Mumbai: Megastar Amitabh Bachchan describes cricketing legend Sunil Gavaskar as one of the most entertaining people ever and says he is the pride of India.
"Just had the great honour of felicitating dear friend and sporting icon, Sunil Gasvakar... A great son of India... Privileged," the 70-year-old actor tweeted.
"Sunil Gavaskar as gracious and as entertaining as ever. He is a great mimic among many other special attributes he possesses, and had the entire audience in splits," he added.
The felicitation was held Saturday.
Amitabh says Gavaskar is one of the few people who have never failed to wish him on his birthday.
"The one matter that has remained constant with him is his phone call on my birthday each year. And this has gone on for more than almost 30 years. Irrespective of where he may be, in which part of the world, that phone call always comes," wrote Big B.
