Abhishek Bachchan returns from Cannes 2022 to a sad news

Mumbai: Abhishek Bachchan attended the 75th Cannes film festival with his wife Aishwarya Rai and daughter Aaradhya.
However, the actor is back in the bay and was papped at the airport two days ago.

Well, taking to his social media handle, Abhishek Bachchan has now revealed that he returned home to the news of his friend- stylist Akbar Shahpurwala’s demise.

In his post, Abhishek also mentioned that Akbar had stitched his first-ever suit when he was a child.

Mourning the demise of Akbar Shahpurwala, Abhishek wrote, “Returned home to very sad news. Akbar Shahpurwala a bonafide legend of the film world passed away. I knew him as Akki uncle. He made my father’s costumes and most of his suits from as far back as I can remember and many of my films too. He personally cut and stitched my first ever suit as a baby ( I still have it) to the tux I wore to Refugee’s premiere. If your costumes and suits were made by Kachins and then Gabana then you had arrived as a star. That was his influence and standing. If he personally cut your suit, then he truly loved you.”

The actor then recalled a few more memories with the stylist and wrote, “He always said to me that “ cutting a suit is not just tailoring, it’s an emotion. When you wear my suits, each stitch is made with love and filled with my blessings “. To me he was the best suit maker in the world! I will wear one of your enumerable suits that you made for me tonight, Akki uncle, and feel blessed! Rest in peace.”

Bollywood celebrities, such as Karan Johar and ace designer Manish Malhotra also paid their last respects by commenting on Abhishek’s emotional note.
