That is certainly what seems to be happening in Bollywood nowadays. The race to be at the top is heating up and no one can take things easy. The result, round the clock work schedules, constant travel, almost no sleep to speak off and before you know the healthiest looking person is on a hospital bed.
Yes, this comes after Saif Ali Khan's admission to a hospital last week. He is fine now. But what could cause a 35+ young man who works out regularly and to have chest pain. The answer is simple; Saif had not slept for three previous nights because he was either working or traveling.
But this is not the case only with Saif. Most of the top stars of Bollywood live similar lives. Shah Rukh Khan is one such person. The chronicles of his backache due to self inflicted physical abuse (read stress and burn out) are pretty famous. Then take the case of the Big B who was bed ridden for almost a month in 2005 due to intestinal problems. Again the culprit being lack of proper rest.
Maybe the Bollywood stars must start thinking more in terms of their health and families because as they will agree life comes before career. Or would they disagree. But there is one thing that they should know. All their fans want them to be there for a long long time. So please take care; do not burn out. Stay on.
