Amitabh Tells Randeep Hooda: I’m Your Big Fan
MUMBAI, (IANS) – Megastar Amitabh Bachchan has heaped praises on actor Randeep Hooda and applauded his performance in the movie ‘Sarbjit’, calling himself a big fan of the latter.
Recently the quiz-based reality show ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’ season 15, host Big B welcomed Randeep and Dr Mukta Puntambekar from the ‘Muktangan Rehabilitation Centre’ to the hot seat.
During the conversation, Amitabh said: “Randeep, I wish to tell you that I’m a big fan.”
Randeep said: ‘Thank you.’
The ‘Sholay’ fame actor further shared: “No, I mean it. I’ve watched many of his films, and he has performed brilliantly in all of them. Randeep, you had done a movie with Aishwarya Rai — ‘Sarbjit’. It’s based on a real-life story. He accidentally crosses the border and is arrested and convicted. In the film, you see Randeep holed up in a small cell. He lived in those very conditions. I’ve never done that in my life.”
Randeep replied: “No, sir. You’ve been a true inspiration for me as well.”
Big B laughed and said: “I meant what I said. You don’t have to praise me just because I complimented you.”
