Asian Journal - - Bollywood Journal -

Af­ter months of his con­tro­ver­sial post on late car­toon­ist RK Laxh­man, Megas­tar Amitabh Bachchan has been slammed by a man named Dr Jag­bir Rathee for al­legedly shar­ing his poem on so­cial me­dia by some­one else’s name. This time Big B, shared a poem on the so­cial net­work­ing sites and a man, named Dr Jag­bir Rathee, claimed that the poem, which was shared by Big B, was writ­ten by him in 2006. How­ever, Big B gave credit to some­one else while shar­ing the poem on so­cial me­dia. Rathee is direc­tor of Youth Wel­fare Depart­ment at Ma­har­ishi Dayanand Uni­ver­sity at Ro­htak. Ac­cord­ing to sources the said poem is from Rathee’s book ‘Maati Ka Chulha’ which was pub­lished in 2006. Rathee slapped a Rs 1 crore no­tice on Big B, stat­ing that he has been try­ing to con­tact the Bol­ly­wood star through Face­book and Twit­ter. But all his at­tempts went in vain. Af­ter all his failed at­tempts to con­tact Big B, Rathee de­cided to send this legal no­tice to Big B who has been given a 15-day time to re­spond to the no­tice sent.
