Actor Amitabh Bachchan went kiss-happy at an awards function this Saturday, placing a peck on the cheeks of Bollywood’s top divas all in a row.
When the 70-year-old actor went on the stage at the Stardust Awards to collect the award on behalf of his son Abhishek in the best comic actor
category (for Bol Bachchan), actor Ayushmann requested him to do a jig on the song ‘Jumma Chumma de de’ from his 1991 hit, Hum. It was when he had to give out the kiss as part of the song’s act that the heroines in the front row — Vidya Balan, Priyanka Chopra, Anushka Sharma, Bipasha Basu and Parineeti Chopra — came running up for it.
