While family friends and fans are determined to celebrate the mighty Bachchan’s 75th birthday on 11 October with suitable fanfare, the cynosure of all eyes remains insistent there won’t be any birthday celebration or media interaction.
When I contacted him this is what he had to say: “Such a waste of time and unnecessary fuss over my 75 years.”
Mr Bachchan is not only against all celebration on his 75th birthday he is also not doing any media interaction this year.
We asked someone very close to him why the Big B is averse to celebrating his birthday when every year he sportingly indulges all his fans, friends , family and journalists.
Says the member of the Bachchan parivar, “With all that is happening around us, the killings the scams the scandals and controversies he has lost the will to celebrate anything, let alone his birthday. We will have a very low key Diwali celebration too this year.”
