Superstar Amitabh Bachchan speaks about the Bachchan family legacy
Amitabh Bachchan has shocked all his fans by saying that he is leaving no legacy in Bollywood. Bachchan is one of the most senior actors in Bollywood who is regarded as a living legend.
“It is coming on to 50 years in public life… That is as far as I am personally concerned… But I have been in the public life from the day I was born. I was always the son of Dr Harivansh Rai Bachchan, eminent poet and litterateur, him having a public presence far greater than mine,” Amitabh said in an interview. “I have no legacy… My father’s legacy is what I am interested in and I shall try always to further it,” Amitabh Bachchan told IANS.
When asked about how Harivansh Rai Bachchan's "legacy" is being passed on to the younger generations of the Bachchan family, Big B told IANS, "These are family oriented. Each family has their own conduct and behaviour, and they are executed in a manner where the next generation continues the legacy of the past. One prays and hopes that this temperament continues for posterity too."
