This picture is a beautiful collage made of four pictures. While sharing, he captioned it with quite a big note, sharing his memory. In the picture, you can see a street painter making a live portrait of Amitabh. Jaya Bachchan and their friends were looking at them from a distance. In other pictures, the Bollywood couple along with Shweta and Abhishek take a critical look at the portrait. Amongst all this, Abhishek is looking quite amused. Amitabh has told us why he looks so amused saying, he thinks ‘my portrait being drawn all wrong’.

Amitabh also spoke with fondness about his years in Calcutta (now Kolkata) from 1962 – 1968, where his friends and he would frequently visit Park Street’s night club named Moulin Rouge. He also spoke how Moulin Rouge, the 1952 British film, starring Puerto Rican actor José Ferrer, had made this street in Paris famous. Today’s generations are more likely to remember it by the latest Hollywood film of the same name, made by director Baz Luhrmann.

Many people commented on this collage. Shweta Bachchan commented,  “Hahahaha look at AB’s face.” One user said: “Haha! What a priceless memory!” while another said, “Lifetime memories with the family.”
