MUMBAI—Aahana Kumra, who has worked with the legendary actor Amitabh Bachchan, is known to be close to the legendary star. The young actress, who had got the chance to play his daughter in Sony TV’s “Yudh,” has time and again expressed her love for the senior actor and has said that he is like a mentor in her life.

So when Kumra got a special request from her friend to fix a meeting for his 98-year-old great-grandmother with her favorite star, she swiftly took up the onus. Amidst her plays and other commitments, the actress took time off to arrange a meeting, and though she could not be a part of it, she made sure her friend’s granny fulfilled her desire.

“I am privileged to get a chance to work with Amitabh-sir. He is one of the sweetest and most kind-hearted gentlemen you will meet,” gushed Kumra. “When I got a call from my friend, that his great grandmother’s only desire was to meet Amit-Ji, I immediately spoke to his team and got it arranged. Amit-Ji was so humble that he immediately gave time for the meeting. We must learn from his humility and the love he spreads. I am glad that I could do this for my friend.”
