In fact, in the last episode, a question was asked about the Quit India Movement. Komal Tukadia was stuck with this question and using Lifeline he gave the correct answer to this question of 12,50,000. Big B then stated that he was born on October 11, 1942. This was the time when the movement to leave India began in earnest in India.
Big B said that at that time his mother Teji Bachchan was 8 months pregnant and he was about to be born. At this point, when Teji Bachchan saw a procession chanting Inquilab Zindabad, Teji came out of the house and marched in front of the crowd with the slogan.
He further said that father Harivansh Rai Bachchan was scared when he came home and wife Teji Bachchan did not know where he had gone in such a situation. When he returned, he told Teji that he had joined the crowd.
Harivansh Rai Bachchan was then with a friend. On hearing this, his friend laughed and said that if the child in Teji Zia’s womb was a boy, he should be named ‘Inquilab’. However, Amitabh later said that he was named Sumitranandan Pant, the great writer of Amitabh and a friend of his father Harivansh Rai Bachchan.
