It’s not everyday that Bollywood stars travel in a local train. And here’s the Shehenshah of Bollywood himself seen boarding a crowded Mumbai local and singing merrily like an ordinary Mumbaikar.
A few lucky commuters on a Mumbai local train got a golden chance to see superstar Amitabh Bachchan up and close. The actor, who has always made it a point to connect with his fans on different platforms, took it a notch higher by traveling in a Mumbai local train.
Amitabh had invited Mumbai lad, Saurabh, who sings in local trains and donates the money collected to cancer patients, to his TV show Aaj Ki Raat Hai Zindagi. After making Saurabh a household n on national television, the megastar even paid him a visit on Sunday in a Mumbai local train. The excitement did not end there. Big B decided to sing with Saurabh.

On his blog, Big B wrote that the journey was not a ‘PR exercise’ and “was executed quietly without Saurabh’s knowledge, as a surprise for him and for the many that travel daily with him.”
