Puneet Bansal, whose number incidentally has an added 0 claims, he has received around 10,000 calls from across the world, apart from calls from India. Puneet also said that he has been flooded with sms asking details of Big B. Puneet Bansal said that he tried explaining to the callers, but they would abuse him thinking he is Amitabh Bachchan's PA.
There are many others too who are facing a tough time handling calls from Big B's fans. They plan to either to change their number or move to the court.
