Chairman of Mahindra group Anand Mahindra, who is known for quirky and funny tweets on social media, recently tweeted about megastar Amitabh Bachchan. Anand and Bachchan engaged in banter over the ‘Big B’ nickname that the actor enjoys. Anand knows only one Big B and that is the upcoming union budget (Big Budget). So he took to social media and wrote, “With due apologies to Amitabh Bachchan, there is only one ‘Big B’ this week…and that’s the Big Budget”.

To this, megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who is lovingly known as the Big B of Bollywood by his fans, wrote: “Hahaha, Anand Mahindra. ‘Big B’ is a media created epithet, one that I have never subscribed to. The ‘Big B’ this week that you mention, will create media… that many shall subscribe to.”

Take a look at the tweets here:
