Megastar Amitabh Bachchan is known for keeping his fans and followers entertained via his social media posts as well. The veteran actor had recently shared a poem attributing to his legendary poet father Harivansh Rai Bachchan. However, the poem was actually penned by lyricist Prasoon Joshi. Realising his mistake, Big B took to his Twitter handle and issued an apology.

On Wednesday night, Big B had shared a poem ‘Akelepan Ka Bal Pehchaan’ and credited it to his late father Harivansh Rai Bachchan. However, on Thursday he tweeted an apology saying, “Yesterday, the poem posted by me on T-3617 was not written by my father. That was incorrect. The poem was written by Prasoon Joshi. I apologise for the error)”

Along with the tweet he shared the entire poem penned by Prasoon Joshi.

The veteran actor recently returned home after recovering from the deadly Coronavirus. However, his son Abhishek Bachchan is yet to recover from Covid-19 and he is still recuperating in the hospital.

Earlier Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Aaradhya too were discharged from hospital after testing negative for Covid-19. They all are now waiting for Abhishek to return home soon.
