It is a known fact that Maniesh Paul is a huge admirer of Amitabh Bachchan sir. As recently, he even shared a heartwarming note reminiscing his childhood memories, on the legend’s birthday.
And Maniesh never misses a chance to meet Amitabh sir, as he steps into whenever he finds out that this veteran actor is shooting around him. So recently, Amitabh Bachchan started shooting for KBC and beside Maniesh Paul was shooting for his show in the city. As soon as he got to know that he was shooting in the vicinity, he immediately visited him on the sets. Take a look –
Usually, whenever he meets the senior actor, he touches his feet and hugs him, but in their recent encounter he regrets not being able to do owing to social distancing due to corona.
The anchor shared, “It is always a delightful pleasure to meet Amit sir, to be able to bask in the mesmerizing aura of the legend. He has been my inspiration growing up and he continues to inspire me even today, so whenever I get an opportunity to meet him, I make sure to grab it with open arms. In the lockdown, I haven’t had the chance to meet him and hence when I got to know he was shooting for KBC just nearby where I was shooting for my show, I took the opportunity and visited him in the break. Given the entire pandemic situation, we are strictly following safety protocols, especially considering Amit sir’s health conditions, hence I couldn’t hug him or even touch his feet and I deeply regret it. However, it is always an overwhelming experience to even just interact with him.”
