Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan revealed his Holi plans on his blog on Sunday (March 16).
While Bollywood celebrities are gearing up to play the festival of colours, holi and are wishing their fans best wishes for the festival of colours, Big B plans to go low scale on the celebrations.
Big B says that there have been certain ‘ill moments’ in the year, which still continue and therefore the celebrations will be low. Besides, Holi this year coincides with his daughter Shweta’s birthday, and therefore Amitabh Bachchan will be with her in Delhi.
Amitabh Bachchan wrote, “Holi is on the 17th .. Shweta’s Birthday and we shall be with her … so am not going to celebrate … there have been certain ill moments in the year and they still continue .. when there is mourning in the family festivals are put away, traditionally .. and so… Each year we hope that there is joy and happiness around .. and I do hope this year is one such ..”
Big B elaborated, “We do not celebrate it again … there have been discomforting news for the year, the passing away of relations distant, of long months of struggle against illness .. it would be disrespectful to be immersed in the colours of abandon and joy when some among us mourn ..”
