According to the host of Kaun Banega Crorepati, his doctors have told him not to exert himself or try to walk, even on a treadmill.

At times the satisfaction of the extreme may bring the joys or the griefs of existence .. but extremes do not and never last .. they either perish or leave an indelible mark .. at strategic places on the body or bodies .. that is an embarrassment .. takes a while to step out of it, so help me God .. !!!’’
