An Amitabh fan shared the video on Twitter with the caption, “Amitabh Bachchan performs on stage his monologue from the movie Deewaar ~ Dynamic & Powerful @SrBachchan (Jumma Chumma Concert 1991) Must watch! 48 years of #Deewaar.” As he steps onto the stage, the actor addresses the audience and shares, “This one is from a scene that’s a particular favorite of mine. And it also happens to be a favorite of my mom’s and my mom is in the audience somewhere today and I dedicate this piece to her.”

He explains the setup of the scene and tells the audience about his character Vijay. His mother is sick and he goes to the temple to pray for her. The monologue begins with the iconic line, “Aaj khush toh bahut high tum (You must be very happy today).” Vijay does not visit the temple but makes this exception for his mother who is a staunch devotee. He gets emotional and begs her to recover quickly and that he will take any punishment for her sake.
