Megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who has been discharged from hospital on August 2 after testing negative, thanked dairy brand Amul for paying tribute to him with a doodle. Big B was admitted for almost 25 days so he got a special homecoming gift. Amul celebrated the COVID-19 recovery of legendary actor and posted a topical titled ‘Homecoming gift’ featuring Bachchan sitting on a sofa and holding a mobile phone with the famous Amul Girl standing right next to him. The caricature showcases Big B showing thumbs up. The doodle carries the caption “AB beats C”.
The poster also showcases a table aside from the recliner that shows the iconic Amul butter smeared on bread slices. Amitabh Bachchan is seen sporting traditional kurta and a shawl. “#Amul Topical: Amitabh Bachchan returns home from the hospital!,” tweeted Amul with the cartoon.
To which the megastar replied, “Thank you AMUL for continuously thinking of me in your unique poster campaigns .. varshon se amul ne sammaanit kiya hai mujhe , ek saadhaaran shaqsiyat ko ‘amoolya’ bana diya tumne! (along with folded hands emoji).
On Sunday the Sholay actor, who has been updating his fans about the health since he was admitted, said that he tested negative for COVID-19 and was going home. He was admitted at Mumbai’s Nanavati Hospital, where had been admitted along with son Abhishek Bachchan on July 11, after testing positive for the virus.
