Bansal’s mobile underway ringing as soon as Bachchan gave out the 1st nine digits of the number. Bansal claimed thus far, he had received about 10,000 calls from the US, UK, Hong Kong and Thailand alone. He has also had callers from Pune, Lucknow, Mumbai, Delhi and Ahmedabad.
Bansal sent a legal notice to Big B and KBC on Friday. Bansal said that “Initially, I was at a loss… But on September 12, when a caller told me he wanted to talk to Amitabh Bachchan and that Big B had given the number during KBC, I understood.”
Bansal has stopped taking calls but after that he has some 2,500 SMSes. “Amitabhji please talk to me”, “I love you, Amitabh”… it goes on.
