Well that's exactly what happened to the fans of Amitabh Bachchan who watched 102 Not Out yesterday at PVR Cinemas. Fans of Amitabh Bachchan were in for an extraordinary surprise as they not only got an opportunity to watch the film before the rest of the world, but also got a once in a lifetime opportunity to interact with the legendary actor through a Facebook Live stream.

A special contest was conducted on the film's social media pages and few lucky winners from Mumbai and Delhi were selected to watch 102 Not Out before it released worldwide. But the biggest surprise came when the film ended and the legend Amitabh Bachchan, for the first time ever, came on the silver screen for a live interaction with the audiences who just watched their film.
