Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan condoled the demise of legendary painter M.F. Husain by remembering a 'sanjeevani booti' painting which was gifted to the actor after the accident on the sets of "Coolie".

"MF Hussain, artist, painter, friend ... passes away! Sad, very sad ! Many of his works and gifts adorn my home. Hussain's best painting gift to me...a Hanuman with 'sanjeevani booti' flying...given to me in Breach Candy Hospital, during Coolie episode," Amitabh posted on micro-blogging site Twitter.

"Another special painting he did for me...translated my poem I wrote in Hospital, on canvas ... very special and most endearing !!" added the 68-year-old.

Husain, who rose from painting cinema hoardings to becoming one of the world's most celebrated artists, died in a London hospital early Thursday at the age of 95.
