Shilpa Shetty Kundra and Luke Courunho's book launch was a starry affair with the presence of Amitabh Bachchan, Anil Kapoor, Varun Dhawan, R. Madhwan and others. However, there was a funnily awkward moment during the event.

It so happened that Anil Kapoor, Varun Dhawan, Luke Coutinho & Shilpa Shetty were already on stage when Amitabh Bachchan was called. Only the right corner seat was vacant and Big B, after greeting everyone on stage, sat on that chair. Even after being insisted to take the center seat by everyone on stage and the videographers, Amitabh chose to remain seated on that corner seat.

At this very moment, Anil Kapoor took the center seat and said jokingly, "I won't miss this opportunity." This got everyone laughing and the event proceeded.

It might sound clichéd but in a way, Big B's loss was Anil's gain. Hai na?
