It is not often that you find megastar Amitabh Bachchan in a playful mood but the actor who dons the hat of a "naughty" genie in Aladin, surprised a young journalist by asking her out for dinner.

The 67-year-old actor who was in the capital to promote the upcoming fantasy, was bemused when a journalist told his co-star Riteish Deshmukh that if she had Big B for a genie, she could never get over the temptation to rub the magic lamp every few seconds just to see him.

Before Deshmukh could reply, Bachchan took the mic and asked her, "Young lady what are you doing tonight? If you are free I would love to take you out to dinner."
