Seconds of fame

The actor indirectly ended up becoming the talking point at the  Bachchan family press conference to celebrate the latest addition to their family, Beti B, when journalists were distributed DVDs of his co-production ‘Watch Indian Circus’ right outside the Bachchan residence. 

Journalists who had gathered at a Juhu hotel for the DVD launch the of Vivek’s home production, had to cut short their interaction to rush to Jalsa, the Bachchans’ residence, where the press meet was being held.

The DVDs had not arrived by then but most of the mediapersons were not willing to wait.  
 At Jalsa, just when Amitabh and Abhishek were meeting and greeting the media, an SMS was sent out from Vivek’s event manager. A journalist present on the occasion said, “In the middle of the Bachchan event, we got a call and SMS from the organisers of the Vivek event asking us to come out and collect the DVDs of ‘Watch Indian Circus’.” 

Needless to say, the journalists were pretty shocked and somewhat amused at the bizarre coincidence. When some of them did step out of Jalsa eventually, there was a man waiting there with a boxful of Vivek’s DVDs.
