Beti B comes first for Amitabh Bachchan

Amitabh Bachchan stays put in Mumbai. Delays trip to Nashik until after granddaughter’s naming ceremony

Amitabh Bachchan was to visit Nashik to inaugurate an old age home there. He even blogged about it, saying he was looking forward to the visit. That trip has now been postponed and he will only head out after his granddaughter’s naming ceremony sometime post January 14. Big B was to visit Nashik at top cop and ‘long time associate and very dedicated friend’ Harish Baijal’s invitation.

The old age home, Nanasaheb Deshmukh Vridhashram run by Neptune Foundation, is a free facility for elderly citizens. Sachin Deshmukh, a builder in Mumbai, is the prime force behind this initiative. He says, “I have an emotional connect with this place and named it after my grandfather. We do not need any donations but want people to come and spend time with the old people and do some seva. Harish is a friend and Big B’s ‘touch’ will create awareness and inspire other people to do seva.”

Baijal says Bachchan Sr informed him “on Tuesday evening” that the inauguration would have to wait as his daughter Shweta Nanda had come over with her children. Also, “Abhishek and Aishwarya’s daughter’s naming ceremony would take place soon.”

Not the first time This isn’t the first time Big B has joined hands with Baijal in his charitable initiatives. At a deaf-and-dumb school named Vikas Mandir in Nashik, the actor donated many computers for the children studying there.
