Our Wednesday couldn't get any better as we chanced upon a million-dollar throwback picture of Amitabh Bachchan and his actor son Abhishek. The photograph, from the Seventies, has been shared by a fan on the occasion of Basant Panchami today - Abhishek's birthday on February 5, 1976 coincided with Basant Panchami that year. Abhishek will turn 44 in February this year. The throwback picture is special for many reasons. In case you are wondering how, first, it shows Big B adorably looking at his newborn son Abhishek in a hospital and second, it also features Amitabh Bachchan's mother Teji Bachchan. In the black-and-white photo, little Abhishek can be seen resting in an incubator with Big B, Teji Bachchan and other hospital staff standing around him.
