Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan has said that he would be a failure if he couldn’t preserve his father Harusvansh Rai Bachchan’s works. Big B took to his blog on Friday and talked about his poet father’s work, The Statesman.
He wrote, “Poetry needs understanding the mind of the poet. Believing his nerve, his pulse, his every pore, his breath. It’s not an easy task. At times, an impossible task, for we shall never exactly know what gave them the reason to put to thought what they did even if they are your own blood”.
Big B further added, “In the absence of my father, my responsibility rises even greater. Not just for its justice, but for its preservation for posterity and life. I shall fail as a son if I did not accomplish this, and I would never want to fail in his eyes. I shall never be able to fill his exalted mind, but even the minutest effort would give me the smallest of beliefs in his greatness and acclaim and his renown.”
“I shall be forgotten in a year or two, but Dr Harivansh Rai Bachchan shall be remembered and known for a 1000 and more till eternity,” he wrote.
On the work front, Amitabh Bachchan is currently shooting for Ayan Mukerji’s Brahmastra and gearing up for the 10th season of Kaun Banega Crorepati.
