The chair was purchased from the ‘AKS’ movie box. People pray every day for an ornate dark green chair. A glass is stored on that chair, holding the shoes that Amitabh had worn during the ‘Agneepath’ shoot. With a truckload of samosas, another fan who was a samosa vendor came up to Big B’s house and asked him to touch them once so that he could distribute them to his fans as ‘prasad.’
