Amitabh remembers Michael Jackson
The pop icon Michael Jackson breathed his last on Friday morning due to cardiac arrest. His name will always remain evergreen in the history of music as he has introduced the world to a new version of music. Not only Hollywood but Bollywood also remembered the pop star in their own way and among the Bollywood celebrities is superstar Amitabh Bachchan. Big B remembers Michael as an ‘exceptional artiste’.
He wrote on his blog, "It was in the mid-70s that lightning stuck and from it emerged this grown up version of Michael Jackson singing, moving and dancing like he was from some other planet".
"Mesmerised by his brilliance in each and every department of music and performance, he changed the very psyche, of not just the kind of music he was making, but also the psyche of the listening audience. Nothing compared to him," the actor, who is in London, further wrote.
Big B recalled the day when Michael Jackson visited to India and how his concert in Mumbai had shook ‘Pratiksha’ as music and lights echoed and flashed throughout the night. He too shared with us the memory when Michael by mistake knocked his hotel door in New York. He even remembered the days when he used to dress up small Abhishek like Michael and made him danced to the tune of his thriller.
