Bollywood veteran actor Amitabh Bachchan completed 50 years in the industry on Friday, February 15. To mark the occasion, son actor Abhishek Bachchan penned a heart-warming note for his 'dearest pa' on social media. Abhishek took to his Instagram and shared a picture of himself donning a grey graphic sweatshirt which has Big B's image and the word 'icon' printed on it.
In the post, Jr. Bachchan talked about his father's hard work and contribution to the Indian film industry. He lauded how Amitabh Bachchan being in his 70's is still dedicated to his work. The 'Manmarziyaan' actor captioned the post saying, "ICON! To me, he's so much more. My father, best friend, guide, best critic, greatest support, idol..... HERO! 50 years today he started his journey in films. Even today, his passion and love for his craft and work are the same as I'm sure it was on the first day. Dearest Pa, today we celebrate you, your talent, your passion, your brilliance, and your immense influence. Can't wait to see what you have in store for the next 50 years."
Abhishek also shared how today itself he learnt a really cool thing from the megastar. He wrote, "The coolest thing he taught me today....As I went, in the morning to wish him for completing 50 years of being an actor and to tell him that I was leaving for work- I asked him where he was all ready to go to? He said..... To work."
