- Big B said a fan once addressed him as Salman Khan
- This happened when Big B was shooting for Badla in Glasgow
- Big B had earlier tweeted about this
Shah Rukh Khan, who is a bona-fide fan of Amitabh Bachchan, recently interviewed the 76-year-old actor for a fun promotional video for Badla. Big B's new film is produced by Shah Rukh Khan's Red Chillies Entertainment. In the video, Amitabh Bachchan was asked about his social media activities when a certain tweet from June 2018 cropped up, in which Big B had mentioned how he was once mistaken for Salman Khan in Glasgow. "We were shooting on the streets in Glasgow and then I had to walk on the footpath. As I was walking, a car went by and our desi bhai was sitting in the car, who waved and said: 'Hey, Salman Khan, how you doing?' So, I waved back at him and walked on. What to do," the Badla actor told Shah Rukh Khan.
If you remember, in June last year, Amitabh Bachchan had tweeted about the incident and written: "I walk the street of Glasgow by myself... until a car drives by and occupant yells out... "Hey, Salman Khan, how you doing?" Big B was shooting for Badla in Glasgow.

Meanwhile, more fun moments from the video includes Amitabh Bachchan revealing backstories to some of his tweets. The megastar also explained why he actually numbers his tweets and said: "Mujhe kahi track karna ho ki kaunse din kya kahaa maine, toh mere paas ek reference point hoga." When Shah Rukh asked him about the mysterious term "Badumba" with which Big B often begins or ends his tweets, he said: "Woh kuchh nahi hai... Kabhi kabhi excitement mein kuch baatein nikal jaati hai... toh aise hi 'Badumba' ho gaya."
