When 'Big B' Amitabh Bachchan made a polite request to Chris Gayle and the 'World Boss' declined

What happened when 'World Boss' Chris Gayle met Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan at his residence?

A rare photo op and a 'polite' request from Big B.

Gayle, who is in Mumbai for the semi-final against India on Thursday, was invited to the Bachchan bungalow. And judging from the subsequent social media posts, it was quite an eventful evening.

Bachchan, whom Gayle referred to as 'boss', gave a sneak-peek into the conversation by sharing a photograph of the two and tweeting: "Did not know he was a fan, was my politest best, hoping he would repay the compliment on Thursday IndvWI."

However, Gayle didn't seem to be in a mood to comply with *that* request.

"Thanks for the invite and hospitality at your home, thanks also for the books. The boss wants me to score a 100 and India win but I would take the win rather than the 100," the West Indies star batsmen wrote along with the same picture on his Instagram account.

Amitabh Bachchan's involvement in the ongoing ICC World Twenty20 has been has been very interesting both an on and off the field. On field, the Bollywood star sang the Indian National Anthem in the marquee match against Pakistan at Eden Gardens, Kolkata and off-field has been engaged in Twitter banter with England cricketer Andrew Flintoff.

Here's hoping that Big B's wish comes true and India win despite a Gayle storm.
