Today we say megastar Amitabh Bachchan is an influential figure whom millions admire, but this megastar has inherited tons of these praiseworthy qualities from his father and legendary poet Harivansh Rai Bachchan. Known for weaving the magic of words and wisely penning it down in the form of poems, today is the birth anniversary of the legendary poet we can’t miss on shedding some light on it. On several occasions, we have seen Big B reciting them and setting an example for his fans and followers for years now.
Honoured with Padma Shri for his works, his poems still give readers the courage and inspiration to many budding poets. Along with Padma Shri, he was also honoured with Padma Bhushan in 1976; his works also got him space on the Indian postal stamp. In 2003 a stamp with his picture was introduced. On his 112th birth anniversary let’s take a look at several such instances when the actor connecting the real-life situations to his father’s epic poems, gave us something to take back home and think over it. Check out below Big B’s video reciting the same.
One of his best works was Madhushala, which was recited by Big B in NYC at Lincoln Center.
His yet another legendary workpiece was Agnipath which doesn’t need any introduction. We have heard of these encouraging lines in an original movie starring Amitabh Bachchan of the same name, as well as its remake starring Hrithik Roshan.
The actor also during the promotion of his movie Wazir, had recited lines of his father’s poem, Rush of Life.
On the concluding note, we can say, the poems by legendary singer shall stay with us for years to come.
