Big B causes chaos in Parliament

india Updated: Jul 24, 2006 16:23 IST

The arrival of superstar Amitabh Bachchan to Parliament House on Monday virtually threw the security out of gear, as he was mobbed by a large number of onlookers as well as journalists especially from the electronic media.

Bachchan, a former Lok Sabha Member, visited Parliament House to witness the swearing-in of his wife Jaya Bachchan as a Member of the Rajya Sabha.

Flanked by a posse of security men, the Big B waded through the milling crowd and reached the Rajya Sabha's visitors gallery to watch the proceedings.

No sooner did he enter the gallery, his celluloid colleague and Lok Sabha Member Jaya Prada (seated in the visitor's gallery) and a few others rose to offer their seats.

Acknowledging their gesture, Bachchan with folded hands said he was comfortable in the third row.

The superstar, before the House assembled for the day, also responded to the greetings of some Members already seated in the House, with folded hands.
