Mumbai: Megastar Amitabh Bachchan describes cricketing legend Sunil Gavaskar as one of the most entertaining people ever and says he is the pride of India.
"Just had the great honour of felicitating dear friend and sporting icon, Sunil Gasvakar... A great son of India... Privileged," the 70-year-old actor tweeted.
"Sunil Gavaskar as gracious and as entertaining as ever. He is a great mimic among many other special attributes he possesses, and had the entire audience in splits," he added.
