Megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who is in Chennai to perform at the opening of the Indian Premier League (IPL) season five, said that the city almost became his second home at a time when he shot a number of films there.
"In Chennai for IPL opening event... Chennai was almost second home. Did so many films here - gracious, disciplined, humble people," he tweeted.
The 69-year-old actor also found it a place greatly changed from the times he was a frequent visitor.
"So much has changed since the 70's... development, infrastructure... film making was a joy... great management, superior technology and endless talent of some greats in all fields... the studios, Gemini, AVM, Nagi Reddy, neat clean organized," he added.
Mr Bachchan will be taking the pledge on behalf of all the captains at the IPL opening ceremony and will read out a special poem on cricket, penned by Prasoon Joshi. A number of Bollywood stars as well as American pop singer Katy Perry is slated to perform at the event on April 4.
