But of course, trolls wouldn’t be trolls if they didn’t attempt to pull down and deride all, and the legend has been no exception, with trolls taking potshots at him.
Recently when the veteran actor wished his fans ‘Good Morning’ on Facebook, several netizens trolled him for the late wish. The veteran actor explained that he had been working till late, hence the late ‘Good Morning.”
But by then the trolls had had a field day, leaving no stone unturned in plumbing the depths of indecency in attacking Amitabh Bachchan.
Take a look at some of these indecent remarks and our response to them …
“O, Budhau, 12 bajj raha hai aur abhi shubh prabhat keh rahe hai?”
(“Hey Oldie, it is close to 12 and you are wishing Good Morning now?”)
It would have been unimaginable a few years ago that anyone would dare to take on a respected superstar and a revered older member of our society in such an uncouth and rude manner. But the anonymity of social media allows a lot of disreputable people to take potshots from behind the scenes. These trolls would never dare to step up and reveal themselves. Not that we wish to have anything to do with them of course! We condemn such trolls and their worthless remarks and applaud Mr Bachchan for his gracious, deeply felt response when he replied, “I pray to God…nobody insults you when you grow old.”
“Aaj bahut der mein utri… lagta hai desi pe aa gaye hai aaj kal. 11:30 baje pratahkal”
(“Your hangover lasted till late today, seems like you have resorted to country liquor, Good morning at 11:30?”)
More of the same… but what can you expect really of this category of faceless trolls? More insults, more unreasonable behaviour, more crudity! It is sad indeed that an actor of Amitabh Bachchan’s stature and class should have to face such aggression and negativity. As he quietly clarified, Mr Bachchan does not drink – forget about ‘desi’ or ‘vilayati’!
“Yeh kaunsi pratah kaal hai mahanalayak ji?”
(“Which morning hour is this Mr super-worthless?”)
Now, now… this just reeks of hatred and a low-mindedness that is beyond response. To question the worth of an achiever like Mr Bachchan is to reveal your own worthlessness. A reality check about your own worth will definitely help you in the long run.
