Megastar Amitabh Bachchan was stumped when he was presented an autographed bat by cricketer Chris Gayle. Bachchan said he is in awe Indian cinema’s reach and that finding a fan in the West Indian cricket star came as a "revelation" to him.
The 73-year-old took to various social media platforms to express his happiness over getting a token of love from the international batting sensation.
He tweeted: "Mr. Chris Gayle... What an honour... I never knew you would know me... So humbled. We are all great fans of yours! I mean Chris Gayle, a fan of Hindi movies and presents me a golden bat autographed? I mean this is revelation".
Gayle, who plays in the Indian Premier League as well, proclaimed himself to be a big fan of the Bollywood ‘Shahenshah’, who has regaled film buffs for over four decades.
"Proud to gift my Spartan bat to a legend @srbachchan, love his movies and his style, legend. Thanks @spartancricket," Gayle tweeted. After Big B thanked him, Gayle posted: "See you soon in India."
