Ishaan Khatter remembered how Amitabh Bachchan helped him enrol in a respectable school and even paid a visit to the principal.
On Tuesday, as Amitabh Bachchan celebrated his 80th birthday, several people in the entertainment business from various generations sent their best wishes and beautiful memories of the seasoned actor. Ishaan Khatter remembered how Amitabh had a significant influence on his life, something he wasn’t even conscious of for a very long time.
Ishaan Khatter revealed that Amitabh Bachchan helped him get into a reputable school when he was a young boy. Amitabh offered to help after learning that Ishaan’s mother, actor Neliima Azeem, was having trouble enrolling Ishaan in school while they were shooting together.
Ishaan stated, “Not many people are aware of this, but even before I was an actor, he did me a tremendous favour. I was admitted to my school because of him. At the time, he was co-working with my mother. Mr. Bachchan personally visited the administrators and the principal because admission to that school was extremely competitive. I didn’t learn about this until much later, when I was an adult. But how do you picture that? Amitabh Bachchan took that action in order for a child to receive a top-notch education.
Ishaan continued to praise Amitabh, saying, “Over twice as long as my entire existence, Bachchan Saab has been a cultural figure. In movies like Anand, Deewaar, and countless others, I have admired his work. He has continuously reinvented himself over the past 20 years while I’ve been monitoring his work, not just as a star but also as an actor. I can’t help but respect and admire him. Even just by watching him, there is so much to learn.”
On his Instagram page, Ishaan also wished Amitabh Bachchan a happy birthday. Happy birthday Amitji.. from a kid you once helped get into school, Ishaan tweeted alongside a photo of the actor from his 1975 movie Deewar. I didn’t understand this until I was older, and I had no idea that you would always be a part of my schooling. as a pupil of both reality and cinema.”
