Magic Johnson is Abhishek Bachchan’s fan!

Mumbai: April 04, 2011 – If Abhishek Bachchan has one idol besides his dad Amitabh Bachchan, it’s the basketball legend Magic Johnson. Imagine his surprise when he got to know that Johnson too shared the sentiment, and was Abhishek’s fan!

Not too many people know this, but Abhishek’s most prized possessions are two jerseys signed personally by Johnson.

Such is Junior Bachchan’s undying affinity to Magic Johnson’s magic, that the joke at the Bachchan residence Jalsa is that give Abhishek an Amitabh Bachchan classic and a recording of a Magic Johnson game, and you’ve lost him for the whole day.
Abhishek, when he got to know about Johnson being on micro-blogging site Twitter, was persuaded by those close to him to tweet to his childhood idol.

Says a source close to Abhishek: “At first, Abhishek was hesitant. He is never demonstrative about his likes and dislikes. He kept agonising over whether he should let Magic Johnson know on Twitter about what a fan he is. Finally, Aishwarya convinced him to go for it. Abhishek tweeted a simple message to Johnson saying what a fan he is.”

To Abhishek’s surprise, Magic Johnson tweeted back saying he is a fan of Abhishek’s!

Says the source: “Abhishek still can’t believe Magic Johnson tweeted back saying he is a fan. He has been pinching himself and bragging to all his friends about the compliment. The two Magic Johnson jerseys are out of the cupboard again.”

Abhishek was so thrilled he threw an impromptu party for all his close friends.

Still sounding zapped, Abhishek says: “I’ve been a fan…no, a fanatic of Magic Johnson from childhood. To get such a complimentary tweet from him in reply to my tweet is a dream come true. You have to excuse me now, I’ve to go back to iron my two most prized possessions, the Johnson jerseys.”(
