Mr. Amitabh Bachchan is the living legend! Creating ripples, even at the age of 73. The recitation of Mr. Harivansh Rai Bachchan's poems in his baritone melts the hearts of millions around the world. There are innumerable reasons we respect and love him. He is a multi-faceted personality.
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.
The temple has his shoes and photo placed on a large chair.
A pilgrimage takes place two times every year. First on 11 October (on his birthday) and second on 2 August (when Big B returned after injury in movie "coolie"). The pilgrims start from Kolkata and ends in Mumbai
This is the cover of the Big B's Chalisa. Depicting him as a God, with divine light in the background. This is sung for 6 minutes every day. It is of 9 pages.
He is applauded for being an awesome actor, for his tall stature and for having a fabulous voice.
His indelible advertisements are highlighted here. Remembering his ads for Cadbury and Hajmola and his super-duper hit movies. An interesting composition!
His versatility as an actor, engagement in social work and hosting Kaun Banega Crorepati have been avidly described in these pages.
He makes us happy with his films and talent.
Big B agrees to give a pair of his shoes to the temple.
Posters saying "Jai Shri Amitabh", are hung in the temple. But, he insists on not showering him with the status of God.
A poster of Big B waving is attached to the wall of the temple. It is as tall as him!
"Arre ye jeena bhi koi jeena hai Lallu?" This is his famous dialog from the film Natwarlal. Remembering this, we can learn to live like him.
Happy 73rd birthday to Big B!
