Megastar Amitabh Bachchan who known as the living legend of Bollywood, will not be celebrating his 75th birthday this year which falls on October 11. The actor, who has given us blockbusters like Sholay, Zanjeer, Deewar, Agnipath and many more, says he won’t allow, acknowledge or endorse any celebration for his milestone birthday. The Shahensha of Bollywood took to twitter and other social media platforms to say that there will be no birthday celebrations taking place anywhere. In another tweet, he said that he will not be celebrating Diwali this year. While the actor did not give any reasons for it, his daughter-in-law, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan lost her father in March and many are calling that to be a reason.

On his blog, he wrote, “Many threaten and plan a 75th celebration for my birth. May it be known that there shall be no such event, allowed or even acknowledged. May it be known that if there is such move by others, they must withdraw from it for I shall never acknowledge or endorse it? Be it family or (extended family) or any other, it is not going to be with any consent. It shall only drive me to some isolated unknown location which shall never be known by any.” The actor will be turning 75 on October 11.
