Aniruddh Dave’s selfie moment with Amitabh Bachchan on Kaun Banega Crorepati 8

The popular actor is on cloud nine after posing with Big B on the night of the grand premiere

Aniruddh Dave was hosting the grand premiere of Kaun Banega Crorepati 8, which was held in Surat. He shared the stage with Amitabh Bacchan, Kapil Sharma, Meiyang Chang and Neeti Mohan on the opening episode. Talking about the experience, Dave said “I hosted the public interaction and questionnaire section and also did a skit on Mr. Bachchan and Dharmendraji. It was an overwhelming experience ‘coz he is an icon, the legend has reached a milestone where no one can reach.”

Aniruddh claims that he was very excited when Siddharth Basu introduced him to Amitabh Bachchan. “I met him for the first time when Siddhartha Basu introduced me as a co-anchor with him. I was honored; and then I also got confused because I was not sure how to exchange pleasantries with him – whether to shake hands or say a namaste or touch his feet. In the end I did all three things together.”

Big B also praised Aniruddh on his energy and they both clicked several selfies together. “I was overwhelmed when for the first time he hugged me and clicked a few selfies; he also changed his faces for different expressions. I got very emotional. Mr Bachchan has oodles of energy in him. He is very particular about everything. Newcomers can learn a lot from him. He doesn’t even sit while working. He is so active, works day and night and still manages to concentrate on the content.”

Guess it was Aniruddh’s favourite moment with Big B!
