Big B postpones father's anniversary for Bigg Boss

Amitabh Bachchan in his upcoming film Paa

Amitabh Bachchan has postponed his father poet Harivansh Rai Bachchan’s anniversary celebrations by a day, as the megastar will be busy shooting for reality show Bigg Boss on that day.

The 67-year-old star, who is the host of Bigg Boss, has written in his blog that he will be celebrating his father’s birthday on November 28 instead of 27 as he will be shooting on that day.

“There is the matter of my father’s birth anniversary being celebrated on the 28th November. His birthday is on the 27th, but I record Bigg Boss on a Friday so that would be not possible, hence the next day,” Amitabh wrote.

The entire Bachchan family, including the family of Amitabh’s brother Ajitabh, are preparing for a special celebration. “Preparations for that are afoot. I shall be reciting and singing my father’s works and hopefully the family—Abhishek, Shweta and Aishwarya along with Ajitabh’s children—shall be putting in their bit,” he added.

This year will be the late poet’s 101 birth anniversary and the star is anticipating a grand commemoration. “It shall be 101 years since his birth and it is apt to think of a commemoration. It will probably be at Bhartiya Vidya Bhavan since it is this institution that has organised the event,” he wrote.

Meanwhile, the actor is busy promoting his upcoming film ‘Paa,’ which is due to release on December 4, with son Abhishek Bachchan.
