It was a regular Saturday afternoon when the flamboyant West Indian batsman bowled over India's biggest star, Amitabh Bachchan, who found himself at a loss of words at this surprising yet gratifying gesture from the West Indian sensation Chris Gayle.
Gayle confessed his love for Sr. Bachchan's movies and style, and thus went on to gift him his signed golden-willowed Spartan bat.
Being the humble human being Mr. Bachchan is, he found it surprising and a 'revelation' to have found a fan in the West Indian great Chris Gayle. His words are a testimony to his gratitude and demeanor.
Mr Chris Gayle .. what an honour .. I never knew you would know me .. so humbled .. we are all great fans of yours ! https://t.co/r5w7GYcEkl— Amitabh Bachchan (@SrBachchan) February 26, 2016
And like any other cricket fan, Mr. Bachchan couldn't contain his excitement on receiving this accolade.
