Mumbai. In a development that is set to shock Bollywood and Hollywood alike, Brad Pitt has surprisingly claimed that Big B was his long lost son. After watching promotional visuals of upcoming movie Paa, Brad claimed that Amitabh Button (the surname allegedly distorted by Indians) was his offspring – a result from his adventures on a sea-trip that he had made when he was a 15-year-old in the body of a 50-year-old.
“I had an affair with a swimmer of international fame. Our love bore a son, however I soon realized that I was getting younger with time, so I left my son under the care of his mother. The last I heard was that she was swimming across the Ganges trying to break some new world record, and while doing so she forgot our son at Allahabad, who was then raised by Indians.” said Brad, claiming that his genes were responsible for Big B’s latest looks in Paa.
Brad is now out to find Big B’s alleged original mother and to have DNA tests conducted to back his claim with official evidence. This has been an emotional moment for the Brangelina couple, who have been adopting kids of all nationalities. Angelina especially is so excited that she is believed to have said that in the event of Brad failing to track the swimmer-mother, she would voluntarily adopt Amitji and make him a part of her world family.
While the claim by Brad has been shot down by many experts as being a publicity stunt, there seem to be a growing clan of people who are ready to accept Brad’s claims on on the following three counts:
- The resemblance between surnames Button and Bachchan
- The fact that Big B’s physical appearance is inversely proportional to his mental attributes in Paa just like Brad in Benjamin Button
- The acting talent that runs in both the families
This has evoked mixed reactions in the Bachchan family. Abhishek has completely rejected the idea altogether, as he is least eager to be known as Abhishek Pitt. However, Aishwarya is already flirting with the idea of having Angelina as her grand-mom-in-law and becoming a part of Hollywood’s family number one as well. Aishwarya’s excitement was shared by Big B’s good friend and Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh, who too appeared all too excited to get the grandmotherly love of Angelina.
Big B’s wife and actress Jaya Bachchan declined to comment on the issue but journalists could extract a comment from Bollywood’s evergreen beauty Rekha, who rubbishing the Hollywood couple’s claim. Rekha reckons that it is Brad’s shameless attempt at getting listed as the sexiest grandfather alive, after having been recently dethroned as the sexiest man alive.
Amidst these mixed reactions from family members and friends, Big B himself is reeling under the effects of a complete loss of identity. The man once known for the famous dialogue “rishtey main to hum tumhaare baap lagte hain” is feeling the after effects of his own medicine. He has not yet put a blog post on the same.
Meanwhile, rumor has it that Karan Johar has already started on his new project –“Kabhi Bachchan, Kabhi Button – it’s all about loving your new family” – a sequel to Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham. Karan is confident that he’d not need to apologize to Raj Thackeray for his latest movie.
