Amitabh Bachchan responds to trolls, posts savage replies: ‘I pray to god nobody insults you when you grow old’

Actor Amitabh Bachchan has reacted to fans who trolled him for wishing good morning relatively late on Sunday. In his formal style, the actor thanked people for the taunts and slurs in chaste Hindi and clarified how he pulled off an all-nighter, and went to bed late, directing to the late greetings.

On Facebook, the megastar penned (in Hindi), “A good morning to you.” Since it was about 11:30 when he posted this, netizens started to troll him, most in good jocular mood but some with bitterness and abuse.

One commented sarcastically in Hindi, “Don’t you think you wished good morning too soon?” To which Amitabh answered, “Grateful for the taunt. Was working the whole night and woke up late so sent wishes. I am sorry if you felt hurt.”

The actor, while being dignifies, was savage. “Abey Buddhe dopahar ho gaye (Old man, it’s afternoon),” one of the comments said. The actor’s reply won over his fans. “I pray to god that nobody insults you when you grow old,” Amitabh penned.

Some did not just humiliate Amitabh for waking up late, but went off a deviation. When one person wrote that the actor must have drunk country liquor the prior night, he responded, “I do not drink, make others drink Madhushala.” The poem Madhushala was written by the actor’s father, the celebrated poet Harivansh Rai Bachchan.

Many others supported Amitabh against abusing comments. One said, “People are commenting as though they wake up with the Brahmamuhurtha (one hour and 36 minutes before sunrise)”. Many also applauded the veteran actor on his work ethic and how he nonetheless works all night at his age.

On the work front, Amitabh was last acted in Runway 34. His future movie include fantasy epic movie Brahmāstra, Tamil film Uyarndha Manithan, Kannada film Butterfly, among others.
