Mumbai, Sep 16: The five serial blasts which rocked Delhi wrought distress to more than 100 families. It may have been the same for Bachchan family too. But, thanks to traffic jams (yes, you heard right) Chhota B was saved from disaster. A traffic jam on way to Connaught Place may have saved Bollywood actor Abhishek Bachchan from Saturday, Sep 13 bomb blasts.
"Abhishek was on his way to Connaught Palace for a function he had to attend. Minutes away from there, the traffic became a snarl and he knew he would not make it in time so he asked to turn back. And the blast happened just then. Shattered and shocked, he called to say he was alright," Amitabh Bachchan wrote on his blog.
He said he was in pain and anguish thinking about the innocent unaware victims who bore the brunt of the blasts.
The actor wondered if producers of Delhi 6 would continue with the shooting in wake of the blasts. "Abhishek has to shoot for the last few shots of the film. He has left the decision to the producers. Cancelling would be interpreted as succumbing to the threat," the Big B said.
"We live in difficult times. What kind of an environment are we leaving behind for our next generation? Or do we not concern ourselves with that? We need peace and harmony. Such wonderful words easy to type on a computer. So difficult to achieve," he said.
