Melody Queen Lata Mangeshkar was left teary-eyed after hearing Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan’s parting lines during the season finale episode of the eighth season of ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’.
The 85-year-old singer praised the gaming reality show and the host.
“Namaskar. I was watching the last episode of ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’… the show was very nice. Like always Amit ji made the episode brilliant. He ended the show with a few lines- ‘mohobbat karnewale kam na honge, teri mehfil mein lekin hum na honge’. The moment he recited the lines, my eyes were filled with tears,” Mangeshkar posted on Twitter.
The legendary singer said that she has a very special place for Bachchan, 72, in her heart.
“Amit ji I have a very special place in my heart for you. I respect you a lot. I pray to god that he keeps you happy, healthy and may you have a long life,” she further tweeted.
Bachchan, who is currently shooting for Shoojit Sircar’s ‘Piku’ in Kolkata, was overwhelmed by Mangeshkar’s tweets and thanked her for the kind words.
“Lata ji… I am at a loss for words. I don’t know how to thank you enough. I am grateful for your blessings,” Bachchan posted.
