Whether he is delivering Bollywood’s most iconic dialogues or interacting with followers through his gigantic social media presence, Amitabh Bachchan is undoubtedly a movie legend. The veteran actor turned 80 on October 11, 2022, and it was indeed a momentous occasion to celebrate. Wishes and congratulatory messages poured in from the industry, his family and friends as well as countless followers. Amitabh Bachchan’s fandom is evident from the fact that even popular brands joined in the chorus wishing him on his special day. Milk brand Amul, for instance, paid a tribute to the legendary actor with a quirky topical. Take a look at their tweet:
Amul is known to share witty and creative posts on happenings across the world in the field of politics, technology and films. They take the news items and give it a foodie twist in their own unique way. Their post for Amitabh Bachchan’s 80th birthday was no different!
In the topical for Big B’s 80th birthday, we could see Amitabh Bachchan seated on the ‘hot seat’ of his popular quizzing show ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’ while the Amul girl held a small birthday cake for him. “Bachchpan se aapke fan hain,” read the header text, making a witty reference to his last name. “Amul – John Jaani Janamdin ka treat,” was the tagline.
“Wishing the Big B a healthy and happy 80th birthday,” wrote the brand on its official Twitter handle. The post has received several likes, comments and retweets. “An inspiration and favorite of all generations! We love Bachchan,” wrote one Twitter user in the comments section.
Take a look at the reactions:
