The letter he had written for his granddaughters moved us to tears. Plus, his moving character of a counsel in the movie Pink has been applauded and accepted widely.

Honoring the superstar of Bollywood, Mr. Sanjay Patodia built a temple of Big B with his photo and shoes. Moreover, a Chalisa has also been written on Mr. Amitabh Bachchan. The temple is built at Shridhar Road, in Kolkata, India in 2001.
