Mr Bachchan, who's been up watching the football every night, tweeted:
T 1153 - Unbelievable Dutch v Spain .. 5 goals v one !! True revenge of the last world cup final !!-- Amitabh Bachchan (@SrBachchan) June 13, 2014
Of the five Dutch goals, Robin van Persie and Arjen Robben scored two apiece with Stefan De Vrij getting in the fifth, handing Spain it's worse defeat ever since a 6-2 loss to Scotland in 1963.
Mr Bachchan was thrilled by the Oranje goals:
