Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan turned a year older on Monday, and the actor marked his special day with an uber-cool social media post. Taking to his Instagram handle, Bachchan posted a photo collage in which he can be seen walking, sporting his green shoes and stylish sling bags. ".... walking into the 80th," he captioned the post. Fans and fellow members of the film industry went gaga after seeing Bachchan's trendy avatar and flooded the comments section with birthday wishes. But what caught everyone's attention was his daughter Shweta Nanda's comment as she quickly corrected a mistake in the post.
He even penned a blog post on Sunday night, writing that it would be impossible for him to acknowledge every wish but he was touched by the messages from his fans. "The intensity of the greetings is abundant and wide and filled with the warmth of affection. This is held together by the fond remembrances that we share over the years... its bond is unbreakable, resolute and firm. For this my (heart)," he wrote.
Big B even shared the same picture on his Twitter handle and wrote alongside, "T 4057 - .. walking into the 80th .. जब साठा (60 ) तब पाठा जब अस्सी (80) तब लस्सी !!! मुहावरे को समझना भी एक समझ है !!" Have a look at Big B's post here:
