It isn't the first and it definitely won't be the last. Fans can go to any length to get within striking distance of their star.

For decades, Amitabh Bachchan has seen various kind of people flock outside his bungalow to get a glimpse of him. Only a few have been lucky to get close to him.

On Sunday afternoon a man climbed the wall of Bachchan's Juhu's residence Jalsa and sneaked into the bungalow. Unfortunately, his theatrics led to the man being arrested by the Juhu police who booked him for criminal trespass under section 447 of the Indian Penal Code.

The man was later identified as Bullet Banwari Lal Yadav who lives in Pune and is originally from Bihar. Yadav revealed that he wanted to meet Bachchan so that he could sing a Bhojpuri song for him.

Unfortunately, this gate-crashing did not have the desired effect. Not only did he not get to see Bachchan, but he also ended up in the lock-up. And that certainly won't be music to Big B's ears.
