Amitabh Bachchan to give Holi a missMarch 8th, 2009 - 9:42 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, March 8 (IANS) Bollywood star Amitabh Bachchan has announced he will refrain from Holi celebrations in remembrance of the 26/11 Mumbai terror attack victims.
“Holi, the festival of colour and rejoicing, and music and dance, is around the corner. It was one festival that we enjoyed liberally… We have not done that for several years… this Holi will also be given the miss,” Amitabh posted on his blog www.bigb.bigadda.com Saturday.
“That joyous spirit has been dampened by the atrocities that our city faced on 26/11. In its wake, somewhere inside us there is a reluctance to involve ourselves in any kind of exhibition,” he added.
