A visit to Brazil is incomplete without two things: watching a football match and visiting the awesome Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio De Janeiro. Amitabh Bachchan did both and more on his visit to the South American nation.
Amitabh Bachchan along with Abhishek Bachchan was in Brazil to watch the FIFA world cup finals. The 71-year-old superstar made his first ever visit to Rio and was bowled over by the giant statue of Christ the Redeemer, a major tourist attraction and a site of reverence for the Brazilians.
“I won the World Cup 2014 !!!... so help me Christ .. Christo the Redeemer in Rio,” Big B tweeted and shared a couple of photos.
In fact, the megastar was smitten with Rio the moment he landed there.
“Landed Rio de Janeiro ..the WC14 Final .. there is a romanticism to the city .. first time here .. and certainly not the last !!” he had tweeted upon his arriving in Rio.
During his stay, Amitabh Bachchan reveled in the football fever gripping the nation. He visited the Copacabana beach fest and watched the semifinals and the final.
Later, he posed with arms outstretched like Christ the Redeemer.
