|Dr. Amitabh Bachchan|| |
| Times of India: Amitabh Bachchan refuses to be called as Dr. B and in doing so, he gains my admiration.|
I say so, because in the rotten sycophant society of India it has become very common to decorate actors and actresses with honorary doctorates, and worse, refer to them as Dr. So-and-so. It has reached the point of being distasteful, and I find the practice insulting to the scientists and scholars who devote decades in academic studies.
Amitabh says that in his mind, Dr. Bachchan will always be his dad, noted poet Harivansh Rai Bachchan.
Here's a picture of Bachchan Sr. You can't miss the resemblance.
