Amitabh Bachchan recently shared a heartwarming anecdote on his blog. The actor recalled his encounter with a young girl who was selling roses on the rain-soaked streets of Mumbai and how he helped her.
The veteran actor shared that when the partially drenched girl walked towards his car, he generously handed her some money without bothering to even count it.
Big B wrote in blog, “She stood there, a little one, half drenched in the heavy downpour a while before, a small bunch of red roses, worn out by rain and time, wrapped in rough paper plastic, moving from car window to car window at the traffic stop .. an expectation for the sale to feed herself and perhaps a few other small in her family .. on her soft weather-worn face.”
“In a while as she got disinterested rebuttals from the cars ahead .. I was seeing her .. I beckoned her .. the Police cop car in security behind gave warning signals to her .. do not approach .. she backed off for a while .. then when she noticed I was calling her .. she expressed apprehension to both the Police and then the window on mine that I was lowering for her," he added.
He shared, “I looked at her sad but filled with a face that wondered for her what lay in store .. I did not ask what the roses cost .. just gave her some money .. did not see or count what it was .. was it really necessary to do so, NO .. she hesitatingly took the money .. handed the bouquet equally hesitant .. wondering whether I would negotiate .. I told her that’s it .. go.”
Big B concluded his blog by saying, “I have nothing more to say on this Blog but to express the face of that little one on getting a reward of feeding not just herself, but perhaps many more of her family .. for days perhaps .. The face of hunger being taken care of .. the face of fulfilment .. the face of, is this really happening to me .. the face of wanting to rush to the rest of the family to share her exuberance and joy.”
Meanwhile, on the work front, Big B is currently shooting for his upcoming film Project K, co-starring Prabhas, Kamal Haasan, and Deepika Padukone. The makers announced that the film will release in theatres on 12 January 2024.
