MUMBAI—Riding high on the success of his latest outing with Rishi Kapoor, Amitabh Bachchan surprised his fans by unleashing the festive beats of his hit number “Badumbaa” at his residence.

Every Sunday, Bachchan meets his fans and well-wishers, who gather outside Jalsa, his residence. However, while all the fans were more than happy with his trademark wave of the hand, they were in for a surprise when he broke into a dance! The atmosphere was electric as his fans jived to the tune and matched the energy of the song composed and sung by their screen idol. This was his expression of gratitude to them for showering “102 Not Out” with love and success. Incidentally, the lyrics have been written by another ‘Amitabh B’—today’s leading lyricist Amitabh Bhattacharya. This is their first-ever on-screen collaboration.

“Badumbaa,” a promotional song, has been added now to the film on popular demand and the Sunday ritual’s surprise made it all the more special for thousands of his fans who had gathered in front of his house and also watched the live proceedings on social media platforms Facebook and Instagram.
