- Big B celebrates his 75th birthday today
- Posts from his Instagram date back to when Abhishek was born
- Abhishek also contributed a few of his own
We'll start with the one starring the "Bachchan bunch," comprising Shweta and Abhishek Bachchan and their cousins. This is from sometime in the mid-eighties, when Big B was hospitalised while shooting for a Manmohan Desai film and the kids had paid him a visit.
#throwbackthursday taken in the mid 80's ( 1985 if memory serves). I call it Big B and the Bachchan bunch. Dad was hospitalised with Mysthenia Gravis and my sister, cousins and I had gone to visit him. Being too young to understand what all was going on our parents always made it out to be like an outing so that we would not be disturbed by the hospital and its workings. When I used to visit my father after his accident on the sets of "Coolie" in 1982, seeing him connected to many drips and machines, he used to tell me they were kites that he had got for me. I was 6 yrs old. My father was fighting for his life and all I thought about was... why isn't he allowing me to play with these kites??? The innocence of childhood I guess.
This is what Amitabh Bachchan shared to commemorate 40 years of Amar Akbar Anthony. Big B co-starred with Rishi Kapoor and Vinod Khanna in the cult comedy.

Here are Big B and Dharmendra as harmless looking criminals. "Two very keen, committed, interested artists on the sets of Sholay, the jail sequence," Big B captioned.
Here's three generations of the Bachchans in one single photo:
It is my late grandfather's Birthday today. Miss him dearly. Whilst growing up, on our birthdays he would write a poem for each of his grandchildren. We didn't understand that when everybody else was giving us presents why Dadaji would just write us a poem. Today I realise that those pieces of paper are greater than any present we could have ever received. The love and wisdom in those hand written letters are priceless. Love you Dadaji and I proudly carry the name that you gave me.
And then, he had the best caption for Jaya Bachchan from when she was not married to Big B yet.

This was captioned the most DAD-way ever.
