Amitabh Bachchan calls son Abhishek Bachchan his 'Uttaradhikaari', pens a heartfelt note
Proud father Amitabh Bachchan has declared his son Abhishek Bachchan as his successor after watching Dasvi trailer.
Impressed by son Abhishek Bachchan’s work in the trailer of Dasvi, Amitabh Bachchan on Wednesday shared a blog post announcing him as his ‘Uttaradhikaari’(successor). The legendary actor expressed his ‘greatest joy' of witnessing his son's achievements and elaborated on how proud he felt for him.
Taking to his Blogspot, he wrote, "Such pride in the progeny, or as they call it humorously --my progress report! The greatest joy for a Father is to witness the achievements of his children .. to savour the glory they bring to his name .. to be in the recognition as the Father of Abhishek, rather the other way round .. and Abhishek sums it up for me .. “
Further, he quoted his late father Harivansh Rai Bachchan’s poem and declared Abhishek his heir. “I have given this example often through one of babuji’s poem on the ‘vasiyatnama’ the WILL of inheritance, that is written for the progeny on the passing of the elder ..one of the most prominent lines of the verse are: my sons will not be my inheritors my heir apparent, my successors, just because they are my sons; instead they that are my successors, my uttaradhikari’s, shall be my sons."
On Twitter, the proud father wrote,” Mere bete, bete hone se tum mere uttradhikari nahi hoge. Jo mere uttradhikari honge, wo mere bete honge (My son, you won't become my heir by virtue of being my son. Those who will be my heir, will be my sons). --Harivansh Rai Bachchan. Abhishek, tum mere uttradhikari hoge, bus keh diya to keh diya (You will be my heir. I have said it.)." Quickly after Abhishek responded with "Love you Pa, always and eternally an."
The megastar also heaped praises for his son on Instagram and wrote an appreciation note that read, "The Pride of a Father..in film after film he surprises all with the incredible portrayal of totally different characters..its PHENOMENAL to be able to do that so successfully!!!"
Meanwhile, the first trailer of Abhishek starrer Dasvi was unveiled on Wednesday and is being widely appreciated. Directed by Tushar Jalota, the film also features Yami Gautam and Nimrat Kaur and is set for digital release on Netflix and Jiocinemas on April 7, 2022.
