Abhishek Bachchan washed dishes

by Raymond Ronamai

Do you think Bollywood actor Abhishek Bachchan will wash plates at home? I don’t think so. But, believe it or not, he washed dishes at the Golden Temple in Amritsar as part of his 'kar seva' recently.

The actor, who was with his sister Shweta Nanda in the city, visited three prominent gurdwaras. "Abhishek and Shweta meanwhile have had a most awesome and wonderful ‘darshan’ at the Golden Temple in Amritsar. They were allowed to spend almost an hour inside the complex and Abhishek even did some ‘kar seva’, by cleaning up the premise, and washing the dishes at the ‘langar’.

There were two other prominent gurudwaras that they visited and were ecstatic about their visit,” Amitabh Bachchan posted on his blog.

He went on to say that it feels good to see his children getting religious. “It is always such a joy to see children putting their minds to faith and devotion. Nothing would give me greater joy and nothing I believe could be better than their achievement in belief and prayer,” he wrote.

Abhishek, who was in Amritsar for the shooting of his reality show Bingo, also posted about his visit to the temple on his Twitter page. “Went to the Golden Temple at 3 in the morning. Did seva for about an hour, then just sat there listening to the kirtan,” he tweeted.

Amitabh had earlier written on his blog about his inclination towards his Sikh blood and his wish to visit the Golden Temple along with his children. It may be mentioned that Teji Bachchan, the mother of the 67-year-old actor, was from a Sikh family.
