Age is just a number! This phrase aptly suits the life of megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who even at the age of 80, does not hesitate to run about half a kilometer on the set of Kaun Banega Crorepati Season 15. Recently, he gave his running task a twist! Instead of running in comfortable pants, he chose to run in a ‘veshti’.

On microblogging site X, the Sholay (1975) actor said, “Who says that one cannot run wearing 'Mundu', i.e. veshti!” Minutes later, Amitabh Bachchan on his blog expressed in detail how he feels to celebrate the occasion of Ganesh Chaturthi on the set of Kaun Banega Crorepati.
“It is the season of festivity... of Navratri... of celebration... of bringing together the variety of our ‘sanskaar’ of our age-old traditions and beliefs... and in keeping with the diversity but in its unity... we design the KBC with the different traditional wear from each part of the country... and for me the 'veshti’ the traditional wear of Kerala... a moment of pride and joy,” wrote Big B on his blog.
He adds, “May there be peace and love and all the goodness to prevail on this celebratory day of the Ganapati sthapana... May HE keep us under his care and keep us protected ever... and bless us all. Love and wishes.”
