According to The Statesman, Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan turned a year older on Monday (October 11, 2021), and he celebrated the occasion with an uber-cool social media post.
Bachchan shared a photo collage on Instagram in which he can be seen walking while wearing his green shoes and elegant sling bags. He captioned the photo, “…. going into the 80th.”
Many people were taken aback by Shweta Bachchan Nanda’s remark. Shweta chimed in with a correction in the comments section. “79th (heart emoji),” she wrote. Navya Naveli Nanda, the actress’s granddaughter, used a clapping emoji.
After viewing Bachchan’s fashionable avatar, fans and colleagues in the film industry went crazy and crowded the comments section with birthday greetings.
His supporters gathered outside the ‘Jalsa’ mansion earlier today to commemorate the actor’s birthday. Outside the actor’s home, fans were seen cutting a cake and playing music.
“We have come here from Bhiwandi to celebrate his birthday,” a devotee named Sejal remarked. We, as fans, are really fortunate that he is still alive and well, and that he continues to provide us with excellent films and performances. Silsila, Yaraana, Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gum, Don, and Baghban are among my favorite films.”
In the comments section, Bollywood hotshot Ranveer Singh referred to the film legend as a “gangster.” Bhumi Pednekar, who plays the actress Bhumi Pednekar, wished the actor a happy birthday, writing, “swag Happy birthday sir.”
