Praises flooded in for the superstar:

Amitabh Bachchan also shared his experience of his train singing session on his blog.

“Saurabh Nimbkar, sitting to my left in the picture, that came on our show #AKRHZ .. plays the guitar and sings on local trains and collects the meagre money he gets from co passengers, to distribute to the less fortunate cancer patients and their families, in the city .. his story was heart breaking .. I felt I would want to sit by him and travel the distance he does, do what he does, in a show of support and spirit for his incredible thinking ..”

Big B also clarified that he did not undertake this exercise as part of any publicity stunt.

“The idea is not to create a splash among the media, or to create credible content for them, or for the subsequent promotion of the show #AKRHZ .. the idea is to let him know that he is not alone .. that he is appreciated .. that our support runs even after he departs from the Show .. to hope that many others would feel the same way as we did when we heard his story .. and perhaps that it may sufficiently light a small flame of hope for many other deeds that need to be done ..,” he wrote.

Adding further, “It was executed quietly without Saurabh’s knowledge .. as a surprise for him and for the many that travel daily with him ..”
