Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who is shooting for R Balki’s ‘Shamitabh’ in Madh Island, Mumbai, has been missing family time spent with his brother Ajitabh Bachchan and his family at the same place.
Senior Bachchan posted on his official blog how he with his family members including his brother’s family would come to Madh Island to spend weekends but would end up staying back for months.
“The shoot for Balki .. for SHAMITABH .. at Madh Island, once an isolated picnic spot, now inhabited by the overflowing metropolis .. we would come here to spend week ends .. even had a little cottage by the sea .. where on an occasion the entire family of 12 of us, my brother’s and mine, came for a week end and stayed back for 3 months … operating from this little one and a half bedroom roof .. but what fun !!” wrote Big B.
The actor who was last seen in ‘Bhoothnath Returns’ also regretted giving up his little property at the Island as the prices for land have gone up there. “The kids went to school from here and I to my shoots .. we gave up that place … really stupid of us … the prices have gone crazy now for even a square yard of land .. !! One investment that always needs to be kept alive .. land appreciates in value .,” said Big B.
