Inside Pics: Amitabh Bachchan’s 74th birthday at Jalsa

Megastar Amitabh Bachchan turned 74 on 11th October and he celebrated the D-day by interacting with media and cutting cakes and by throwing party at Jalsa in the evening. Few pictures from the party was surfaced on net which shows Big B, Aishwarya and Abhishek dressed at their best and welcoming the guests.

The team of ‘Pink’ was seen driving to the party. After the party, Big B was seen bidding adieu to Pink's leading lady Taapsee Pannu. Producer Shoojit Sircar was also spotted outside Jalsa. Tushar Pandey, Vijay Verma who played Rajveer's friends and writer Ritesh Shah were present at the birthday bash. R Balki, wife and director Gauri Shinde were present at the birthday bash.

Kriti, Angad and the ‘Pink’ music director Shantanu Moitra were present.

While celebrating birthday with media when the birthday boy was asked about the ongoing debate about banning of Pakistani actors, Amitabh said: “People of this country are very angry by the incidents that have been happening at our borders. It’s time to show solidarity. It’s time to show solidarity towards our jawans and armed forces who are sacrificing their lives so that you and me can be safe.”

The actor also said that he does not pick stories thinking whether it would leave an impact on the society or not.

“We don’t do films thinking it will make an impact or not. If I get a good character and good story, then I decide whether to do it or not. If after doing any role, there is an impact in the society, then it’s great,” said the National Award winning actor.

His next project is YRF’s Thug’ with Aamir Khan. The megastar said that he is looking forward to that opportunity.

“There have been many attempts for us to work together, but we haven’t yet. So yes, I look forward to that opportunity. He is a great star and great actor. He has been ruling the box office and industry for a long time,” he said.

Big B says hurdles will come and go, but the film industry will always be alive.

“This is the film industry and this will be alive and going on. Such hurdles and problems will be coming, but the film industry will go on. The actors are blamed saying they have taken a lot of money and that’s why a film got flopped.

"That actor has the power to get the audience to come to theatres… Then if an actor is demanding more money, then what’s wrong in it? If the film doesn’t work, in the next film they get (paid) less,” added the actor, who has worked in Bollywood for over four decades and became popular as Hindi cinema’s Angry Young Man and Shahenshah.

On his birthday, Amitabh Bachchan unveiled a jukebox gifted to him by his fans. He said it is “precious and memorable” for him.

“A few years back, someone for Amsterdam had come and told me, ‘We make such things and we would like to make something for you’. I don’t know whether a jukebox will be there or not in the future but this gift is very memorable and precious to me. I will keep this in my office here,” Amitabh told the media at his office here on Tuesday morning.

On his birthday, he said that he hopes to learn to play new instruments and learn new languages.

“I can’t play any instruments, but we do have different instruments at our place and I want to learn to play different instruments. I want to learn different languages. I will take out time for that,” said the actor, whose energy and passion is incredible.
