Amitabh Bachchan reveals the reason behind his Sunday ritual of waving out to fans

10-03-2015

Any hardcore Amitabh Bachchan fan will tell you about the superstar's weekly ritual of greeting his fans outside his Prateeksha bungalow every Sunday. In fact, it is common for tourists to head to Juhu on Sunday evenings simply to catch a glimpse of Big B who unfailingly puts in an appearance if he is in town. And this custom has been going on for so long that few people now the reason behind what started it.

At a recent Rotary event, Amitabh Bachchan spoke about this ritual and revealed that it began way back in 1982 when he had sustained a near fatal injury while shooting for Coolie. Big B had to undergo a series of medical procedures and at one point it was doubtful whether he would survive. That's when fans took to standing outside his house and they finally caught a glimpse of him after he recovered and came outside to greet them.

Since then it seems to have become an unspoken ritual for fans to turn up outside his house ever Sunday. Bachchan steps out and meets them and even signs a few autographs. Till this day, he sincerely believes that he recovered back then only due to the prayers and love of his fans. He said, “If I am sitting here if front of you, they are the ones who are responsible for it.”

We all know what a gracious and humble man Big B really is and this video simply proves it all the more. You can check out the video below and let us know what you think!
