She made the revelation during the shooting of UTV Stars' "Live My Life 2".
"She confessed on the show that she is a huge fan of Amitabh Bachchan and pleaded the production team to let her live his life for an entire day, on the show," said a source.
Meanwhile, she was happy to make 20-year-old Sumit, one of her fans, feel special by letting him be in her shoes for 24 hours as part of the show.
As part of his itinerary, Sumit met Chitrangada's close friend, filmmaker Sudhir Mishra, her stylist, Rick Roy and her physical trainer.
Mishra, who directed the actress in her debut film "Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi", spoke about how she was chosen for the role. However, the highlight of his day for Sumit was a surprise visit by Chitrangada herself.
After being informed that she wouldn't be able to meet him, Chitrangada dropped in to surprise the fan in his hotel room.
The episode featuring Chitrangada, whose next movie is "Inkaar(2013)", will go on air Sunday.
