Oprah Winfrey & Amitabh BachchanThe International talk show host queen Oprah Winfrey has made a visit to the Bachchan’s residence Jalsa in Juhu to meet the Abhishek and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s new born baby girl, fondly called as ‘Beti B’. She entered the house at 8:15 pm and left with the Bachchans for the party in their Rolls Royce, driven by superstar Amitabh Bachchan himself, at 9:30 pm. Big B tweeted, “The gracious Oprah Winfrey visits our home, to meet us and bless the baby..warm hearted, endearing … drive her to party in her honor.”

For Aishwarya and Oprah, this was more of a catching-up session, as Ash has appeared on Winfrey’s chat show twice – in 2005 and then again in 2009. Aishwarya was the first Bollywood star to appear on Oprah’s “Women Across the Globe” segment.

Oprah Winfrey has come to India for week-long visit to shoot her new show “Next Chapter”, which will see Winfrey traveling around the world and interviewing celebrities.

The International talk show host landed in Mumbai yesterday in the morning at 8:30am. She checked into The Taj Mahal Palace at Colaba where she was greeted with a garland and aarti. She was welcomed with a special performance by nine visually-challenged boys aged 8-16 from Happy Home school, who sang the song Swagatam for her. Oprah was very touched with their performance. Before heading to socialite Parmeshwar Godrej’s house where a party was organised in her honour, the 57-year-old iconic chat show host visited Bachchan residence.

Oprah’s ‘Next Chapter’ is the next edition of her famous talk show in which she will travel around the world interviewing celebrities, newsmakers and others. The Philanthropist is also expected to visit the city’s slums today.
