Amitabh Bachchan Visits Our Campus!

There are movie stars. There are mega stars. And then there’s Amitabh Bachchan. Bollywood’s “Big B” visited the La Trobe University campus last week to present La Trobe University’s inagural Shri Amitabh Bachchan PhD Scholarship. The recipient, Roshan Kumar, will be researching the use of social media in India’s healthcare industry.

Amitabh ji spoke very well about the role of social media in his own life and career. And then stopped by the lounge for Australian morning coffee time.

I had a chance to speak with him. His Hindi is simply beautiful, of course! And we chatted about his father’s writing.

And, I can’t help it, I was really star struck, and he agreed to a selfie:
