Veteran actor Amitabh Bachchan has a huge number of fan following not just in India but also abroad. Young actors eagerly wait to work with the Shahenshah. Recently Fast and Furious actor Tyrese Gibson revealed that he is a huge fan of Big B and wants to meet the Indian megastar one day.

Gibson, who was in India last week, took to Instagram to praise the Indian cine star. Calling Amitabh a legend, Gibson wrote, “I hope and pray that I get to meet and greet and shake his hand… Yes, ladies and gentlemen he is legend. (He has done) over 190 Bollywood movies”.

He went on expressed his admiration for Big B by appreciating his contribution to Indian cinema. “He (Amitabh) first gained popularity in the early 1970s for films such as ‘Zanjeer’, ‘Deewaar’ and ‘Sholay’, and was dubbed as India’s ‘Angry Young Man’ for his on-screen roles in Bollywood. Referred to as the Shahenshah of Bollywood, ‘Sadi ka Mahanayak’ (Hindi for ‘greatest actor of the century’), Star of the Millennium, or Big B, he has since appeared in over 190 Indian films in a career spanning almost five decades,” he added.
