The venue was the Worli-Bandra Sea link, event by : Maharashtra State govt.. Invites were sent off, except since many like Amitabh Bachchan are very tied up & busy he confirmed a day earlier. The organisers MSRDC -Mah state road corpn. NCP & cong parties. All knew Big B was going.
Now small recollection on latest developments of this superstar is that BigB is NOT politician, he claims so. He stays away from politics, wc he again claims, but gets drawn into each & every controversy & political that too, at the drop of the hat.
Now BigB remained present for this grand occasion, opening of the extension. The CM ashokraoji (yes this is meant to be tongue-in-cheek) Chavan was present. They looked into each other’s faces, smiled, but then media too wants controversy. Someone close to the NCP leaked info. firstly remember the Ntionalist Cong Party, our very own NCP extended the invitation to this superstar actor. Then the one prankster MLA leaked BigB’s presence as controversy.
“How come the man who is ambassador of Guj be present at Mah govt programme, when our govt is secular? Now the one to whom it was leaked is really one smart cookie, who shld’ve turned round & put his MLA in his place. “isn’t your party too in this govt? Hasn’t your party been responsible for this goof up?” Who will ask these questions? The young nimbu-timbu journos??
So the media got controversy, BigB the eyeballs. The controversy flared into a major problem b/w Cong-NCP with people alleging the ground beneath Chavan’s feet shaken. Well COng only creates earthquakes, initially one sees NO reaction then one fin morn or late night the whip is cracked & axe falls on the concerned minister. In this case the CM.
However this wasn’t the end of the controversy. earlier on in the month it was proclaimed BigB would attend the 83rd Marathi Sahitya Sammelan. He did, he not only read out lines from his father’s poetry on rebel. He also praised Kaushal Inamdar’s ‘Marathi Abhimaan geet.’ The CM sulked & sat at home. This dropepd his popularity further.
Can’t help we live in a country that has higher number of illterates, uneducated people. So TV rules & dominates our lives, decisions & bedrooms. The CM lost out on sympathy & popularity. But what the citizens really need to ask, admit, BigB has been made a scape goat. But he isn’t innocent. How can Amitabh Bachchan accept the post of an ambassador from a CM Narendra Modi who is tainted? Who has blood on his hands? Who has openly spread venom & hatred.
Or does Amitabh Bachchan think human rights, right to life is bullshit. People need to be killed, women need to be raped & children – all these belonging to of a particular community, religion deserve their fates? He mouthed venom when journos wrote abt Aishwarya (his daughter-in-law) being unable to conceive. Hello Mr Bachchan, the women raped in Guj too are someone’s daughter, daughter-in-law, wife, sister, mother…those Muslims killed too are precious lives. He sits on the same dais with that Modi.
No one wins & no one gets sympathy. They don’t deserve it for sure.
