New Delhi: Celebrities are under the constant radar of social media and often become the subject of online trolling. But Amitabh Bachchan has no time to attend to the abuses or trolls online. Mr Bachchan rather finds it reasonable to spend time for work and his fans, who he regards as his "extended family (Ef)". On his blog, the 75-year-old actor wrote, "A concerned Ef warns me of extensive 'trolls' on the platforms and warns me to be discreet and attentive to what I may say on social media, for the ugliness of the disreputable, affects him, and he urges me to be of care. "
- "I love it .. actually .. for it provokes me to betterment," Mr Bachchan
- "A concerned Ef warns me of extensive 'trolls'," he added
- Mr Bachchan will be next seen in Brahmastra and Thugs of Hindostan
Mr Bachchan also mentioned that he is aware of what goes in and around social media but he purposely chooses to avoid negative criticism. "Yes I care .. yes I know of the abuse .. and yes I wish they be of greater intensity towards me .. for then it forms an unattainable mind set for even greater achieving .. attention given to such translates into what the troller actually wanted - NOTICE .. and the Ef has fallen into the trap .. pity," the actor added.
The 102 Not Out actor said that he actually loves the online criticism since it "provokes" him to get better. "I love it .. actually .. for it provokes me to betterment .. provokes me to get bigger and vastly improve myself, my demeanour, my standing , my dignity .. these titles are the end result of any life .. if the abuse leads me to this .. I am grateful to them .. do more .. for it drives me better and longer with better enlightened mind," Mr Bachchan wrote on his blog.
