Mumbai : The megastar of Bollywood Amitabh Bachchan remembered his first trip to the Himalayan country in 1954, which was also his maiden visit to a foreign nation. He remembered it Keeping the Nepal quake victims in his prayers.

The 72-year-old actor said during his growing years Nepal was a dream geographical location and even though it was a foreign land, it had "several universal qualities with India". "I visited Nepal in 1954. We were still living in Allahabad.

Babuji had desired a meeting with some of his very close literary contemporaries. We flew from Patna airport to Kathmandu, the Capital of Nepal, in a twin engined propeller Dakota aircraft, that warhorse of the WW 2 era, and perhaps those that have interest in aeronautics, the most sturdy and long lasting aircraft to date," 

"I visited Nepal in 1954... in a twin-engined propellor Dakota aircraft... it was my very first experience on a plane, and of course my very first visit to a foreign country. The excitement generated was beyond compare," the 72-year-old recounted on his blog.
