Ever wondered why Amitabh Bachchan remains one of the most popular host on television till date? Tonight you may find the answer to it as the Big B charms another contestant on his quiz show.
Today when a contestant, Jyotsana, takes to the hot seat and tells Bachchan that she is a diehard fan of Hema Malini, the gracious host decides to grant Jyotsana’s wish. He calls his co-star Hema Malini and makes the fan speak to her idol.
And what makes it even better is that Big B goes on a memory trip himself while talking to his co-star and friend. When Hema Malini picks up the phone, Amitabh Bachchan breaks into true Sholay mode, saying “Tumhara naam kya hai Basanti?” (What’s your name, Basanti?), causing Hema Malini to break into a giggling fit.
And the fun carries on the show through the night as the infectious laughter spreads. After the Jay-Basanti episode, another contestant from Gujarat comes up to entertain. A stand-up comic, Dhaval Virani cracks up Big B with his comic streak.
