Megastar Amitabh Bachchan has paid tribute to Britain’s longest-reigning Queen Elizabeth II, who died on Thursday at the age of 96. Amitabh wrote on his blog, . And as we live another day, another’s life is over. Rani, has passed away. Queen of England. And many moments of his presence were remembered. He recalled how his father and the great poet Harivansh Rai Bachchan was in England at the time of the Queen’s coronation. Babuji was in England for his PhD when he was crowned and the coronation was the biggest event of the time. And news and books were sent to me in Allahabad at that time.
He further said, I shook hands with her when she was the state guest in India during my university days and it was a special moment between four or five of us at Rashtrapati Bhavan. A selected group of people invited to Buckingham Palace during Babuji’s stay at Cambridge when he was invited over tea with guests from other countries. Indian cricket team in particular – like Vinoo Mankad, and Hazare and others. And his autographs signed were sent to us on invitation cards from the Palace. Now all got lost on shifting from Allahabad to Delhi. Letters, books and objects of remembrance were all lost. Because never considered documentation or archiving. Now as you look back. Regrets and only regrets.
