Amitabh Bachchan's family - son Abhishek Bachchan, daughter-in-law Aishawarya Rai Bachchan and daughter Shweta Nanda Bachchan - often feature on his social media posts, a trend which Abhishek also seems to follow. Here's a vintage photograph from the 1980s when Big B was being treated for mysthenia gravis. "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," Abhishek had Instagrammed.
#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.
Meanwhile, Amitabh Bachchan wrapped the first schedule of Thugs Of Hindostan in Malta, his film with Aamir Khan. Directed by Vijay Acharya Krishna, Thugs Of Hindostan also stars Fatima Sana Shaikh and Katrina Kaif, and is expected to hit screens sometime next year.
