#InstaStories: When Amitabh was hospitalised

September 04, 2017 14:54 IST

There's a story behind every picture.
Some of the stories are so lovely, they deserve their space in the sun.
In this series, InstaStories, we let pictures on social media tell their beautiful back stories.

Abhishek Bachchan posts some beautiful pictures with amazing stories behind him on Instagram.

He posted this throwback picture, and tells the story behind it: 'Taken in the mid 80's (1985 if memory serves). I call it Big B and the Bachchan bunch.

'Dad was hospitalised with Mysthenia Gravis and my sister, cousins and I had gone to visit him.'

'Being too young to understand what all was going on our parents always made it out to be like an outing so that we would not be disturbed by the hospital and its workings.'

'When I used to visit my father after his accident on the sets of "Coolie" in 1982, seeing him connected to many drips and machines, he used to tell me they were kites that he had got for me. I was 6 yrs old.'

'My father was fighting for his life and all I thought about was... why isn't he allowing me to play with these kites??? The innocence of childhood I guess.'
