We just can’t get enough of superstar Amitabh Bachchan. Amitabh Bachchan is one of the most active celebs on social media and you can note a pattern in his recent posts. He knows how to stay abreast of the latest developments in technology. He is also an avid learner.

The latest example of the same is his recent post on Instagram, in which he has revealed a fun fact about how his son Abhishek Bachchan got his name. 

Big B shared a picture from back in the day when he played the angry young man onscreen. He was filming for Khoon Pasina (1977) when he got information that wife Jaya Bachchan has gone into labour, all set to deliver their second child. His caption for the image is not just hilarious but it even shares light on what his son Abhishek Bachchan may have been named. Check it out:

Incidentally, Amitabh Bachchan was shooting a scene where he was supposed to fight a live tiger. He captioned the picture as: "Fighting a live tiger for my film KHOON PASINA .. during shoot got news that Abhishek to be born .. crew said if boy name him Tiger (sic)." We all know that Big B didn’t follow the advice, and went for ‘Abhishek’ instead, also ‘Abhi’ fondly by close family and friends.

Well, not just can we see Amitabh fighting a tiger with his bare hands for the film, we also get to know that Abhishek was born the day this scene was being shot. And what a fantastic name it would have been had Big B listened to his crew and kept his son's name Tiger Bachchan.

Amitabh Bachchan has been posting a lot lately about his family members. Nostalgic pictures and flashback memories which are all filled with so much love and fondness that they can give anyone #FamilyGoals.

How quickly they grow up .. and innocence turns to sense ..
