Also, we’re getting to know that Amitabh Bachchan won’t be celebrating his birthday this year. His annoyance with birthdays (as mentioned above) is not the reason behind this decision. He won’t celebrate the day even with his family. According to a Bollywood Hungama report, he decided to not to celebrate his birthday because of the recent death of his daughter Shweta Bachchan Nanda’s father-in-law Rajan Nanda. The report also said that Big B was deeply saddened by Raj Kapoor’s wife Krishna Raj Kapoor’s death. Hence, he is no mood to celebrate his birthday.
“Shweta (the Big B’s daughter) lost her father-in-law Rajan Nanda a few months ago, while more recently Shweta’s mom-in-law Ritu Nanda lost her mother, the much-missed Krishna Raj Kapoor. On top of that one of Mr Bachchan’s favourite co-stars Rishi Kapoor has left for medical treatment in the US for a very serious ailment,” a source told the leading entertainment portal.
On the work front, Amitabh Bachchan is gearing up for the release of his next film Thugs of Hindostan with Aamir Khan, Fatima Sana Shaikh and Katrina Kaif. Also, he’s working on Ayan Mukerji’s next Brahmastra. He will also be seen with Taapsee Pannu in Badla, directed by Sujoy Ghosh.
