“47 years of my life in this city of Mumbai that gave me all that I possess now, that engulfed me in its warm and affectionate embrace, nurtured me, protected me, pushed me, kicked me, reprimanded me, raised me to heights and crushed me with my falls, allowed me to make a beginning with the first film in profession,” Big B wrote on his blog.
On the work front, Amitabh is currently gearing up for working with superstar Aamir in the upcoming film Thug.
