The video opens with a sequence from Amitabh’s 1982 film Khud- Daar, in which his character can be seen climbing a human pyramid to break the dahi handi, a common ritual on Janmashtami in Maharashtra. The song Mach Gaya Shor plays in the background during the sequence. The video then moves on to a scene from Happy New Year (2014) where Abhishek’s character does the same as Shah Rukh Khan, Sonu Sood and Boman Irani watch.
Amitabh’s daughter, Shweta Bachchan Nanda, responded to the video in the comments, writing, “Oh AB @bachchan, you made me laugh so much here.” One of his fans commented, “Bollywood king of Shahenshah.” Another fan wrote: “Happy Janmastami.” Many fans dropped heart emojis on the video. Some fans wrote comments saying “like father like son”, pointing out the identical sequences being decades apart.
Abhishek was last seen in the 2022 film Dasvi alongside Yami Gautam and Nimrat Kaur. He will reportedly appear in SSS 7, a remake of the 2019 Tamil film Oththa Seruppu Size 7. He will also return next year for the next season of his Prime Video web series Breathe: Into the Shadows.
Amitabh is currently awaiting the release of Brahmastra by Ayan Mukerji, which will also feature Alia Bhatt, Ranbir Kapoor, Nagarjuna and Mouni Roy. The movie will be released on September 9. He also has Goodbye in the pipeline, which also includes stars Rashmika Mandanna and Neena Gupta.
