Whoever said 70 was over the hill did not bear witness to the star power or the charm that superstar Amitabh Bachchan still wields in Bollywood.
Last evening’s Stardust Awards was proof that the actor’s still got it, when a comment made on stage in jest had the Indian film industry’s biggest leading ladies making a beeline for Bachchan for a chaste kiss.
Bachchan, who won Stardust’s ‘Star of the Century’ Award, asked the starry audience at large, who wanted a kiss from him?
The words were out of his mouth when Priyanka Chopra, Vidya Balan, Parineeti Chopra, Bipasha Basu, Anushka Sharma and Farah Khan, all made a beeline for the superstar.
Later, Bachchan tweeted of his charming moment, writing: “Vidya, Priyanka, Parineeti, Anushka, Farah, Bipasha, and I gave them all a peck. It’s been a generous day.”
To this, ace choreographer and film director Farah answered: “We are your faithful groupies Amitji. That was a mad moment, where we ran up two you like crazed women; but then you are a rockstar.”
