Superstar Amitabh Bachchan needs no introduction. An actor par excellence, Mr Bachchan has essayed many characters over the course of his decades-long career in the Hindi film industry. From the 'angry young man' of the '70s to a 12-year-old boy in Paa, Mr Bachchan has donned many hats with equal ease. These days, however, it is not just his movies that fans look forward to - it is also his witty social media posts. Amitabh Bachchan is active on various social media platforms like Twitter and Instagram, and his posts range from funny and witty to thoughtful and moving. Today, as Big B turns turns 77, take a trip down the memory lane and look at his 10 best social media posts.
In May 2010, Mr Bachchan posted his first tweet - the first in what would become a long line of hilarious, sometimes inexplicable tweets by the superstar. Mr Bachchan numbers all his tweets, and among his most widely-appreciated tweets is tweet number "T 3302" - a hilarious post on phone networks.

Amitabh Bachchan often shares throwback pictures on Instagram. His then-and-now picture with daughter Shweta is lovely.
He once also explained the efficacy of Hindi as a language in a single tweet that garnered almost 60,000 'likes' on the microblogging platform.

A sea of fans can be seen outside Mr Bachchan's residence, Jalsa, every Sunday. The Zanjeer actor greets them every Sunday in a ritual that has been going on for years. "Enlightened and so humbled .." he wrote in September, sharing a few pictures from the scene.
In 2018, Mr Bachchan shared an old picture that shows him touching the feet of his father, Harivansh Rai Bachchan. "I return home after my COOLIE accident after near death.. charan sparsh to my Father .. and see him breakdown for the first time in my life .. an anxious Abhishek looks on .." he captioned the moving picture.
Amitabh Bachchan's Twitter timeline is peppered with funny jokes like this one.

Mr Bachchan has been credited with giving Bollywood some of its most iconic and memorable dialogues. Last year, he looked back nostalgically on some of them and rued that today, opportunities to deliver iconic dialogues are limited.
