Amitabh Bachchan is a true legend who loves working with the new generation of B-Town’s famous actors like Deepika Padukone in ‘Piku‘ or with Katrina Kaif in the upcoming Aamir-Khan starer ‘Thugs of Hindostan‘. The 74-year-old actor not only enjoys massive popularity amongst fans, but also has a good rapport with his co-stars. And actress Juhi Chawla is one of them.
One can’t forget how Big B famously reminded Anushka Sharma that he had wished her on her birthday but she failed to respond back!
@AnushkaSharma .. Anushka .. this is Amitabh Bachchan @Srbachchan .. wished you on May 1st via sms .. no response .. checked they said you changed number .. sent greetings again .. love and wishes .. you looked radiant at the IPL game last night 🌹🌹🌹🙏

While it’s clear that Amitabh Bachchan has a huge fan following (34m Twitter followers), there’s one star-struck fan we love – the 80s bubbly actress Juhi Chawla. Her team Kolkata Knight Riders exited the IPL season but she took it in good stride!
Big B’s performance in his latest ‘102 Not Out‘ was appreciated by many. No doubt, Amitabh Bachchan’s funny character with Rishi Kapoor was noticed by all – specially Juhi Chawla.
After enjoying his performance, Juhi sent him a carton of mangoes, which truly touched the star. In return, he wrote a handwritten ‘Hindi’ note to her. Juhi Chawla, who is very active on social media, was quick to post about it.

Her tweet was clear that she didn’t understand what Amitabh Bachchan wrote and was left innocently confused about it! Chawla’s tweet also had a picture for her fans:
But as soon as Juhi Chawla’s tweet got posted, veteran actor Anupam Kher stepped in. He took action and read Juhi Chawla’s tweet carefully. What he next did, is what what legends are all about!
Anupam Kher decided to aid Juhi and took the matter in his own hands to explain what Big B meant. Here’s what he said in response to Juhi Chawla’s tweet asking for clarity:

Mr Kher not only clarified Juhi’s query but asked her for a mangoes carton for himself, just like she sent to Amitabh Bachchan! This was definitely more than what Juhi expected right?
By now Juhi Chawla’s tweet turned into something more sweeter between two old friends, and she had to respond back to him – which she did in her style:
Aap toh kalakaar nikle …!! 😂👇Zaroor ….peti toh banti hai …!!! 👍👍👍😁😁😁🤣🤣… peti is on the way …!!! 🤣🤣🤣🤣🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏 https://t.co/pT7NfI1wpY

This sweet Twitter exchange between Juhi Chawla and Anupam Kher was too adorable to handle and Tweeple soon joined in the fun. Here are some of the reactions:

Meanwhile, we still remember when Juhi Chawla and Amitabh Bachchan paired in the 2008 movie “Bhoothnath” and when Juhi mesmerised us with her vocals in one of the songs in the film:
On the professional front, Anupam Kher will be seen in debutante director Vijay Ratnakar Gutte’s drama movie ‘The Accidental Prime Minister’. Juhi Chawla is busy promoting social awareness programmes, with the latest being #BeatPlasticPollution.
