Those who will be my heir, will be my sons). –Harivansh Rai Bachchan.” The actor further wrote, “Abhishek, tum mere uttradhikari hoge, bus keh diya to keh diya (You will be my heir. I have said it.).” Abhishek was quick to respond with, “Love you Pa, always and eternally an.”

Amitabh further reflected his feelings on his blog. “Such pride in the progeny, or as they call it humorously –my progress report! The greatest joy for a Father is to witness the achievements of his children .. to savour the glory they bring to his name .. to be in the recognition as the Father of Abhishek, rather the other way round .. and Abhishek sums it up for me .. I have given this example often through one of babuji’s poem on the ‘vasiyatnama’ the WILL of inheritance, that is written for the progeny on the passing of the elder ..one of the most prominent lines of the verse are: my sons will not be my inheritors my heir apparent, my successors, just because they are my sons; instead they that are my successors, my uttaradhikari’s, shall be my sons.”

“And with immense pride, I do say that Abhishek is my ‘uttaradhikaari’ ..his continued efforts, at attempting different and dare I say difficult roles, to portray, are not just a challenge, but a mirror shown to the world of cinema, on his ability as an actor and for them to assuage his credibility and tenacity! They that criticise and ridicule the inability of another, for their inadequacy on a subject, do so, because they themselves do not have the capacity or the ability for the adequacy of the subject,” he concluded.
