Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan rues the way crowd misbehaved at the funeral of Rajesh Khanna on Thursday, showing, in his words, scant respect for the emotionally poignant situation.
Thousands of fans had gathered to bid adieu to Rajesh Khanna who died on Wednesday. But the crowd did get carried away in its enthusiasm and mobbed the Bollywood celebs who had joined the funeral procession to pay the last respects to the superstar.
“The funeral of Rajesh Khanna was poignant and crowded .. the crowds were in throngs,with scant respect for the situation .. pity!!” Amitabh Bachchan tweeted.
“For the crowds it is always a moment of an event to see so many stars assemble .. not one of respect to him that passed away ...” the actor added.
So strong was the presence of the crowd and so deadlocked the traffic jam, that Amitabh Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan walked from their residence Jalsa to the cremation ground. And during this walk of 400 meters they were almost mobbed.
