Only a handful of people experience the golden opportunity of receiving royal invitation from Queen Elizabeth II of England. One such lucky personality is Bollywood’s megastar Amitabh Bachchan. Queen Elizabeth II invited Big B to be a part of event at Buckingham palace. The invitations are rare one and not everyone get a chance to be invited from Royal Queen of London. What was so special about the programme that Amitabh Bachchan was invited?

The Duke Of Edinburgh will host the UK-India Year of Culture launch at the Buckingham Palace on coming Monday for which Big B was invited. Queen Elizabeth II, aged 90, is the longest-reigning British monarch who wished to host a joint cultural event to strengthen relations between the two countries.
Amitabh Bachchan declined Queen Elizabeth II invitation. Pink actor Amitabh extended his regret for not being able to make for such special event. According to a Mid-Day source, “Prior commitments are making it impossible for him to fly to London for the gala. He has already extended his regret to the invitation, citing pre-scheduled commitments, but is honoured to receive a special invite from Buckingham Palace.”
The publicist of Big B confirmed to Mid-day, “Yes, Mr Bachchan has been extended a rare invitation by Queen Elizabeth and Buckingham Palace to grace the UK-India Cultural Year reception. Unfortunately, however, he will be unable to attend due to prior commitments.”
What is Amitabh Bachchan busy with, that he had to turn down the royal invitation? Piku actor’s busy schedule includes Ramgopal Verma’s Sarkar 3 trailer launch and would soon start shooting for Kabir Khan’s production Thugs of Hindostan. Amitabh have also signed with Ayan Mukerji’s tentatively titled as Dragon and Gaurang Doshi’s Aankhen 2.
Big B’s schedule is damn tight and have got big banner projects in his pipeline. I believe no one could beat Amitabh Bachchan’s energy and dedication.
