Mumbai: Chairman of Mahindra group Anand Mahindra and megastar Amitabh Bachchan engaged in banter over the 'Big B' epithet that the actor enjoys.

"With due apologies to Amitabh Bachchan, there is only one 'Big B' this week...and that's the Big Budget," Mahindra tweeted on Monday.

To this, Amitabh, who is lovingly referred to as the Big B of Bollywood, wrote: "Hahaha, Anand Mahindra. 'Big B' is a media created epithet, one that I have never subscribed to. The 'Big B' this week that you mention, will create media... that many shall subscribe to."

The Union Budget will be tabled on Friday.
