"Amitabh Bachchan has achieved many a milestone in cultural and social fields and if he becomes president, it will fetch a good name for the country," said Mr Sinha, who has worked with the star in many successful movies.

In reply to a question that Mr Bachchan has favoured Mr Sinha's name for the president's post, the second term BJP Lok Sabha member from Patna Sahib, said "it's his greatness. But, I will be happy if he graces the chair of President after Pranab Mukherjee."

Mr Sinha and Big B have worked in Bollywood hits like Kaala Pathar, Dostana and Shaan.
