As is ritual, Amitabh Bachchan greets his fans outside his house every year on his birthday and he did it this year too. On his 80th birthday, the Bollywood veteran greeted his fans with a namaste and a bright smile outside.
Earlier, Abhishek Bachchan had revealed in an Instagram post that it "took a lot of secrecy, a lot of planning, a lot of hard-work and a lot of rehearsal" for planning the surprise for Big B. "But then again, he deserves no less! It was very emotional to be able to surprise dad and celebrate his 80th Birthday at the place he loves the most, his workplace. My gratitude to the entire team of Sony and Kaun Banega Crorepati for helping me do this and making tonight's episode so special for my father," wrote Abhishek Bachchan.
Kaun Banega Crorepati marked Big B's debut on television. Except the third season, Amitabh Bachchan has hosted all the seasons of the show. The third season of Kaun Banega Crorepati was hosted by Shah Rukh Khan.
