MID-DAY (August 8, 2017)

Amitabh Bachchan says he does not want people to organise any special event for his 75th birthday. The veteran actor turns a year older on October 11.

“Many threaten and plan a 75th celebration for my birthday. May it be known that there shall be no such event, allowed or even acknowledged,” Bachchan posted on his blog yesterday.

“May it also be known that if there is such move by others, they must withdraw from it for I shall never acknowledge or endorse such.  Be it family or extended family or any other. It is not going to be with any consent,” he wrote.

Big B said if his wishes were not respected, he would end up going to “some isolated unknown location which shall never be known by any.”

In  2012, for Bachchan’s 70th birthday celebrations, a big bash was organised at Reliance Mediaworks in Film City, Goregaon. The who’s who of Bollywood had turned up for the event.
