Big B misses his parents on his birthday

Though Megastar Amitabh Bachchan was surrounded by his family on his 67 birthday, even then he missed his parents on this special day. He remembered the days he spent with his parents and how enthusiastic he used to be on celebrating birthday during younger days.

“My parents are not there. I miss them on this day but their soul, memories and blessings are very much with me,” an emotional Big B remarked.

“They used to celebrate my birthday in a grand way. As a child I was very much excited about birthdays as all family members and friends used to come home with gifts, which were a great source of attraction for me,” Bachchan said walking down the memory lane.

“But now, those days are no more and we have grown old. Now, for me being with family on my birthday means a lot. I will celebrate my birthday with my family. I am happy when family gets together,” the megastar said after unveiling of first look of his upcoming movie `Rann`.

“When they (Teji and Harivanshrai Bachchan) were there I used to get encouragement. It is important to have an elderly person in the family who can handle and look after everything. Now I am the elder person and I want to set an example before my family by doing and giving them the best things," he added.

Amitabh is an icon and he is an inspiration for millions. Fans love him not only for his acting but for his down to earth nature. Prateeksha and Jalsa was flooded with well-wishers to wish the legends on his birthday.
