During the great Indian Cricket team victory against Pakistan, we have missed one very important gesture of a super star.
To sing the National Anthem in this match, our very own Amitabh Bachchan has not taken a penny to attend and sing in this ceremony.
He has not even taken any money for his flight and hotel expenses. He has taken all to himself. This was confirmed by Saurav Ganguly himself. There were rumors that he has taken 4 Crores to recite National Anthem at this event. But all this speculations come to close when Saurav Ganguly announced he has not taken a single penny to attend this event.
AnandbazarPatrika quoted Saurav Ganguly saying, “Mr Bachchan is one and only, a special person. I am eternally grateful to him” He further said, ” Can you ever imagine someone paying Rs 30 lakhs of his own pocket to perform? He booked his own flight, bought his own tickets and even paid the hotel bills. I literally begged him to take some money but he said that I am doing it for love and there is no question of money being involved”.
His recite of National Anthem has given goosebumps to all indian during that historical cricket match between India and Pakistan at Eden Gardens.
