Bollywood Superstar Amitabh Bachchan’s birthday is most looked forward to by his fans and the media. With his posters, images, write-ups and movies featuring on almost all platforms, it is like a mini festival that happens every October. Being the humble human being that he is however, Big B avoids cutting cake or any kind of celebration personally on his birthday and simply prefers to spend quality time with his family. This year however the Badla actor made an exception for his 79th birthday for his ‘Chehre’ producer Anand Pandit and even cut a cake with him!


Talking about the day, Pandit said, “It is tough to gift Amitji anything that can do justice to his stature but the success of 'Chehre' has made him very happy and that gives me even more joy. The fact that the reception the film has received from fans all over the world, coincides with his birthday is just serendipitous and in a way a perfect gift for him.” He further added, “Usually, he likes to light a lamp to mark this special day but this time, he cut the cake seeing the eagerness of the team. Being the kind of person that he is, I think he didn't want to disappoint him. He realized the team wanted to thank him for being a part of 'Chehre' and our lives.”


Chehre is directed by Rumy Jafry and also stars Annu Kapoor, Emraan Hashmi, Krystle D’Souza and Rhea Chakraborty in crucial roles. The film released on 27th August 2021 on Amazon Prime Video.
