While family and fans are determined to celebrate the mighty Amitabh Bachchan’s 75th birthday on October 11, there are to be no celebrations this time around. Despite the hopes that there will be suitable fanfare, the cynosure of all eyes, Big B himself, remains insistent that there won’t be any birthday celebration.

When contacted, Amitabh said, “Such a waste of time, and unnecessary fuss over my 75 years.”

 

Not only are there to be no celebrations, he will skip media interactions too this year.

Every year he sportingly indulges his fans, friends, family and journalists, but a name close to Big B explains the reason behind this move. “With all that is happening around us — the killings, the scams, the scandals and controversies — he has lost the will to celebrate anything, let alone his birthday,” says the member of the Bachchan parivaar. “We will have a very low-key Diwali celebration too this year.”
