We did family tree in our house today and it went like this…..
Child#1: Amma who is Amithab Bachan?
Me: He is an actor. He has acted in many Hindi movies.
Child#1: How do you spell his name?
Me: A.M.I.T.H.A.B B.A.C.H.A.N
Child#1: I thought A.B.H.I.S.H.A.B B.A.C.H.A.N because she(child#2) says something like that.
Child#2: No. I say A.B.H.I.S.H.E.K B.A.C.H.A.N.
Me: Abishek Bachan is Amithab Bachan’s son. He acts in movies too.
Child#2: Noooooo. That is a boy in my bus. His name is Abhishek, but every one calls him Abhishek Bachan.
Me: Errrrrrr, that’s because they are likening him to the movie star Abhishek and probably teasing him.
<Child#1, Child#2: Still trying to figure out the joke in this>
Me: Ok, you will know this. Abishek Bachan is married to Aishawarya Rai. Amithab Bachan is Aishwarya’s father-in-law.
Child#1, Child#2: Oh! So the Bachans are some one famous then?!!!
