West Indies swashbuckling opening batsman Chris Gayle recently visited Bollywood star Amitabh Bachchan at the latter's residence.

Amitabh Bachchan, whom Gayle referred to as 'boss', shared the photograph of the two and tweeted: "Did not know he was a fan, was my politest best, hoping he would repay the compliment on Thursday IndvWI."

The batsman went on to post the picture on his Instagram account and praised the legend's hospitality. He though wasn't willing to comply with 'the request'.

"Thanks for the invite and hospitality at your home, thanks also for the books. The boss wants me to score a 100 and India win but I would take the win rather than the 100," the West Indian wrote on his Instagram account.

The West Indies team will take on India in an epic semifinal clash on Thursday, 31st March 2016 at Wankhede stadium.
