While most people are awestruck by Amitabh Bachchan’s personality, at an awards night recently, the suave and confident host Ayushmann Khurrana proved otherwise.

When Amitabh went on stage to receive the award for the best host in non-fiction category, Ayushmann announced that he wished to take his blessings, now that he had the opportunity.

But while walking from one end of the stage towards Amitabh, he slipped on the floor and just about managed to save himself from a bad fall.

Amitabh then told him to be careful, to which the young actor immediately replied with a smile, “Aapke saamne toh ache ache fisal jaate hain Amitji, toh main kya cheez hu (Even well-known people slip when you’re around, so how can I avoid it?).”

Well, looks like Amitabh was quite impressed by the young actor’s witty reply and even joked around with him for a while after the incident.
