Amitabh Bachchan, the 'Shahenshah of Bollywood', has completed a new milestone that extends his extraordinary longevity into a new medium!
We know him for his stunning performances from the 70s and 80s that went a long way towards defining what Bollywood superstardom means.
We know him for making quizzing a national primetime pastime with Kaun Banega Crorepati.
We know him for making a sensational return to headlining films in the noughties and 2010s.
We know him for his passionate support for India in Cricket and other sports. (In fact, aftershocks of his titanic celebratory rumble after India's win in the U-19 World Cup earlier this year are still being felt!)
And now, we know him as a veteran blogger!
Yes, Amitabh Bachchan has completed a decade-worth of blogging!
10 years .. !
April 17, 2008 a few words went out to the world of the airs .. and in the waves of connection some of them carried a recognise of them and sent some sentiments back .. and the next and the next and the next ..
.. and 10 years went by ..
I knew no one .. and neither did any of you .. and then we all came to know each other and built a home .. the warmest and most hospitable in the entire world ..
.. does 10 years need celebration .. why 10 why not 11 or many more or other .. I have often wondered on these celebratory fawning .. each day is a celebration and each day is lived with the harmony of our togetherness .. this is the ultimate celebration ..
.. it is not just the continuity of my writings .. it is also the continuity of your feelings as well .. when you do not respond, I fear there has been a loss .. a loss is unbearable and so it remains constant .. the joint family of the Ef .. the Ef does not need elaboration .. it is now in developed character, a world , a living, a constant by itself .. it has strength of its existence and the affection of millions ..
… celebrations bring wishes and counter wishes .. we can do without them .. we have for so many years .. and we may and shall continue .. as ever before ..
This is my blog..welcome to it and hope we have a pleasant time reacting with each other.
i shall start with a few views on my upcoming film ‘Bhoothnath’.. hope you will give your comments.
