Big B invites trouble for a Patiala resident
Ever since Amitabh Bachchan gave a wrong number to a contestant on KBC, Patiala resident Puneet Bansal’s lost his peace. Unfortunately, the nine digit number that Big B announced on the national TV matched with Puneet Bansal. Big B gave his number when a contestant asked for it and he obliged.
So far Mr. Bansal has received 10,000 calls and SMSs from Amitabh’s fan not only from India but from abroad. At first, Puneet was in the dark what was happening to him and why people are addressing him as Mr. Bachchan but one caller cleared the air that Big B read out this number as his own on KBC. The picture becomes clear to Puneet.
During a 25-minute chat with TOI on Friday, Bansal received atleast 98 missed calls.
Frustrated Puneet informed that he has sent a legal notice to Big B and KBC. "Initially, I was at a loss... But on September 12, when a caller told me he wanted to talk to Amitabh Bachchan and that Big B had given the number during KBC, I understood," said Bansal.
Bansal has now stopped receiving any calls. He also claims that has received some 2,500 SMSes for the superstar.
