Kiccha revealed that he spent a lot of time in Mumbai in 1996 and 1997, during the time he didn’t have enough money and would walk the streets of Mumbai so he remembers them well even 25 years later. The two places he often used to visit were Churchgate and Jalsa. While passing by Big B’s bungalow he added, “He was our superhero. Before all Superman, Spiderman, and Avengers came Amitabh-ji was our superhero. Back in our village, there used to be a huge line outside theatres after his film was released. We didn’t understand Hindi that much but we loved watching the action scenes and listening to his voice even if we didn’t know why they were fighting or singing. We used to enjoy it a lot.”

“I don’t think it would be wrong to say this that majorly in south people learned Hindi for Kishor Kumar’s song and Amitabh Bachchan’s movies. Both of them together have taught me Hindi. People wanted to know what they were singing it was beautiful, and to understand Amitabh-ji’s dialogues. Hindi wasn’t even our third language.” He also revealed that when he used to stay in Mumbai, he told people back home that he was Amitabh Bachchan’s neighbour.
