Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan says he has no religion and says he is an Indian.
Big B posted a Powerful post on social media honouring Gandhi Jayanti on Wednesday.
Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan has always been among those who oppose caste and creed.
Amitabh never encourages those who make provocative comments in the name of religion.
Amitabh’s remarks during the Gandhi Jayanti on Wednesday hosted the Kaun Banega Karodpati program which he is hosting.
Bachchan said his name had nothing to do with religion. He claimed that his father Harivanshrai was never a promoter of religion.
About His Life
He said he had never used that name even though his original surname was Srivastava.
When I was taking admission in LKJ, my father gave me the surname Bachchan. If a census worker came to our house and asked about religion,
I would say that I am Indian, I have no religion. Moreover, as per our family custom, on the day of the Holi festival, all the elders in the house are coloured and blessed.
My father respected the people around him. I am not ashamed to say this. On the occasion of Holi, my father used to paint a toilet cleaner at my father’s house after blessing Holi.
When Amitabh is saying these things, the audience was shocked. Whenever available, Amitabh shares with his fans about his family and their traditions.
At the age of seven, Amitabh is making a series of films. He played the role of Chiranjeevi’s teacher in the film Saira Narasimhareddi which is released on Wednesday.
The film was first hit on the Rs 50 crore club and was a blockbuster hit. Amitabh from the Mega Family has not received any remuneration for the film.
Ram Charan said at one point that he did not discuss remuneration and not even ask for the flight costs of the shooting. Amitabh is currently busy with Gulabo Sitabo movie.
