Big B remembers father on his 9th death anniversary
Bollywood mega star Amitabh Bachchan feels grateful to have shared 60 years of his life with his father, who passed away nine years ago.
Harivansh Rai Bachchan, a noted Hindi poet, died in 2003 at the age of 95 as a result of respiratory ailments at Amitabh's residence 'Prateeksha'.
"Harivansh Rai Bachchan, my father... his death anniversary today 18th Jan. I stand silently at the entrance to his room in Prateeksha and look at the space he breathed his last...!!," Amitabh posted on his Twitter.
The actor, 69, who always takes inspiration from his father's poem, also posted a poem by his father on his blog.
"I spent more than '60 years of my life with him', a friend consoles me as I lament his loss, many do not get so much time with loved...," tweeted Bachchan. PTI
