With the recent release of the ‘Dasvi’ trailer, Bollywood actor Abhishek Bachchan has been garnering immense praise for his performance in it and seems like his father Amitabh Bachchan is his newest admirer. The megastar, on Thursday, shared an appreciation tweet for Abhishek in which he expressed that his son has proved to be a fitting ‘uttaradhikaari’.
Sharing the link for the trailer of ‘Dasvi’, Amitabh quoted his father, writer-poet Harivansh Rai Bachchan, and wrote, “Mere bete, bete hone se tum mere uttradhikari nahi hoge. Jo mere uttradhikari honge, wo mere bete honge – Harivansh Rai Bachchan. Abhishek, tum mere uttradhikari hoge, bus keh diya to keh diya.” Responding to his father’s appreciation of him on Twitter, Abhishek wrote, “Love you Pa, always and eternally.”
