Amitabh Bachchan, a Day of Prayer to Mark His Father's Death Anniversary

 Amitabh Bachchan, a Day of Prayer to Mark His Father's Death Anniversary


I shall be in prayer with him in his surroundings," Big B posted on his blog

Remembering Harivansh Rai Bachchan on his 12th death anniversary on Sunday, his son and megastar Amitabh Bachchan paid a tribute to the noted poet.

Harivansh Rai, who is credited with works like Madhushala and Agneepath, died on January 18, 2003.

"It is the death anniversary of my Father. When you think of those moments it sends shivers, apprehensions, prayer and remembrance to the one departed, especially when it happens to be your own Father," the 72-year-old posted on his official blog on Sunday.

"I shall be in prayer with him in his surrounding, for whatever little that we can do for him, it is after all the day of his passing. My Father... my father... lost today but in my thoughts and mind continuously... where do they go, and where are they that seek indifference to their problems."

Many wonder if they reached the doors of heaven, of meeting that phantom like 'old man' with rather large beard and a guffaw at his disposal... reverential and obedient and filled with pardon to be sought from the one that sacrificed his," he added.

Meanwhile, Big B, currently busy promoting his forthcoming film Shamitabh, has cut his finger.

He tweeted:

Salaamat Rahe Dostaana': Amitabh Bachchan attends Shatrughan Sinha’s son’s wedding

That the dynamics of relationships among the stalwarts of the Indian Film Industry keep changing is a thing of common knowledge; more so with the superstars Amitabh Bachchan and Shatrughan Sinha who jointly ruled the silver screen in the 1970s. Having worked together in movies like ‘Kaala Patthar’, ‘Naseeb’, ‘Shaan’ and ‘Dostana’, the relations between Big B and Shotgun, as they are fondly called have always been soured. When asked about the history to such clashes, Shatrughan Sinha had said, “Jawaani thhi, josh thha, ego issues they.

But now the duo seems to have buried the hatchet and mended bridges. Amitabh Bachchan was seen attending Shatrughan Sinha’s son Kussh’s wedding in Mumbai on January 18 and an ecstatic Sonakshi Sinha took to Twitter to thank her ‘Amit Uncle’ and ‘Jaya Aunty’ for gracing the occasion. 
She captioned the pictures, “Salaamat rahe dostaana aapka! Thank u @SrBachchan uncle and jaya aunty for the warmth and happiness :)” 

In one, Amitabh Bachchan can be seen warmly greeting Shatrughan Sinha.

The second picture shows Sonakshi Sinha flanked by veteran actresses Jaya Bachchan, Hema Malini, Poonam Dhillon and Tina Ambani.  

Earlier, the Sinhas had returned the box of sweets sent to them by the Bachchans on the occasion of Abhishek and Aishwarya’s wedding in 2007. “Jab bulaaya nahin toh mitthaai kis baat ki?” Shatrughan Sinha was quoted saying. As a reply to this, Big B had said, “Those who were not invited were not friends in the first place.” 

The route back to friendship, however, started when last year when the Bachchans invited the Sinhas over to their grand Diwali bash and Shatrughan Sinha along with wife Poonam, daughter Sonakshi and sons Kussh and Luv attended the party.
