The 67-year-old veteran said that if asked about his caste, he will answer that he is an Indian.
“My Father never believed in caste and neither do any of us. He married a Sikh, I married a Bengali, my brother a Sindhi, my daughter a Punjabi, my son a Mangalorean, in his autobiography my father had expressed that future generations of his family should marry into different parts of the country. So far that tradition has been kept alive,” wrote the actor on his blog.
Census enumerators came calling on the Bachchan household, prompting the actor to express his views on the issue.
