Bollywood superstar visits temples very often, but of late, he is more drawn towards Sikhism, the faith of his mother Teji Bachchan, who was a Sikh family. He has a deep desire to visit the Golden Temple along with his children Abhishek Bachchan and Shweta.
“Abhishek shoots Bingo in the Holy City of Amritsar and his sister Shweta joins him to pay homage and prayer at the Harmandir Saheb. I wish I could do the same, but am unable to. Soon however I shall find the time. Or as they say in such situations, when the time comes He will call you and providence shall make the right moves and ways to permit us to do so," he wrote in his blog.
He said that his Sikh blood is reckoning him. “The Sikh blood in me beckons and I must honor it. It is rather strange, but in the last few months, my attraction and interest towards my Sikh links, attain some prominence and I feel drawn towards it. Two lockets of Guru Nanak ji, Sacche Padsha, are constant on my neck - one a gift from Guddi Behenji my cousin, daughter of my Mother"s elder sister Gobind Masi ji and the other I found as a gift to me that was lying on my desk unnoticed. Now they both adorn my neck," he continued on his blog.
Surprisingly, he doesn"t forget to seek blessings from the Sikh gurus. “Raj Kanwar, one of Abhishek"s early directors, had presented me with a photograph of all the Guruji"s and they now are with me at my place of worship. I seek blessings from them each morning - 'Sat Naam Wahe Guru", I recite, as I touch their images and a strange sense of fulfillment and strength consumes me," he wrote.
