Amitabh Bachchan Felt Extremely Proud When Poland Decided to Name a Square After His Father
A day ago the Sholay actor shared a proud moment from his personal life. Poland decided to name a street in the city of Wroclaw after AB's father Harivansh Rai Bachchan. The superstar shared this news on his social media account and wrote, "प्रबिसि नगर कीजे सब काजा। हृदयँ राखि कोसलपुर राजा॥' .. ~ रामचरितमानस , सुंदर कांड भावार्थ अयोध्यापुरी के राजा श्री रघुनाथजी को हृदय में रखे हुए नगर में प्रवेश करके सब काम कीजिए। City of Wroclaw, Poland, to name a square after Babuji."
