In July, the actor had shared an Instagram video showing students at Wroclaw University paying tribute to his father by reciting a few lines from the renowned poem “Madhushala”.

Alongside the clip, Big B had written: “Last year the Mayor of Wroclaw declared me as the Ambassador of the City of Wroclaw, in Poland… Today they organised a recitation of my Babuji’s Madhushala by the University students on the roof of the University building. As Wroclaw was awarded the title of a UNESCO City of Literature, they could pass on the message to Babu Ji’s lovers from all around the world – Wroclaw is a City of Dr Harivansh Rai Bachchan. Moved beyond emotion .. thank you Wroclaw .. in this time of my trial it brings so much cheer to me.” Bachchan is currently seen on television, hosting the popular quiz show, “Kaun Banega Crorepati 12”.
