The weekend is not going to be a comforting one for Amitabh Bachchan. The iconic actor’s deafening silence of the recent incidents that sent tremors nationwide is being questioned by the audience that has showered him with love and admiration for decades.
An eminent personality from Bollywood and a VIP citizen of Mumbai, an industry and a city that has been the center of some of the biggest controversies lately, Amitabh Bachchan has kept away from commenting on the series of mysterious deaths linked to Sushant Singh Rajput’s death, Kangana Ranaut’s office demolition, the expose on the drug ring in Bollywood, allegations of nepotism on the industry and every other issue these cases have led to.
The Baghbaan actor is not social media-shy. He sends out tweets regularly. During his stay in Nanavati hospital, where he was receiving treatment after contracting COVID 19, he uploaded a picture praising the hospital for its service. This act was slammed by Social Media personality Payal Rohatgi for being an endorsement at the wrong time.
On Friday September 12th, Rhea Chakraborty revealed many names from Bollywood to have a link in the Drug ring. Popular star Sara Ali Khan and Rakulpreet Singh were among them. This revelation came out just a few days after BMC demolished Kangana Ranaut’s office. This had intensified the political spat between the actress and the state government.
After Rhea Chakraborty’s arrest, a group of liberals and feminists from Bollywood took to social media extending their support for her. Kareena Kapoor, Vidya Balan, Dia Mirza and Amitabh Bachchan’s daughter Shewta Bachchan were among demanding to “smash the patriarchy.” But Big B had no words to spare on anything.
Irate Tweeples, hence took to twitter, to slam the superstar’s indifference and trended #महानायक_नहीं_महानालायक. You may read some of the most hilarious and strong tweets above.
