This 103-year-old Christine Carvalho, a huge fan of Amitabh Bachchan, had been trying to meet him for years. Finally, when Big B got to know about her ardent desire, he couldn’t refuse and met Christine and even posted some pictures of his interaction with her.

Christine was so overwhelmed on meeting her favourite star, her reactions cannot be put to words. Big B also revealed that the meet was a “special interlude” in the day.
The inexplicable happiness of the woman on meeting her favorite actor can be clearly seen in the pics.
Being Bollywood megastar and one of the most influential actors in the history of Indian cinema, Amitabh Bachchan has millions of fans. Although he is grateful to all, meeting all of them in person is not possible in reality. But, there are a few who were lucky enough to have met him at least once. A 103-year-old woman has now become one of those luckiest people.
On the work front, Amitabh Bachchan’s ‘Sarkar 3‘ released on May 12. He has started prepping for ‘Thugs of Hindostan’ co-starring Aamir Khan, Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Shaikh. He has also shot for a cameo in ‘Pad Man’.
Amitabh Bachchan is reuniting with Rishi Kapoor on screen after 26 years for upcoming film ‘102 Not Out’. The film, that is said to be based on Saumya Joshi’s Gujarati play ‘102 Not Out’, will see Amitabh Bachchan playing a 102-year-old man while Rishi Kapoor will portray the character of his 75-year-old son.
The first look of ‘102 Not Out’ was released a few days back and sent social media into a tizzy.
Shooting for ‘102 Not Out’ has already begun in Mumbai and Amitabh Bachchan is almost unrecognisable in his new avatar.
