When Big B wanted to slap Khushboo
South Indian actress Khushboo is an ardent fan of megastar Tabuh-bachchan/' title='Amitabh Bachchan' class='article_display_tag' data-id='amitabh-bachchan' id='article_tag_data_amitabh-bachchan' style='display: inline-block;'>Amitabh Bachchan. She always had in her mind to work with Big B someday but never got the opportunity. When after a long time, she met Amitabh Bachchan at an event, Khushboo could not resist herself and she went up to him and again expressed her desire to act with him. Instead of showing positive response, Amitabh Bachchan showed her a slap and the reason is cited below.
Amitabh Bachchan has seen Khushboo growing up and he feels awkward to act with her and when Khushboo expressed her heartfelt desire again, Big B could not control him to show her a chaanta when Khushboo again insisted him to be romantically linked with Big B.
"He showed me a chaanta when I told him that I wanted to do a film opposite him. I have been pleading for a long time now, but he doesn't approve of it since he has seen me as a kid. But I am dying to do a film where I would want to be romantically paired with him. I had called up and cursed Tabu when she got the opportunity to do Cheeni Kum with him. Hope some day it will materialise," she sighed.
Highly excited Khushboo promptly called up her actor-director husband Sunder to inform him that she met Bachchan. "He told me, 'now you won't get sleep in the night'," laughed Khushboo.
