On the occasion of Amitabh’s birthday celebration every year, his temple usually carries at home yagya and puja. Devotees of the temple distribute bhog prasad and cut cakes on this day (October 11).

The custom has been intact since the temple was constructed in 2011. But this year it is not seen at the temple due to the Coronavirus situation. The temple built in the name of Big B is located in the Bondel gate near Baliganj of South Kolkata.

As the Bollywood actor celebrates his 78th birthday today, the founders of the temple have organized a virtual meeting in which Big B plans to join these loved ones. This category of its fans has been named the Extended Family by Big B.

This year, temple members are distributing 1,000 masks, 1,000 sanitizer bottles and drought rations to 200 people named after Bachchan.
