Amitabh Bachchan remembers special gift from MF Hussain
The renowned Indian painter Maqbool Fida Hussain passed away in London on Thursday at the age of 95. Hussain who started out painting billboards for films, had a deep connection with Indian film industry all through his career as a painter.

Amitabh Bachchan was among the first ones to express his grief.

“MF Hussain, artist, painter, friend ... passes away ! Sad, very sad! Many of his works and gifts adorn my home..Hussain's best painting gift to me..a Hanuman with 'jadi buti' flying .. given to me in Breach Candy Hospital, during Coolie episode. Another special painting he did for me .. translated my poem I wrote in Hospital, on canvas ... very special and most endearing !!” Amitabh Bachchan wrote on the micro-blogging site Twitter.

Celina Jaitley wrote on her Twitter page: My God what a tragic loss..Hussein saab is no more..I met him last in Dubai at the emirates towers some months ago ..just cannot believe it.

Rahul Bose did raise the point that Hussain had to live the last years of his life in exile. He tweeted: Hussain passes away. we hang our heads partly in grief and partly in shame for not being able to let him spend his last days in this country.
