When Amitabh Bachchan met David and Samantha

Bollywood legend Amitabh Bachchan was the guest of honour at a reception hosted by British Prime Minister David Cameron's wife, Samantha Cameron at 10 Downing Street for a charity initiative for diabetes.

The reception, held at the home to the British Prime Minister for over 275 years, was to mark the sixth anniversary of the Leicester-based charity 'Silver Star', founded by Keith Vaz MP.

The Bollywood veteran posted the pictures with the British prime minister and his wife on Facebook.

This is not the first time Bachchan has supported the charity.

Last year, on the occasion of his 70th Birthday, Silver Star gave Amitabh a unique birthday present of a Mobile Diabetes Unit for the city of Mumbai.

The unit, which travels to the city's most disadvantaged areas giving free diabetes tests, was named 'Amitabh' in recognition of his support.

Launched in 2007, Silver Star is a charity that campaigns to raise awareness of diabetes.

The charity has four Mobile Diabetes Units that carry out important diabetes testing and provide lifestyle and dietary advice.

At the reception the charity announced plans for a 5th mobile unit for Birmingham in the West Midlands and a 6th for Delhi, to be named after Amitabh's father and launched in 2014.

Prime Minister, David Cameron was also present at the reception among other notable supporters of the charity including the American civil rights leader Reverend Jesse Jackson who is in London to mark the 50th Anniversary of the I have a dream Martin Luther King speech.
