Impressed by his mimicry acts at the recent felicitation function for Chief Minister M Karunanidhi, Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan, who was the chief guest at the event, has invited Chinni Jayanth to replay his spoof in Mumbai.
The Big B contacted Chinni through veteran producer-director Ramanathan, and asked him to host a similar programme (a spoof of Kaun Banega Crorepathi) in the business capital of India.
Says Chinni, “Amitabh was all praises for me at the CM function. He had enquired Kamal Haasan about me. And he called me at the end of the event, hugged and appreciated my work.”
The actor adds: “Ramanathan told me that Amitabh shared what he enjoyed about the Tamil skit.
