Amitabh regularly uses social media, sharing special moments of his family’s life with his fans. For example, he was a proud grandfather showing images of his granddaughter Aaradhya, celebrating her sixth birthday.
He also revealed family photos at a recent wedding, where Abhishek and Aishwarya were in attendance.
In addition, Amitabh posts daily messages on his Tumblr blog; a place where he offers his own reflections on life. On 11th December, he spoke on social media and the “race” to become most popular.
He also offers philosophical writings; a stark difference to other stars who show endless images of themselves.
Perhaps then this is why Amitabh has collected such a massive number of followers. From his social media feeds, one can easily see a sense of humility in the actor.
While he has witnessed such a staggering career in Bollywood, this clearly hasn’t affected his perspective on life.
Meanwhile, the actor is currently filming for Thugs of Hindostan. The film has recently begun scenes in Thailand, where Amitabh has selected as his location in recent blogs. He also shared images of himself walking to the set.
With more filming likely on the way for the Thugs of Hindostan actor, we can’t wait for future photos of the actor. Sharing more wonderful moments of his family and life.
