News agency PTI quoted Gopi Sheth wherein the engineer confessed that Amitabh Bachchan is like a God to him and his wife. Speaking about his love for the Sarkar actor, he said, "He is nothing less than a god to me and my wife. The biggest thing that inspires me about him is not only his reel life but also his real-life - how he manages himself in public, how he conveys and communicates; everything you know. He is very down-to-earth. He takes care of his fans. He is not like so many other stars. This is why I thought I should have his status outside of my house.”

In the statement, he also revealed that Amitabh Bachchan was aware of this tribute, but the megastar had maintained that he didn’t deserve this kind of treatment. Besides the statue, Gopi Seth also runs a website, which is a fan page of the KBC host, called www.BigBEfamily.com.
