Not for nothing is legendary Bollywood actor Amitabh Bachchan revered by millions of fans in India. Bachchan, known for his grace and courtesy, bowled over fans on Tuesday after he apologised to a disgruntled cartoonist for sharing his sketch without credit on Twitter.

The anonymous handle, @Roflindian, had sketched a tribute to RK Laxman who passed away on January 26, showing a weeping Common Man - an iconic creation of Laxman. Bachchan tweeted out the same image from his handle @SrBachchan hours later with no credit to the cartoonist.

This is how the events unfolded:

This tweet posted by @Roflindian paid tribute to Laxman.

After Bachchan tweeted it, @roflindian reacted.

But there was no immediate response from Bachchan.

Media sites also used Bachchan's tweet.

But fans gave Bachchan the benefit of doubt.

And then finally the man himself responded. The joy! Oh the joy!

And floored everyone with his grace.

Including the cartoonist.

And everyone else on the Internet.

That ended well.
