Mumbai, 18 Jan., 2012

In a show of true Indian hospitality Bollywood legend Amitabh Bachchan, despite having umpteen chauffers at his beck and call, himself drove the world famous Talk Show Queen Oprah Winfrey to the party organized to felicitate her, here on 16th Jan, Monday night.

As soon as Oprah Winfrey stepped into the Bollywood capital, her first visit was to the famous Bachchan abode ‘Jalsa’ to meet and bless Abhishek and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s two month old daughter, nicknamed Beti B.

(UPDATE: Later Oprah is said to have gushed about Abhi-Ash's 'Beti B' about whom she just couldn't get over with. “She is gorgeous, even with her eyes closed,” declared Oprah. The talk show queen even reportedly called her ‘Princess’.

When someone told her she turned Amitabh Bachchan, the biggest star in the country, a chauffeur, she brushed it aside and said, “I don’t know about that but it was great to see the way he was holding the baby in his arms.”)

57-year old Winfrey spent nearly an hour at the Mega Stars’ residence, after which she was seen going off in the car with Abhishek in the passenger seat and Aishwarya and herself in the rear. Oprah Winfrey was seen draped in an orange shimmering sari for the outing.

It may be recalled that both Abishek and Aishwarya had been guests on Winfrey's TV show before it ended last year. The Bachchan family had given Oprah Winfrey an invite to visit them whenever she decided to come down to India.

It is understood that Big B as senior Bachchan is often called, was said to be truly over-whelmed to meet Oprah and seemed very eager to drive her personally to different celebrities in the city particularly to socialite Parmeshwar Godrej’s bungalow, where an star-studded party was arranged in honor of Oprah Winfrey.

An extremely elated Big B tweeted post the party "The gracious Oprah Winfrey visits our home, to meet us and bless the baby...warm hearted, her to party in her honour. And Oprah in sari...looking lovely!!"

Meanwhile even Oprah after attending the party at Parmeshwar Godrej’s place tweeted "Was so great meeting you and all the beautiful Bollywooders, Directors, poets, screenwriters, what a nite!"

This is Oprah Winfrey’s first visit to the land of Gandhi - India. She will next be attending the Jaipur Literature Festival acompanied by spiritual guru Deepak Chopra. She is basically here to shoot for “Next Chapter” her latest show, as part of which she will be traveling world-wide taking interviews of celebrities.
