New Delhi: He may be the biggest star of Bollywood, but Amitabh Bachchan is facing tough competition from 16-year-old singer Justin Bieber in terms of popularity among his grandchildren.

The 67-year-old actor was in London visiting his daughter Shweta Bachchan Nanda`s two kids - Navya and Agastya- and found out that they were huge fans of the teen pop sensation.

"...their latest music idol - Justin Bebier or some such name, a 16 year old kid sensation, that had a 80,000 packed Wembley Stadium screaming their lungs out at a recent concert; Navya and Agastya being among the crowd!!(sic)," wrote Bachchan on his blog.

The `Hum` star tried to recount his own experience of performing at the Jumma Chumma Concert in the British capital in 1989/90, but the kids were hardly interested.

"I cuddle the two GC and boast about their Nana doing the same at a concert in 1989/90 - the Jumma Chumma Concert, and they do not pay much attention to it. `But Nana ??!!! This is JUSTIIINNN ..!!!` And I realize that obviously Justin has a
greater place in their lives than ol` Nani Nana!!(sic)," Bachchan wrote.
