So guess what the senior Bachchan does? He dials Hema’s number and makes Jyotsana speak to her. He even asks her tumhara naam kya hai Basanti? in true Sholay style. For this, Hema is unable to control her laughter.

Next to take the hot seat is a very talented contestant from Gujarat — Dhaval Virani who is also a stand-up comedian. He tickles Amitabh’s funny bone and also entertains the audience. He is so funny that Big B can’t stop laughing. Tune in to the show for more such exciting moments.

A weird world
HBO presents ‘Shutter Island’ on August 23 at 9 pm. The movie stars Leonardo Dicaprio, Mark Ruffalo and Ben Kingsley. It’s 1954 and up-and-coming US marshal Teddy Daniels is assigned to investigate the disappearance of a patient from Boston’s Shutter Island Ashecliffe Hospital.

He has been pushing for an assignment on the island for personal reasons but before long, he wonders whether he hasn’t been brought there as part of a twisted plot by hospital doctors whose radical treatments range from unethical to illegal to downright sinister.

Teddy’s shrewd investigating skills provide a promising lead but the hospital refuses him access to records he suspects would break the case wide open. As a hurricane cuts off communication with the mainland, more dangerous criminals escape in confusion and the puzzling, improbable clues multiply. Teddy begins to doubt everything — his memory, his partner and his own sanity.
