Mumbai, December 3, 2009 :It was ‘back to school’ at the Radio Mirchi office as thirteen year old Auro aka Amitabh Bachchan came visiting and found sporting Mirchi employees dressed up as his classmates from school!
Big B was at the studio to speak to the listeners of Hi Mumbai on Radio Mirchi 98.3 FM as Auro, the character he plays in upcoming film ‘Paa’.
Auro, who was on the show with his screen mother, actress Vidya Balan, requested RJ Sangeeta in his innocent yet mischievous tone to not let his paa know that he was bunking school to be on radio! After Sangeeta agreed to do so, what followed was a half an hour saga of cute Auro’s sweet and naive talks about himself, his family and his dislike for girls!
He confessed to Sangeeta that he loves Mirchi!!! He said “I love mirchi in my khichdi but mummy does not allow me to have it”, to which Vidya promptly replied, “Which is why I have brought you to Mirchi….. Radio Mirchi!” He said that amongst other things, he also loves his monkey, chocolates, his PSP and his best friend Vishnu.
While speaking about his family, Sangeeta and Vidya were in splits when they asked Auro what his mother does and he innocently replied saying “She makes babies… all the time, she is making babies!” He then explained that she was a gynaecologist and his father was a politician.
When one of the listeners asked him what his name means and why was he named Auro, he sweetly replied saying Auro because Auro, thats what my paa calls me! His mummy Vidya then clarified that she named her son so because “woh auro se alag hai”
Paa is certainly being considered as the next big release, a must watch for all but what the Radio Mirchi employees witnessed was a once in a lifetime opportunity, the enthusiastic and loving Mr Bachchan also did the famous monkey dance for all his fans at the Mirchi office!
Tune into Radio Mirchi 98.3 FM to get a feel of Auro’s naughtiness and antics and Paa’s soothing music with numbers like ‘mere paa’ and ‘mudi mudi’!
