Guwahati, July 23, 2019:

Bollywood’s very own ‘Big B’, the inimitable superstar Amitabh Bachchan, has joined the long list of celebrities who have congratulated Assam’s ‘golden girl’ Hima Das after she bagged five international-level Gold medals within a month in the European continent.

However, the Big B’s congratulatory message was a bit ‘hatke’. The megastar retweeted a creative design of the Assam Police who had congratulated Hima on the day India launched its INR 1,000 Cr ‘Chandrayaan-2’ Moon Mission. Along with a creative with four gold medals with a striking similarity to the lunar body, along with the words: “Over the moon and beyond.”

It seems like the imaginative design of the Assam Police caught the fancy of Amitabh Bachchan, who, sharing the creative, wrote: “T 3233 – Hima Das .. the pride of India .. to the Moon and beyond .. indeed but we need to add another Moon for she has done 5 now .. AMAZING !!”

Later, the Big-B posted another tribute to Hima on his Twitter profile. “this is an incredible finish .. in the 400 meters to give that kind of a spurt in the last 15-20 meters is an IMPOSSIBLE FEAT ! AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING .. HIMA DAS .. you are something special .. !!”, he said.
