As things normalize, Amitabh Bachchan is keen to visit his ancestral village, Babu Patti, in the Pratapgarh district of Uttar Pradesh, where grandparents Pratap Narain and Saraswati Devi Srivastava lived.
He got nostalgic when Kaun Banega Crorepati contestant Ankita Singh’s UP-based uncle told him that Babu Patti was waiting to welcome him. The village has a library which is named after Big B’s father Harivansh Rai Bachchan, who was inaugurated by Jaya Bachchan and late assistant assistant at one point Amar Singh in 2006.
Amitabh Bachchan said he had recently discussed the idea of visiting Babu Patti with his family. He also expressed his wish to build a school for the village children.
Bhagwan Das Yadav, a local, says locals are now hopeful that Amitabh Bachchan will visit his ancestral village soon. “Our dreams of meeting the superstar can now be fulfilled. We are eagerly awaiting the announcement of his program,” he said.
