Amitabh Bachchan is one of the most rich people in the country. It is amazing how he has even bounced back after suffering losses in the 90s. His persona, his richness, his personality and acting is famous worldwide and it can be said that the Bachchan family is one of the royal families in Bollywood. But do you know, Amitabh Bachchan has a relative who lives in extreme poverty. Yes, his name is Anup Ramchandra.
Living with his wife Mridula in extreme poverty, he can’t manage to have two times meal for his family of four people- wife, one son and one daughter. He is the son of Amitabh’s father’s sister, Bhagwandayi. She had four sons and Anup is the 3rd son. The family is facing financial hardships to such an extent that once in an interview, Mridula stated that she fears that the Bachchan family would not even recognize them.
Anup works as an electrical fitter and his immensely low income is the only source to feed his family. They live in Katghar in an ancestral house of Dr.Harivansh Rai Bachchan.
It is reported that Anup and Amitabh had a tiff over the fact that Anup requested Amitabh to convert the ancestral house into a museum to keep Di. Harivansh Rai Bachchan’s memories alive and accessed to his fans. Amitabh didn’t agree to the proposition.
Its surprising how the Bachchan family that served meal to the baratis at Isha Ambani’s wedding, can’t help a close relative in need?
