Superstar Amitabh Bachchan, who turned 64 on Wednesday, received a


inscribed with a poem his father Harivanshrai had written when the actor was born.

The white Sherwani (a long coat-like garment) was presented to Amitabh at his bungalow "Jalsa" in suburban Andheri by a fan and photographer Pradeep Chandra who has authored the coffee table book AB the Legend, A Photographer's Tribute.

"This specially designed Sherwani is not so formal and has a round neck collar with words A&B written in Hindi painted in black and silver," Pradeep Chandra said.

Chandra plans to launch a special range of linen with pictures of AB to be photographed by him in the coming months.

Asked what made him do it, he said "this is just a continuation of my tribute to the man I adore and would continue to do things on Amitabh in whatever creative manner I can."
