BH CORRESPONDENT, Mumbai: Amitabh Bachchan is undoubtedly one of the most loved actors in the world. Who else would have hundreds of fans gathered at the gate of his house every Sunday for the last 40 years?
But something changed this Sunday as the veteran posted a message to his fans to not gather at the gates of his house Jalsa as he would not come for their weekly meet. He ended the message by telling his fans to take precautions and be safe.
His tweet read, “T 3470 – To all Ef and well wishers an earnest request !PLEASE DO NOT COME TO JALSA GATE TODAY .. SUNDAY MEET am not going to come ! Take PRECAUTIONS .. be safe”. He also repeated the message in Hindi.
T 3470 – To all Ef and well wishers an earnest request !PLEASE DO NOT COME TO JALSA GATE TODAY .. SUNDAY MEET am not going to come !
Take PRECAUTIONS .. be safe

This step taken by Big B, which resulted in a break in the unique tradition that he shares with fans, is clearly in the wake of the deadly coronavirus which has gripped the world and also now our country. There are 107 confirmed cases in India and two deaths.
Amitabh had also recently composed a poem in the Awadhi dialect on coronavirus, through which he advised people to stay safe.
Quite a few weeks earlier, Big B had shared collage on Instagram of the Sunday gatherings in front of his house in Mumbai.
