Big B becomes the brand ambassador of Gujarat
Paan style="font-size: 12px;">On his recent visit to Gujarat, superstar Amitabh Bachchan became the brand ambassador of the state. Amitabh Bachchan visited the state to promote his film, ‘Paa’. After the screening of the film, Big B and Gujarat CM Mr Narendra Modi met and both shared pleasantries. Amitabh spoke many goodies about the state and Narendra Modi roped the biggest star of Bollywood to endorse his state.
Amitabh said "There are lots of good things in Gujarat which should be promoted. I am ready to give my voice and face for the promotion of Gujarat tourism." Bachchan also added "The main motive of my visit is to promote my film Paa which deals with many sensitive issues and I wish Gujarat government makes the film tax free".
Later Amitabh Bachchan gifted a copy of his father Harivansh Rai Bachchan’s poetic collection, ‘Madhushala’ to Modi. Modi thanked Mr Bachchan for his generosity and expressed gratitude to his offer of promoting the state tourism.
Shockingly, Big B’s offer to promote the state came at that crucial time when his best friend and Samajwadi party leader Amar Singh quit from his post. Amar Singh and his party has been a huge critic of Modi and BJP.
If Modi honored Big B by calling ‘Mahanayak’ then Amitabh in his praise said, "I can’t compare myself with Modi. Inke baare main kya bolu. (what can I say about this man )" which left Modi blushing. "He is doing a good job as a chief minister in Gujarat. His efforts are commendable”.
