A movie that’s already had a major hit in India has added another to its already crowded pantheon of blockbuster hits.
The film, titled “Migraine Man”, stars Amitabh Bachchan as a neurotic doctor who finds a cure for the debilitating disease.
The film is set in a Mumbai hospital and is being produced by a film-maker who has worked on a lot of blockbuster movies including “Avengers” and “Gravity”.
“Migraines are a part of the family of illnesses,” said Amitabha, who has been battling the disease for two decades.
“It is not a physical problem, but an emotional and spiritual one.
I have worked with people with multiple sclerosis, and I know what it’s like to lose my loved ones.”
The film is being made under the name Migraine Man, and is directed by a director known for his work on “Gotham”, “The Hunger Games” and other Hollywood blockbusters.
He has made films such as “Black Mass” and a short-lived series for BBC.
Amitabh is currently battling his own illness.
He is the subject of a BBC documentary, “Mile High”, about the disease.
He has also received international recognition for his efforts.
In 2015, the Indian government announced that it would award the first ever Nobel Peace Prize to Amitabhai Bachchan for his role in “Gangster Squad”.
Migra-Man is set to be released on October 10.
It has already earned an impressive international audience, with the film garnering rave reviews.
