Bollywood bids adieu to Balasaheb Thackeray

By Anirban Das, Glamsham Editorial

Shiv Sena patriarch Balasaheb Thackeray's funeral procession was reportedly attended by nearly 19 lakh people on November 18 that began from Matoshree and headed to Shivaji Park. But, it was not only the aam janta who stepped on streets in numbers to pay their respect and last tribute to the politician, but big Bollywood celebs also attended the funeral at Shivaji Park.

Amitabh Bachchan, Sanjay Dutt, Nana Patekar, Vinod Khanna, Udit Narayan and many others were spotted grieving the sad demise of Bal Thackeray. Big B also expressed his sorrow on a social networking site, "Yes Bala Saheb, I would like to believe, was close to me, and never had I imagined that I would live to see his motionless body!!"

Many Bollywood bigwigs also visited Thackeray when he was bedridden at Matoshree few days back.
