Amitabh Bachchan remembers Christopher Lee

Megastar Amitabh Bachchan walked down the memory lane and reminisces the time he spend with the Hollywood legend Christopher Lee, who passed away in London at the age of 93. Big B took to social networking site to share the cherished memories with his extended family.

 “Some years ago I was invited to be on the Jury for the Miss World Contest, in South Africa, soon after the year after our own Miss World debacle in ABCL. 

“Sir Christopher Lee was on the panel of judges with us, and I remember the wonderful time spent with him during the contest. He was a great company… Played a few rounds of golf with him during the off moments, a proficient golfer with a handsome handicap…,” the ‘Piku’ star wrote on his blog.

Amitabh Bachchan feels sorrow that he lost the chance to meet the ‘Lord of the Rings’ star again when he travelled to India to shoot for Jinnah biopic. “A few years later I got a note from him that he was on his way to India to film… A chapter in the history of pre independent India… He was playing Jinnah, the Founder of Pakistan.

“I was travelling and could not respond to him … Sad that I missed his company and the opportunity to host him here in Mumbai… And today he has left this world… Prayers and peace in condolence!!,” he added.

Lee, died in a hospital in London on June 7 following respiratory problems and heart failure.
