Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan has called himself an absolute "besura" (out-of-tune) singer. The actor, who is known to give voice to many popular songs such as "Holi khele Raghubeera", "Ekla cholo re" and "Shava shava", took to his blog on Wednesday night and wrote: "Finally I think we have or rather I have done the job to completion. He wrote, "Four songs by this absolute 'besura' singer and soon hopefully shall put them up for listening, provided of course there is no sniggering smirking facial contortions."
The 76-year-old thespian said that he had several other tasks to complete. "The other active activity is the cleaning up of the surroundings. Oh dear, what relief. When you suddenly discover that most of that which was crowding the environ was in fact of no use at all... gifted it away or simply trashed it," he said. Then he ends the blog saying, "unless you do it yourself .. nothing works for the self !"
Just a few days back, Amitabh Bachchan's blog clocked 11 years and he thanked his fans on the occasion for being so consistent with him all these years. He wrote, "11 considered auspicious and at times pious in most of India. I can only with folded hands, pray for its continuity and its longevity in the times to come. My sincerity shall, I hope, have the capacity to match what you have given me." The 76-year-old thespian also took to Twitter to express his happiness. "On 17th of April 2008, began the blog. Today 11 years of it 17th April 2019. Every day without a break. Thank you my extended family for your love affection and grace. We hold hands in peace consideration and understanding. Values most cherished," he wrote on Twitter.
