Amitabh Bachchan, you must have heard the name before. Who are we kidding, right?! The star of the millennium, Shehenshah of Bollywood, Big B has changed the face of Indian Film Industry. Having established himself as the action hero of the 70-80s, the actor continues to work tirelessly even in the age of 77 to deliver memorable roles and live up to the expectations of his fans. And that my friends, is a living legend.

As the actor turns a year older today, Bollywood is all praises for the megastar. One of the most prominent faces among the well-wishers today is Filmmaker Karan Johar. On the occasion of his special day, Karan has penned an emotional note on social media wishing Big B a very happy birthday. He wrote that he was just a toddler when he realised his magnitude and was privileged enough to grow up in front of his eyes.

While earlier Karan was told that touching the feet of an elder is a mark of respect, it comes naturally to him on seeing Big B. Although he calls him Amit Uncle, Big B is just like a father to him and he gets star-struck by his aura every time the superstar is around him. Referring to the actor as his biggest inspiration, Karan has remarked that a legend like him is irreplaceable. Overwhelmed by the kind words, Amitabh Bachchan’s kids Abhishek and Shweta have also showered love on the post.

I was a 3 or 4 years old when I began to realise the magnitude of the man….subsequently I had the privilege of growing up around him … I was first told I must always touch his feet as a mark of respect…but very soon after it came absolutely naturally to me…in fact it’s now a reflex action when I see him and I can never stop myself ( even when i know my pants are perhaps a tad tight and it could result in an embarrassing tear) I call him Amit uncle( with great pride…almost patting my back because I have the right to this familiarity) and he will always be like a father figure to me….I probably can never be entirely myself around him because that starstruck kid with big awestruck eyes every time he walked into a room has never ever left me…and never will…I fainted the First time I had to work him and am not sure things have changed even today…I faint a little in my head everytime I meet him and then compose myself so I can play act serious filmmaker again! Amitabh Bachchan is my hugest inspiration …his child like enthusiasm for everything he does…his paramount passion for every tiny detail…his ambition to keep achieving after being the ambassador of achievement …what do I say…there will never be a man and legend like him ever again! And there shouldn’t be….he has earned the place of mega movie star monopoly! Happy birthday Amit uncle! We love you so much….🙏🙏❤️❤️
