Amitabh Bachchan got a rather peculiar gift from PETA on his birthday on Thursday. A bullock that was rescued from hard labour was named Vijay after the numerous namesake characters that Big B has played in films.
We don’t need to tell you how strictly vegetarian Amitabh Bachchan has been for years and has even been adjudged the Hottest Vegetarian Celebrity for three years by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) India. So it was quite a befitting honour to name a bullock after the actor’s most popular screen name Vijay.
The said bullock was rescued from the drudgery of incessant labour by the organization Animal Rahat. Vijay the bullock now has a new lease of life.
Meanwhile, Amitabh Bachchan had a super rocking party hosted by wife Jaya Bachchan on Wednesday evening, followed by private celebrations on Thursday.
This was his first reaction after the big birthday bash.
“Kindness, grace affection a warm smile put together and shaken, can prove to be the most potent love potion...I am drenched in it! Genuine affection can never be hidden ... give it once and experience the results... its no storm or cyclone, its a space emission!”
On his birthday, the superstar had a busy day. He attended an event at 7 Hills Hospital and in the evening made time for B-Seventy art show that showcased the art works of 70 of India's leading artists.
