Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan has offered to become brand ambassador for Gujarat. On the sidelines of a special screening of his film ‘Paa’ with Chief Minister Shri Narendra Modi at a multiplex in Gandhinagar on Wednesday, Big B told mediapersons, 'There are lots of good things in Gujarat which should be promoted. I am ready to give my voice and face for the promotion of Gujarat tourism.'

On the day Samajwadi Party’s national general secretary Amar Singh resigned from all party posts, Bachchan, who is his friend and Uttar Pradesh’s former brand ambassador, said he was not aware of Singh’s resignation.

Earlier, Big B gifted Narendra Modi Modi a copy of ‘Madhushala’ (A tavern), a collection of quatrains by his late father Harivansh Rai Bachchan.

Bachchan said, 'The main motive of my visit is to promote my film ‘Paa’ which deals with many sensitive issues and I wish Gujarat government makes the film tax free'.

Narendra Modi thanked Mr. Bachchan for his offer to promote Gujarat tourism and said Hindi films were a major influence on Indian society. Calling Big B the 'Mahanayak' of this phenomenon,  Shri Narendra Modi said, 'I myself am influenced by Mr. Bachchan, after all I am a common man'.

Big B, clad in black Jodhpuris, was very diplomatic when media asked him, 'Do you think Modi is Big B of politics?' He said, 'I can’t compare myself with  Shri Narendra Modi. Inke baare main kya bolu. (what can I say about this man )' which left Shri Narendra Modi blushing. 'He is doing a good job as a chief minister in Gujarat. His efforts are commendable,' he said.
