Big B wants to write about father

Mumbai, Sep 15 (IANS) Megastar Amitabh Bachchan says there is a strong desire in him to focus his energy on “writing to the world” about his father and late poet Harivanshrai Bachchan’s literary works.

The star, who has made a special place in the world of showbiz in his over four decade career, noted that he will embark on the mission “someday”.

The 72-year-old cine icon seems to have immersed himself in the work of a website dedicated to his father’s legacy and his works. The “Piku” star experienced a pull towards penning his thoughts while going through his father’s work.

“I languish in lethargy these days…in the seeking of aloofness and the wealth and admiration of each letter written by my dear and loved father…of lamentation at his absence to teach educate and to explain his words in the context of his living.

“There is a desire to resign from life itself to dedicate whatever is left in the reading and writing to the rest of the world what his writing meant! It will someday…it will,” Big B posted on his official blog.

Harivanshrai, who died in 2003, is credited with works like “Madhushala” and “Agneepath”. The “Paa” actor is often seen seen reciting Harivanshrai’s poetry as well and has called him a “unique genius” on several occasions.
