Megastar Amitabh Bachchan considers his work as a prayer, and therefore believes that prayers scare him. “Belief and prayer come so intrinsically close to each other… And the power of them both percolates all else… The strength driving millions to its existence and its marvels… The sincerity paving the way for generations,” wrote Amitabh Bachchan on his blog as he spoke about Chhath Puja.
“I tend to acknowledge my work… It could be a prayer too… Though many a times my prayers go wrong… They scare me… Make me diffident and unacquainted with the reality of it… But my work is of fiction and make belief… Prayer is not.”
“I would ride with prayer if confronted with options… Provided my belief in my work is worthy of it. There is doubt and apprehension every moment and then there is the result that defies it all,” he added.
Meanwhile, Amitabh Bachchan is gripped in a land legal case for alleged illegal construction, however, his legal team issued a statement mentioning, “Our Client has purchased a property in Oberoi Seven from M/s. Oberoi Realty Limited, vide Agreement dated 29th October 2012, registered before the Sub Registrar of Assurances on 2nd November, 2012. The property was purchased as a bare shell and Our Client has neither put any brick nor taken out any brick from the said property, hence the question of illegal construction does not arise. Further, Our Client is informed that the plans submitted by some other members of the society in respect of the repairs carried out by them have been approved by MCGM.”
