He said: "Bahot jaldi khatam kar diya khel ko (Ended the game too soon)". This was followed by his popular song 'Kabhi Kabhi Mere Dil Mein Khayaal Aata Hai' in the background as Abhishek entered and hugged Bachchan. This made him emotional and teary-eyed.

The angry young man of the film industry, born on October 11, 1942, has many times portrayed a revengeful character on the celluloid.
