Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s gift to Big B is one ‘gift’ that has stayed for long in public memory. In a publicized event of sorts, filmmaker Vidhu Vinod Chopra gifted a Rolls Royce Phantom to Amitabh Bachchan for his performance in the film Eklavya. What followed however, was an altogether different story.

Soon after Chopra’s flashy gift to Big B, news of Big B returning the same to the showroom the next day appeared. If that wasn’t all, this ‘gimmick’ was seen as a way of waiving off taxes. According to reports Big B charged just a rupee for Eklavya and hence, Chopra gave him this extremely expensive gift.

Filmmaker Karan Johar, who is known for making larger-than-life films for the big screen, is a man with a big heart. We know that because the celebrity director apparently gifted nothing less than an extravagant Ferrari to actress Katrina Kaif. The story that went around this big gift by the filmmaker is that Karan Johar asked Katrina Kaif to do an item number in his film Agneepath.

The actress agreed and reportedly refused to charge anything for the same. So overwhelmed was Karan by this gesture that he apparently decided to return the favor and gift something to the beautiful actress. Karan is believed to have gifted Katrina a Ferrari for shaking a leg to ‘Chikni Chameli.’
