Mumbai: Saurabh Nimbkar, a guitarist who is featured Aaj Ki Raat Zindegi, the TV show which Big B host, was accompanied by a very unusual happening at Mumbai local on Monday. Big B Amitabh Bachchan sings Rang Barse at Mumbai local train to raise funds for cancer patients.
The 73-year-old star clapped along with Saurabh who played his guitar. While Twitter found out, #BigBAurHeroKaSafar began trending.
According to Big B this journey was not a PR exercise. He also writes on his blog , “was executed quietly without Saurabh’s knowledge, as a surprise for him and for the many that travel daily with him.”
“Saurabh Nimbkar, sitting to my left in the picture, that came on our show #AKRHZ, plays the guitar and sings on local trains and collects the meagre money he gets from co-passengers, to distribute to the less fortunate cancer patients and their families, in the city. His story was heart breaking, I felt I would want to sit by him and travel the distance he does, do what he does, in a show of support and spirit for his incredible thinking.” Big B added.
Big B will next be seen on the silver screen in Bijoy Nambiar’s Wazir with actor-filmmaker Farhan Akhtar. He will also make a cameo appearance with his wife Jaya Bachchan in R Balki’s upcoming romantic film Ki And Ka, starring Arjun Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor Khan.
