Big B claps back at troll who called him ‘budhau’
Actor Amitabh Bachchan is often seen interacting with his fans on social media, but he recently encountered a series of rather unpleasant comments on Facebook, with some trolls even resorting to age-shaming him. However, the actor gave them all befitting responses in his modest manner.
On Sunday, around 11.30am, the actor took to his Facebook account to wish his fans a good morning. While some wished him in return, others taunted him for extending morning greetings almost around noon.
One asked in Hindi, “Don’t you think you have wished a good morning very early?”, to which he replied, “I am grateful for the taunt. But I was working late night, shooting wrapped up this morning. I got late in waking up, so sent wishes as soon as I did. If it hurt you then I apologise.”
Big B also addressed a bunch of disrespectful comments, one of which read, “Abe buddhe dopahar ho gayi”. He wrote in response, “I pray that you have a long age but no one insults you by calling you a ‘buddha’ then.” Another Facebook user referred to him as ‘budhau’ and as Bachchan’s fans defended him from the troll, saying that he might be in a different time zone, the actor told them, “Let him say, he is telling the truth. No I am in the country only. I was working all night so woke up late.”
Another social media user trolled him by calling him Mahanalayak, a mix of the Hindi words ‘mahanayak’ (superstar) and ‘nalayak’ (worthless). The user wrote, “Yeh kaun si pratahkaal hai mahanalayak ji”, to which the Gulabo Sitabo (2020) actor retorted, “I was working all night, so woke up late, layak ji (worthy man).”
