why chose surname
Actually, Bhagyashree Taide, who was sitting opposite Amitabh Bachchan on the hotseat of KBC, told that her parents were against their marriage only because the girl’s cast was not the same… but they got married and the family broke up with her. Hearing this, Amitabh Bachchan requested Bhagyashree’s father to accept the daughter-son-in-law. After this Amitabh Bachchan told that his parents also belonged to different castes. His mother Teji Bachchan was a Sikh while father was from a Kayastha family of Uttar Pradesh. Amitabh told that his father chose the surname ‘Bachchan’ because it was not associated with any cast.
when enrolled in school
Recalling his school days, he told that when he was admitted in the school, he had to be given a surname in the admission process, so his parents gave this surname.
