Amitabh Bachchan carries the London Torch

Bollywood Superstar Amitabh Bachchan carried the Olympic 2012 Torch in London at Southwark this morning. On the 69th day of the Olympic relay,  69 year old Big B in a white tracksuit, covered the 300 meters distance as the crowd cheered the star. Celebs like Abhishek Bachchan, Anil Kapoor and  Karan Johar have already confirmed to attend the Olympics, which will be held from 27th July to 12th August in London.

The streets were packed with people cheering and taking pictures as the “Big B” jogged past.
“Faced many situations where enormity of crowd and its response was unbelievable. But today with Olympic torch it was indescribable,” he tweeted afterwards.
“It is not a flame you hold, it is the pride of 1.25 billion people of India. “In times when humanity tears each other apart, it was special to be in an event that brought communities together… beyond all else.”
