Mumbai, Jan 5 (IANS) Megastar Amitabh Bachchan’s tradition of greeting his fans at his doorstep almost every Sunday morning has survived yet another year. The actor says now he has increased security to stop “mischief makers” from entering inside.
“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,” the 72-year-old posted on his official blog srbachchan.tumblr.com Monday.
The actor, who lives with his family in a bungalow named Jalsa here, also pointed out how women and children in the crowd were brought inside his premises for their safety.
“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 situation. Really… 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,” he added.
Meanwhile, the actor is all set for a bevy of upcoming films like “Piku”, “Wazir” and “Shamitabh” in the New Year.
