In his signature baritone, Bachchan set the stage alive with a heartwarming poem written by Prasoon Joshi. It was the actor’s first stage appearance after undergoing abdominal surgery. The 69-year-old was accompanied by dancers from the Shiamak Davar troupe, who described the essence of the poem through their performance.

His routine was followed by Colonial Cousins, DJ Ravi Drums and South African percussionist group 1st Project who mesmerised with their peppy numbers.
