Woman receives calls from Amitabh's fans, threatens action

In TV show Kaun Banega Crorepati (KBC) on September 12, a contestant asked for the mega star's mobile number. Bachchan obliged to her request and revealed the number as 987730000, noticeably a nine-digit number.

This led to thousands of Big B fans across the globe calling on 9877300000, not 987730000, by adding another zero to make the latter a 10-digit number.

This number 9877300000 was being used by the sister of Puneet Bansal, an industrialist and resident of Mandi Gobindgarh town of district Fatehgarh Sahib.

Bansal told media persons today that they received thousands of calls on the night of September 12 not only from India but also from abroad.

Puneet said their family was mentally harassed.He said they also contacted mobile service provider in this regard but could not get immediate relief. The woman's family will now move court and serve notice to Bachchan
