Amitabh Bachchan was seen with a bling and cash initially in the movie but lost it towards the end. It was noticed that not having a mom was least of his concern due to all the riches he inherited already. Make sure you take a life coverto secure your future once you are not round for them.

Be like Aamir Khan in the film. When it is about financial management. If he didn’t feel attracted towards a girl, he won’t get into a committed relationship or simply just refuse to be in a relationship at all. Things change when he felt strongly about Preity Zinta, he was ready to make a commitment then. Do likewise, unless you know financial schemes inside out don’t invest. Also don’t get stuck in sweet talks by bank representatives.

never kept his nerves calm. He never used to wait for the appropriate timing to
execute any order. He had this now or never attitude while his elder brother

the right time to act. Act like Nana be patient and wait for the chicken to
hatch. Liquidating a fixed deposit before the due date could impose a penalty

You too should read all scheme related documents before entering into a scheme and don’t feel forced to pay any unnecessary charges imposed onto you.
