Bachchan, 67, is leaving no stone unturned to ensure that the film's premiere tonight is a resounding success and has invited a host of Bollywood celebrities including names like Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan, Akshay, Hrithik Roshan, Ajay Devgn, Anil Kapoor and Ranbir Kapoor, Hemamalini, Jeetendra, Sunny Deol and Bobby Deol.
"Dilip Saheb is unwell as are Shammiji, Shashiji and Dharamji...but speaking to them after such a while was a joy and an accomplishment in itself," Bachchan wrote about his phone conversation with the veterans ahead of the event.
"Dilip Saheb gave his characteristic laugh when I told him I was playing Abhishek's son...I would keep a separate trial for him where he does not have to worry about the crowd and the rush of the media," said Bachchan, who plays a 13-year-old child suffering from progeria in the movie, releasing tomorrow.
"Sunny and Bobby confirm they shall be there. Vinod Khanna calls in sends wishes for success. Hemaji acknowledges and will be there as will Jeetendra...and the list goes on," he added.
