I am a die-hard Amitabh Bachchan fan. Call me and you will hear some popular ringtones from films that feature him. Ek Doosre Se Karte Hain Pyaar Hum is the current one. I have been an Amitabh Bachchan fan since childhood. My cousin and I have watched every Bachchan flick first day, first show

Over the years, I have literally grown up watching my hero from close quarters. In fact, my choice of profession had a lot to do with my admiration for him.u00a0

Incidentally, my very first photography assignment was to click Aishwarya Rai — who was to become Big B’s future bahu — at Mumbai airport on her return from South Africa after winning the Miss World crown.u00a0

I also was the only photographer who managed to capture Amitabh lighting his dad Harivansh Rai Bachchan’s funeral pyre. On receiving the picture, Big B sent me a hand-written note of appreciation. I hold that note very close to my heart. On the wonderful occasion of his birthday, I can only say, “I love you, Amitji!” u00a0
