Big B celebrates birthday, eager to turn 70!
Bollywood’s veteran actor, Amitabh Bachchan, turns 69 today. But even at this age, there’s not even a bit of a change in his unmatched poise and lively attitude. Big B is one celeb, who is well connected with his fans through numerous online sites. In spite of being busy, he makes it a point to update his blog and tweet to reach out to his fans.
Today, as Big B celebrates his birthday, he shared an anecdote with his fans on his blog.
Amitabh Bachchan wrote, “I was born today ! 11th of October 1942 in Allahabad in a small private maternity outfit run by a missionary Dr Brar, in the most crowded market area of the city, Katra. I was brought home by my parents in the best possible transport machinery that they could afford - a tonga ! Wrapped in a 'gudari' I still refer to many that I am a 'gudari ka lal' - a human that is affiliated with the cheapest form of clothing. I loved being in that form and still love it (sic).”
“I have noticed on many occasions that the life and the style of those that live in such conditions, is closest to me in temperament. There is a certain sense of attachment every time I come in close contact with people and circumstances that narrate to me stories of the time. That is my most alluring possession. The complete ease that I feel and identify with when in the company of those that inhabit those lands," he writes. Big B regularly shares his personal and professional experiences with his followers, calling them his "extended family.”
“As I step into the 70's unabashedly, I need to thank several of those that I feel were the ones that seemed distressed with the number of my age. But no they are not so ! When they speak of age and involvement, why must we only look upon the aged, onto those that show the ravishes of time and the hunger of recognition. I would imagine that we must let the world be as it is and allow whatever shape it desires to take vis a vis individuals (sic).”
It seems that Amitabh Bachchan got really nostalgic, as he penned down the fond memories of his childhood. He was kind enough to share his personal and professional experiences through his blog.
We, the Dailybhaskar team wish Amitabh Bachchan, a very Happy Birthday and a great career ahead!
