Amitabh Bachchan carried the Olympic torch through Southwark

Amitabh Bachchan

Amid loud cheers from hundreds of his fans, Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan carried the Olympic torch at Southwark on 26JUL12, a day before the opening ceremony of the sporting spectacle. Bachchan is not the only celebrity to lend the Indian touch to the 2012 London Olympics. Indian music maestro A R Rahman teamed up with his ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ director Danny Boyle to compose a track for the inaugural event.

As a big Amitabh Bachchan fan, I had to at least make one post documenting his brief 300 meter jog through an area I used to live when I was studying in London!
