Amitabh Bachchan floors SATYA 2 girl Aradhna Gupta

By Joginder Tuteja, Glamsham Editorial

In a career spanning over four decades, Amitabh Bachchan has won hearts of millions of fans and admirers. With B-Town folks and commoners alike queuing up just to catch a glimpse of the megastar, it was a pleasant surprise no less when newcomer Aradhna Gupta - who would soon be seen in Ram Gopal Varma's SATYA 2 - saw Big B occupying the same table as hers at a recently held event.

"This was during the recently held bash that was hosted by Ramu at a five star hotel. Aradhna was seated on a large table and checking some messages on phone when she heard some clamour around her. She didn't pay much heed to it at the beginning since quite a few top celebrities were stepping in for the event and there was a huge media rush all around her. However, she literally jumped on her seat when Amitabh Bachchan's characteristic baritone reached her ears. She immediately kept her phone down to realise that none other than Big B was seated right next to her," informs an onlooker.

For someone who has just started afresh in the industry and never met Amitabh Bachchan in her life, it was inarguably one of the best takeaways for her from SATYA 2 which features the debutant in an important role.

"It was one memorable experience for sure. It was fantastic to see someone of his stature wishing me success for the film and for people to like my performance in there. It was so amazing to meet him for the first time together and then even sharing the stage with him. I have admired and respected him for his hard work and punctuality. Now after standing next to him, it was all the more motivating," says Aradhna.

In fact Big B, who has worked with Ram Gopal Varma in quite a few films, also congratulated Aradhna for beginning her career with the maverick director and further inspired her to take her career very seriously in films to come.

SATYA 2 releases on 8th November.
