When Abhishek Bachchan met Ray in Calcutta: I played a lot in his chair [Throwback]

Abhishek Bachchan is one of the lucky actors who got a chance to see Satyajit Ray, the cultural icon of Indian cinema. He was young and he did not know that he was in the presence of a Buddhist in the Indian film world.


“My first memories of Kolkata are very memorable for me. I remember it was when we were going to Assam with my father in the 80’s. There were no direct flights in those days so we had to transit through Kolkata and I wanted to see Victoria Memorial and Howrah Bridge, instead, he I was taken to this very busy street and this house where we had to walk I don’t know how many stairs and I was complaining and we went to the house of this gentleman who was sitting there playing chess.We were surrounded by movie posters, and I was like this guy And he’s a great Ray. You don’t know the glory you were sitting in front of as a five-year-old six-year-old. HE was very loving and I had a great time with him. He had a chair that was like a feather and they lifted him up. I walked because I couldn’t climb the stairs. I remember playing a lot in the chair. So that was the first memory of Kolkata, “said Abhishek Bachchan at the India Today Conclave. No.

Abhishek Bachchan was last seen in the 2018 film Manmarjiyan, where he shared the screen with Vicky Kaushal and Tapsi Pannu. The film was directed by Anurag Kashyap. Her father Amitabh Bachchan will soon be seen in Rose Sitabo, which will be released on Amazon Prime Video. The movie was expected to be released in theaters, however, due to the worldwide so-called coronavirus lockdown, the producers chose to release it directly on their OTT platform.
