases, the Government had earlier mandated that individuals above 65 years of age are prohibited from stepped out of the house and working. With this, Amitabh Bachchan, 78-years old, took to his Blog and shared a note saying that for people like him, his profession and his 78 yrs, couldn't help him resume work, as he is a senior citizen. He even asked if there are any alternate jobs for him. Seeing concerns for his career, a fan of Big B shared a job prospect with him and this was recently posted by the actor on his blog. Yes, a fan offered him a job, to which, he said that his job is now insured.
A part of his blog on his career read, "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??"
After this, he got a letter from his fan that read, "Dear Mr. Amitabh Bachchan, Re: Your Application for an alternate job vide Day 4539 In view of the permanent kind of temporary moratorium on work imposed on you by the governance due to your age, and the loss of revenue caused by the same, we are pleased to inform you that your application for an alternate job is temporarily under review for permanent reasons… (By the way, before we forget, please register our request that if you understand anything of what we are saying, please let us know too…)" The letter further read, "So, here is our offer - Sir, if you wish to do nothing, yet you want to feel as if you are something, then we suggest that you become the President of the United States… But if you want to do something which will last forever, then we suggest that you open a Peace Shop… Sell Peace… that shop can never go out of business…"
The letter even had a draft of a flowchart for him to prepare for the venture which consisted of 'vision, mission, aims and objectives, policies, procedure and many more.' At the end of the note, it mentions, "Looking forward to your favourable response, and assuring you of our best services at all times." Seeing an elaborate letter, Amitabha Bachchan simply wrote, "My job is now insured," at the end of his blog post.
