Now that Abhishek Bachchan has associated himself with kabaddi, the actor shares his first encounter with the game. “My first memory of kabaddi, since I’m a film industry kid, was watching Ganga Ki Saugandh and watching my father play kabaddi in it,” says junior Bachchan. Interestingly, it was also Big B who taught him to play the sport. “When I was a child, my father and I would play kabaddi in our garden with my cousins. I think most Indians have played the game. I’ve always been a sportsman while in school and college, and participated in all the sports,” shares AB.
Vidya Balan who calls herself a ‘vegetarian forever’ says that forget about fish and chicken, she cannot even bring herself to eat an egg! “I tried eating eggs for a long time.

And at the end of the day would not have it at all,” chuckled the actress.
