Expressing his happiness over meeting Mr Amitabh Bachchan, Pankaj ji said, “After meeting Sir (Amitabh Bachchan, I felt like I have achieved everything and that I have attained nirvana. The reason for this is because I had already achieved my parents’ dream by sitting on the hot seat opposite him.”
He further said that talking to Mr Amitabh Bachchan he felt at home, “He asked me about my problems and encouraged me talking about how I have achieved that which even a normal human being couldn’t have done. He told me to not lend my ears to others and continue my work. He said, “you are the pride of your mother and father and in the future too you will be the reason of your parents’ pride with your work.”
In a sweet moment on the show, host Mr Amitabh Bachchan also fulfilled Pankaj Kumar Singh’s wish of a meet and greet with his favourite actress, Genelia Deshmukh. She spoke to him over a video call with beau Ritesh Deshmukh and the couple wished him a great life ahead.
