If you ask anyone the must visits places in Mumbai, chances are very bright that the legendary Amitabh Bachchan‘s must be definitely one of the top three names in that list. That explains the hordes of visitors who queue up to get a ‘darshan’ (read ‘glimpse’) of this eternal superstar outside his iconic residence ‘Jalsa’ in Juhu.
The ever so concerned human being that Bachchan is recently took to his blog and told the visitors to be careful of the miscreants while coming to meet him outside his residence. In his own words, he wrote the following in his blog:
“The police contingent has been increased. Mischief makers too find their way inside and have been the cause of embarrassment to those that come, as also the cause for the loss of some of their personal belongings… so dear all do be careful.” He also added, “Walking out into the abyss that holds the presence of excited wishers. The Sunday that I eagerly await â€¦ and perhaps hopefully some among you do too. There is always an apprehension to be among them of perhaps the feeling that they may not acknowledge my presence. What then?? But the first roar of sight is reassuring and humbling. The rest takes over on its own, the wave the smiles the noticing of Ef among the multitudes, those in the front crushed by the pressure of those at the back ” women and children, who often are brought into the premises to safety and calm… mostly the little children that, overwhelmed by the scare of the crowds, cry out helplessly. They are looked after first… brought in and assured that their parents and elders are fine and shall get to see them soon. Poor little ones… they are so oblivious to the situationâ€¦ really â€¦ the elders should not subject them to this torture… but what can one say… they have come out for a Sunday breather on the beach at Juhu and this visit to Jalsa, happens because it comes in the route of the evening.”
Now, if that isn’t a making of a ‘Superstar’ that he is, then, nothing else in the world is!
