Amitabh Bachchan shares a lovely throwback picture with Dilip Kumar!
During their time together on the film Shakti, Amitabh Bachchan and the late, great actor Dilip Kumar had a strong relationship. Using his social media account, Big B posted some old photos of himself and the late actor on Sunday, February 4. In addition, he included a letter from Dilip Kumar, referring to him as his "idol and inspiration."
Amitabh Bachchan posted a message written by the late actor along with a montage of old pictures of himself and Dilip Kumar on his Instagram account.
In his blog, Dilip Kumar emphasized the compliment that Big B had earlier given him. Posting the letter and the images, Amitabh Bachchan captioned it, "What can one say when you receive the blessings from THE Ultimate actor, DILIP KUMAR, my idol and inspiration .."
Talking about the letter, it reads, "On Amitabh and my admiration My Dear Amitabh: With tears of pride in her eyes Saira handed over the print out of your eloquent tribute to my work in your blog. I read it once, then again and again. As you yourself would be keenly aware, we actors are completely oblivious of ourselves and our surroundings while we perform and, even when we watch our work in the rushes shown to us, our senses and vision are trained to detect shortcomings more than accomplishments."
Showering admirations on Amitabh Bachchan, the late actor's letter further reads, "If any Indian actor, in my personal opinion, deserves the world's most coveted award, it is you. I have heard so much about Paa which we didn't catch up with." You know how Saira is- she never could see me die in my films and she could not muster the courage to see your death scene in Paa."
At the end, the letter tells, "Thank you, Amitabh, for your warm love and good wishes. May God keep you, Jaya, and your family happy always."
The actor's future projects are Vettaiyan, starring Rajinikanth, and Kalki 2898 AD, starring Prabhas and Deepika Padukone. Amitabh Bachchan makes his debut in a Tamil film with Vettaiyan. He just finished a season of Kaun Banega Crorepati as well.
