Bollywood's impeccable actor and superstar Amitabh Bachchan, recently attended his last release Piku's screening at the Rashtrapati Bhavan in New Delhi and shared a proud moment when he received an outstanding response from Pranab Mukherjee, the Hon'ble President of India.
On Sunday night Mr. Bachchan posted on his blog, "The Honourable President of India Shri Pranab Mukherji, tonight watched 'PIKU' and may I say with great reserve of modesty, he absolutely loved it! Most particular he seemed to have enjoyed the 'perfect' Bengali-Hindi accent, which he felt was flawless. He later invited us over for dinner and we continued to discuss the film and its merits"
The Piku actor Amitabh Bachchan was also accompanied by the film's director Shoojit Sircar and son Abhishek Bachchan. While the other two movie stars - Deepika Padukone and Irrfan Khan missed the golden chance to be applauded by the President of India as they are currently out of country.
Last year also, his Bhootnath Returns was screened for the President. Mr Bachchan thanked the President from all his heart by saying, "This then is the venue of our screening, much like the screening of 'Bhoothnath Returns'.
Screening over the President welcomes us on stage and presents us with a gift that forms the memento's he presents and then invites us over for dinner, in one of the many ornate halls that this Palace possesses! It is an honour that cannot be replicated. Thank you Honorary President of India for your time and grace."
