Amitabh Bachchan is one of the legendary actors that the Indian cinema is blessed with. Bachchan has starred in over hundreds off films and has a huge fan following. He is 77 years old and if old age has taught him one thing, it is how to balance the complexities of life. He is often seen talking to his followers and fans, guiding them via his social media handles. Amidst the COVID-19 lockdown, he has been seen urging his fans to stay indoors and avoid going out unless it is a very urgent matter. Read on to know more about what Big B was up to this week:
On Monday, Bachchan posted a video of a car challenge by a Twitter account called Speak Comedy, where a man steps out of a moving car, and dances on a song. He later retweeted a video by one of his fans, which was from a movie he did four decades ago. It is very similar to Drake's challenge back in 2018. On the same day, he shared several throwbacks photos. Here are the posts.
