Sharing details of the meeting, Amitabh wrote on his blog, “Sundays are special .. and today was even more so ..I contributed towards a just cause .. a visitor at the gates in the evening among the crowds .. a differently challenged young boy .. I asked him to be brought in, he was without speech and mobility but a determined poise of one that had refused to give up. It was joy to witness the joy on his face. I asked him what he needed, he tugged at his shirt… clothes. I gave him a bundle of my own. He extended his delicate hand, rough and strong, because that is what he uses to move about, and I arranged fro him to be dropped home. My people did so and reported he was homeless and lived on the pavement out side a high rise in the suburbs,” said the actor.
“Tearing oneself away from the formalities of celebrity is a task… I do not believe in it and never shall… others may wish to contribute and celebrate the tenure and so called ‘contribution’ to cinema from me. But that shall never happen. It shall remain a closed chapter … not to be opened ever,” Amitabh further said in the blog.
Meanwhile, on the work front, Amitabh is currently shooting for his upcoming film ‘Thugs Of Hindostan’.
