Why did Amitabh Bachchan thank Shahrukh Khan?

The Bollywood badshah feels that Amitabh Bachchan’s upcoming horror-comedy Bhoothnath Returns will go on to become one of the greatest hits of the year

Bachchan, 71, took to his blog to share how touched he was by Shahrukh Khan’s unexpected praise about his film, which is the sequel to 2008’s Bhoothnath.

“It was really sweet of Shahrukh to state quite unexpectedly as he arrived on the sets of Bhoothnath, that this film would be one of the three biggest hits of the year .. aapke muh mein ghee shakkar, laddo peda sab kuch (May your words come true). Thank you for being a part of Bhoothnath Returns and taking time out to shoot with us … ever gracious!” Bachchan posted.

Shahrukh also has a guest appearance in the film.

Besides Bachchan, Bhoothnath Returns will also star Usha Jadhav and Boman Irani, who plays the main antagonist in the film.
