Amitabh also took to his blog and shared a series of photos with his dog and wrote, “… and then they grow up and then one day leave us .. heartbreaking ! but while they are around they are the life and soul of our life ..!!” Earlier in 2013, Amitabh’s beloved pet dog, Shanouk, died after a brief illness. His Piranha Dane, one of the world's tallest dog breeds, meant a gentle warm breeze on a cold morning to the superstar. He was named by his son Abhishek Bachchan.
