Mumbai: Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan, who is known for hosting lavish Diwali parties at his home in the Juhu area of Mumbai, attended instead the Diwali-eve party of his friend and producer, Anand Pandit, right after his 'Kaun Banega Crorepati' shoot.

Pandit ensured that it was a curated group for the legend and the party lit up as Big B walked into the Pandit residence. Anand Pandit looked visibly emotional when Big B arrived.

"He was overwhelmed and deeply touched by his gesture proving that he is a friend who never forgets his friends," a source shared.

For Big B who was not even seen at his own film promotions or any other parties throughout the year, this is a departure from tradition as he is attending a party.

Anand Pandit and Big B have worked together in multiple films. Sources indicate that Big B also has a business interest in Pandit's real estate company.
