Actor Amitabh Bachchan recently shared a picture of himself a day after visiting the Ram temple in Ayodhya. Taking to X, he shared the photo as he stood inside the newly-built temple. In the picture, Amitabh had his back to the camera while he folded his hands and smiled, looking at the deity; sharing the picture, he wrote in Hindi, “Jai Shri Ram. Aastha ne phir bulaaya, aur kheeche chale gaye hum. (Faith called again, and I was drawn to go there).”

Sharing the same photo on his blog later, Amitabh wrote, "A travel to the God’s again .. Ayodhya .. and back by the late evening .. sublime, serene, and filled with the reverence that divinity has ever instilled in us all ..Love and may the blessings of the Almighty be within us all." For the visit, Amitabh wore a white kurta, pyjama and saffron jacket.

The veteran star reached Ayodhya on Friday afternoon by a chartered flight and then travelled to the temple for darshan and aarti. He spent about half an hour inside the temple premises and also had a glimpse of the temple building from outside. After attending the special prayer service at the Ram temple, he reached the official residence of the Ayodhya commissioner for lunch.

Bachchan Sr. had attended the grand consecration ceremony of the Ram temple on January 22. He also bought a 10,000-square-foot plot in Ayodhya a few days ahead of the Pran Pratistha ceremony.

On the work front, the actor will be next seen in the sci-fi action thriller film ‘Kalki 2989 AD’ alongside Deepika Padukone and Prabhas. The film will hit the big screens on May 9. The film also features Kamal Haasan and Disha Patani in pivotal roles. He also has a courtroom drama film, ‘Section 84’ in the pipeline. Helmed by Ribhu Dasgupta, the film also stars Diana Penty, Nimrat Kaur, and Abhishek Banerjee in the lead roles.
