Pic: Amitabh plants Gulmohar sapling after becoming Covid-19 free


After becoming Covid-19 free, megastar Amitabh Bachchan is seen at the premises of his bungalow, Prateeksha planting sapling of Gulmohar tree which was uprooted months ago. The actor planted the sapling on his mother Teji Bachcchan’s birth anniversary.

The ‘Paa’ actor shared few photos in which she is seen wearing a tracksuit, a mask and a beanie.
