Amitabh Bachchan took a trip down memory lane as he recalled shooting for Kabhie Kabhie in Lucknow, 44 years ago. He shared a picture collage of a still from the film and a still from his upcoming release, which was also shot in Lucknow.

Bhumi Pednekar showered praise on Amitabh for giving fans ‘memorable characters’ for more than four decades now. “44 years later and still giving us such memorable characters...I’m telling you you’re the most baller person ever,” she commented on his Instagram post.

The use of the word ‘baller’ left Amitabh confused. He replied to her comment saying, “Arre...Bhumi...what is ‘baller’??? Kab se pooch rahe hai, koi bata hi nahi raha (I have been asking for a long time but no one is answering me).”

Meanwhile, it appears that Amitabh has been approached to be a part of a campaign to combat fake news in the time of the coronavirus pandemic. Talking about the same, he wrote in his latest blog post, “..each day brings discussion and consider on the morrow .. when and how .. is it correct or a rumour .. a directive giving instructions of opening up .. another immediately denying it .. so what is real and true and confirmed .. no one knows .. an organisation from the seas beyond , recognised accepted uniformly universally wishes to do a campaign on just this .. to bring awareness of distorted news about the virus .. needs my participation.”
