Now BigB stnads for THE Amitabh Bachchan. A superstar, who nearly every Indian worships & thinks as the master of acting. I have my reservations…because i feel since few years he has stopped acting & is upto to antics. Moreover i judge actors, stars-yeah i do judge-for a whole lot of things- the ease with which they take their stardom, conduct themselves, how less hypocritical they are or not, how they deal with publicity, malicious or good, how they come across & who they try to portray themselves, whom do they hob nob with, what are the kind of people they have businesses with…etc etc. Simply b’coz damit half the world’s population looks up to these icons, or morons.
In case of BigB as he is termed. He really is humility personified. errr…wait pl do read his blog for further clarifications. He rips apart the persons, he doesn’t even spare women. Why should he right? He gets personal & so personal (in case of a North Indian writer from the Times Group has been subjected to some references that concern her physicality!)that his own so-called humility sounds fake. He lets out some secret, personal stuff then waits to see reactions of the public & media, whom he thinks he can manipulate like puppets. Most often it backfires. Like in the case with his daughter-in-law’s poor man’s illness that has become a rich man’s illness…oh didn’t you guess?? Tuberculosis!! Didn’t know it’s a taboo. So the tabloid printed it saying why she can’t get preggers.
He’s been hyperventilating now boycotting the group’s awards. Ohhh lala…so much for his dimplomacy! the world has a lot to say about this paternalistic, over-protective father-in-law. Personal Life, me NOT interested…not at all
But yes his associations, dabbling in various businesses, i am truly surprised that BigB has not been put behind bars. He was helped ably & lifted out of a financial mess by the besaharon ka ‘sahara group.’ Who runs reportedly drug cartels, he funds the mafia & has all malicious & shady dealings. No wonder he could pump millions into a fledgling companhy called ABCL.
Delhi political circles since 1984 are abuzz with stories of how BigB was given the Bofors kick back money, wc he NEVER returned to Sonia Gandhi (widow of slain Rajiv Gandhi, former PM, old pal of Bachchan), who obviously has got back at this man. At her daughter’s wedding, from what i heard in Delhi BigB was never invited to hand over-do kanyadaan of Priyanka. He forcibly took on this duty.
these all issues obviously have kept the man tainted. As if it is not enough, Now BigB has become ambassador for Gujarat, Narendra Modi’s state. A chief minister who has instigated, abbetted crimes against Muslims, women, allowed cold blooded murders, deaths, uncouth rape & murders of women, foetuses & children. The same Modi who has blood on his hands, has turned around his state after the murders. He even got a couple murdered with a sweet girls Ishrat Jahan fm Mumbra whom he got termed as terrorist! This BigB has gone & joined the team.
If we say the Jews were treated in the most inhuman manner & Hitler is held responsible, this man Modi is in the same league as Hitler. If any artiste had been associated with Hitler he would have surely been run down. But this doesn’t happen in the case of BigB. It is raved & written with utmost respect. this baffles me.
Having said this i do not discount the fact that the country nearly went into depression when he was seriously injured, but like a friend tells me, “His time had not come, that is why he did not die,” the poor stuntman who kicked him wrongly, has been doomed for life though…but here we are dealing with one man whose real self he himself may or may not know…but his ghostly aura definitely tries to overpower every sane person’s thinking.
