He has millions of admirers but on Monday, it was Sourav Ganguly's turn to become an awe-struck fan. The sheer grace and charisma of Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan, of course, does that to most Indians.
Former India captain Ganguly greeted Bachchan on the sets of 'Piku,'and could hardly contain his smile and admiration for the celebrated actor. Wife Dona - who had previously requested Bachchan to visit her house - was also present. Both Sourav and Dona are self-confessed fans of the 72-year-old actor who is currently in Kolkata to shoot for the film.
While Sourav was seen wearing a casual polo shirt, teamed with denims, Dona was elegant in a traditional Bengali sari. What set Twitter abuzz following the visit though was Bachchan's look for the Shoojit Sircar-directed film. He was wearing a Nehru jacket and was seen with a pot belly.
Bachchan has been busy shooting for 'Piku' in Kolkata but the actor still found time to post pictures on his official Facebook account. "There have been some greats on set today .. the great and legendary Saurav Ganguly, India's pride on the Cricket field ," he wrote.
Ganguly had previously requested Bachchan to visit his residence during various meetings - be it at Sahara Shree Subroto Roy's house in Lucknow or at various advertisement shoots. A Mid-Day report on Sunday said that it was Dona's dream that the Bollywood superstar visits her dance school Diksha Manjari and as well her residence. Bachchan Sr is expected to pay a visit to the Gangulys any time between Monday and Friday.
