In 2020, we were not just subjected to stay at home to stay safe from the ongoing pandemic, but also had to get used to attending the online classes and working from home. The Internet has helped us keep up with the studies and complete our professional commitments. During these troubled times, the educational institutions ensured that the students don’t miss on learning and hence, started the online classes. 2020 brought along a major shift in the way education is imparted in our country as real-life classrooms were replaced by virtual ones. While we had seen countless memes on how kids interrupted their working parents’ online meetings, Amitabh Bachchan shares an instance when he mistakenly intervened his granddaughter, Aaradhya Bachchan’s virtual class.

It was nine years ago on November 16, 2011, when the elated grandfather, Amitabh Bachchan had announced the arrival of a little angel in their lives as his daughter-in-law, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan had given birth to a daughter at SevenHills Hospital in Andheri. Announcing that Aishwarya and Abhishek Bachchan had embraced parenthood and the arrival of a little angel in the Bachchan house, Big B had tweeted, "I am Dada to the cutest baby girl." To mark his granddaughter’s ninth birthday in 2020, Big B had posted a collage, featuring 9 throwback pictures of Aaradhya from when she was one till now. Mr Bachchan had captioned it as “Happy birthday Aaradhya... all my love.”
Amitabh Bachchan is currently hosting the twelfth season of Kaun Banega Crorepati and on one of the Kids’ Special episodes, he recalled an incident when he mistakenly interrupted his granddaughter, Aaradhya Bachchan's virtual class. When he once saw Aaradhya doing yoga poses, he asked her what she’s doing. To which, Aaradhya asked him to move aside as her online class was going on and her teacher was teaching yoga. Then, when the kid contestant noticed and complimented the cufflink on Big B’s outfit, he revealed that all his cufflinks have names of all kids from his family and the one he is wearing has his grandson, Agastya Bachchan's name.
Amitabh Bachchan had spent his lockdown at his Mumbai residence, Jalsa with his children, Shweta Bachchan Nanda and Abhishek Bachchan, daughter-in-law, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and grandchildren, Navya Naveli Nanda, Agastya Nanda and Aaradhya Bachchan. Mr Bachchan had made the most of his lockdown phase by keeping up with his fitness regime and a few months ago, Big B had posted a mirror selfie with his workout partner. Senior Bachchan had posted a mirror selfie with his grandson, Agastya and his expression had made him the coolest grandpa ever! Amitabh Bachchan had captioned the picture as “Fight... fight the fit... fit the fight... reflective mirrors, laterally inverted imagery... and the inspiration with Grandson.” (Also Read: Aishwarya Rai Bachchan Revealed How She Had Reacted When Addressed As 'Mrs Bachchan' For First Time)
In May 2019, Agastya Nanda had graduated from Sevenoaks School, London and his proud grandfather, Amitabh Bachchan had penned his feelings in his blog. He had written, "Another (grandchild) several miles away graduates and it's a moment of great pride and joy... The family is all with him and there are frequent messages and pictures flying about. But I mean, he was just born the other day and we had all been around his mother at Breach Candy Hospital, and carried him into the world with affection and love... And there he is today, spanking big boy, carnation on his suit lapel, hair flushed back and looking very British... And taller than everyone else in the family. Err...almost... still have to see where he measures against Abhishek and me."
In an interview with the IANS, Amitabh Bachchan had shared how he takes advantage of his authoritative figure in the house and spoils his grandchildren, Navya Naveli Nanda, Agastya Nanda and Aaradhya Bachchan. Big B had said, “I’ve loved all of them. When I want to spoil my grandkids, I am so authoritative that their parents dare not oppose me. Aaradhya will still come and destroy my working desk, as she wants to use this pen and wants to write things and wants to play with the laptop. It brings immense joy and is a beautiful experience.” (Also Read: Amitabh Bachchan Retweets A Video Of His Granddaughter, Aaradhya Bachchan Singing A Devotional Song)
