The love from the contestant has drawn attention of veteran batman.

"Well played, Rajudas Rathod! Aapki baatein sun kar kaafi mazza aaya! I hope you didn't break more remotes. Promise we'll meet soon," tweeted Sachin after the show.

"From 1996, I have been watching cricket. I have been loving Sachin Tendulkar ever since. I used to go mad whenever Tendulkar scored a ton. However, whenever he gets out on 99, I used to be heartbroken for the next couple of days," Rathod said in conversation with Amitabh Bachchan.

"I used to sit in front of the TV one hour before a match started. I used to pray for Tendulkar before every match. Sachin is the reason for my joy and my pain," he added.

The show was first aired in 2000, changing the face of Indian television and giving Amitabh a new lease of life in showbiz.
