Veteran Bollywood star Amitabh Bachchan Thursday shared a letter written by his son Abhishek decades ago, when he was away on a long shoot away from home.
The handwritten note, addressed to "Darling Papa", has Abhishek inquiring about his father's well being, stressing about his prayer so that his father smiles, and hopes that the actor will be home soon.
With a Hindi idiom, Amitabh took a little jibe at his son, saying, "Abhishek in his glory".

Really Touching letter. Kids wants parents to be always with them. But, for kids and family we have to go outside to fulfill their needs.
