Mumbai, Nov 9

Megastar Amitabh Bachchan says he practices what he preaches and took his granddaughter Aaradhya for polio drops.

"Two drops of the polio vaccine to Aaradhya... overseen by government officials. Just so it is put on record. To practice what I preach," Amitabh tweeted Thursday night.

The 70-year-old veteran is an active spokesperson for the government's polio eradication campaign.

Aaradhya, daughter of Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai, got her first drops in April this year. The toddler will turn one Nov 16.

Amitabh says the procedure "went well", and suggests it is not at all painful for children.

"The little one does not get an injection... it is just literally two drops of the polio vaccine into their mouths. Went off well," he added.

Neil, Imran 'eyeing' the brands?

Neil Nitin Mukesh-starrer "David" and Imran Khan's "Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola" are expected to clash at the box office in January 2013, and if the grapevine is to be believed, the two actors are also in the race to be the face of an eyewear brand.

The brand is considering both to endorse it for an edgy campaign, and officials will soon decide on one of them for their campaign which rolls out early next year, said a source.

While Imran's rustic look for Vishal Bhardwaj's directorial "Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola" is already out, there is a lot of intrigue and speculation about Neil's look in Bejoy Nambiar-directed "David".

"Delhi's traffic is terrific. Each time we come from airport to the city, Vasant Vihar road is always blocked. Flyover should be widened to ease that," tweeted Kher.

Diwali falls Nov 13 this year.
