Amitabh Bachchan's mother Teji Bachchan passed away on Friday. She was 93.

She had been ailing for over a year, and was admitted at Lilavati hospital in Bandra, a western suburb of Mumbai. In November, she was shifted to the Intensive Care Unit of the hospital after her condition became serious.

Amitabh [Images] was very close to his mother and she was a pillar of support for the Bachchan family. One of the first things Abhishek Bachchan [Images] and Aishwarya Rai [Images] did after they got married was visit her at the hospital.

Teji Bachchan was an important part of the Big B's [Images] professional life as well. For instance, in the original script of Coolie, Amitabh's character was supposed to die. But she requested director Manmohan Desai to change the ending.
