He said that he is proud of his surname as it does not belong to any religion, “My surname ‘Bachchan’ does not belong to any religion as my father was against it. My surname was Srivastava, but we never believed in it. I feel proud saying is that I’m the first person to hold this family name. When I was taking admission to Kindergarten, my father was asked my surname and then he decided that my surname would be ‘Bachchan’. When Census employees come to my place, they ask me about my religion and I always answer that I belong to no religion, I’m Indian.

Then Big B went on to share how Holi was celebrated at his home, he said that he has no shame in saying that his father respected the people around him. It was their tradition that a person during Holi puts colour on the feet of the eldest and the most highly respected man. His father, Harivansh Rai Bachchan used to put colors on the legs of the person who cleaned toilets before starting his celebration.

Well, Amitabh Bachchan has been an epitome of great values and a symbol of humanity and now we know where he gets that from.
