Now just proud of his own achievements, Amitabh Bachchan has often talked about his respect and love for his father Harivansh Rai Bachchan's poetry.

Apart from Big B's iconic song 'Rang Barse' and 'Agnipath' which was penned by his father, he is often seen reciting lines or quoting his father's numerous poems on social media and on stage. So it's no surprise that Big B is angry about the possibility of losing his father's works. Bachchan senior took to his blog to pour out his frustration over the matter and called it 'rubbish'. 

He wrote, "I believe it initiated in 1957 or so .. and am angered by its audacity ! So what gets left as natural heir by father Dr Harivansh Rai Bachchan, after his passing passed 60 years, belongs no longer to his domain or possessive copyright as willed... but becomes for the entire universe to tread, scratch, mutilate, use in commercial consideration on their own creative discretion...??? Rubbish..! I oppose, disagree, lament, dispute, be in variance of, in vehement loud screams of voice.. ever"

He reminded everyone that after 60 years after Harivansh Rai Bachchan passed away, he is the heir and no one else. "My inheritance be mine.. not another’s after the passing of its stipulated time in years .. 60 .. I am genetically my father’s son .. he be willed to me of all that be in asset of his .. his writings be his .. his heir be me .. his writings be mine .. MINE ! I shall not and will not allow its dilution to general public .."

He concluded his angst and wrote, 'I fight for it'.

On work front, Amitabh Bachchan will be seen 102 Not Out, Brahmastra and Thugs of Hindostan.
