Mr Bachchan can do no wrong :)

Nobody wants to hear a word against Bachchan Senior!

Proof Number One - The comments on my last post.

Proof Number Two -

This Feb Raj Thakre was busy stirring violence in peaceful Maharashtra, and I can never resist discussing politics with the voters who really matter. So drivers, maids, dhobi, mali all are interviewed seriously. (Answers in red)
Who did you vote for last time? Hum and haw
Do you think the politicians care about the farmers committing suicide in your village? No, they just want votes.
Do you know about Anna Hazare? Yes, our whole family admires him. (unko bahut maante hain)
And Teesta Setalvad? Saw her on the TV don't remember clearly.
About Domestic Violence Act? No. Never heard of it. Such laws can only be for the rich.
About RTI? Yes, but not thought of using it, don't know how to use it...
MNS? My maid seemed unsure. Hum Haw. He says he can get us jobs, but maar pitai (violence) is not good...Some more hum & haw.

Then one day something changed her mind. Guess what?

"Raj Thakre spoke against Amitabh Bachchan! They threw bottles in his house! Against Amitabh Bachchan!!! Woh to itna karta hai! All this is against the law. Anybody can work anywhere!"

Well, I guess Bachchan Senior deserves it:) He has done some really superb movies. You can pit Bachchan's Sholay against all of SRK's movies and still Sholay will come out the winner. Hence, those comments on your last post :D

Mr. Bachan the social worker and national figure ... now that is a new one!!

Nice blog btw

Manasa said...

hehe.. I, too, dislike Mr Big B. The only reason he made Miss Gorgeous his D-I-L is that she has made hell-lotsa-money. What other reason can it be?

Manasa said...

BTW, can I blogroll you? :)

Amitji is god.... :)

I remember our maid Katti Didi who almost said that- mandir, no, but Amitji movies she would never miss.
There was an error in the previous one...

D said...

Ha! Talk about idolising!

Sachin said...

hehehe.... some people are revered like god in our country......AB Senior is one of them.........

Pinku said...

hey!

I dont know about B being God...but one thing is for sure...our country lacks leaders of real calibre so the masses just follow the fictional ones...

also the B family does a lot charity which goes down well with the masses ( never mind the fact that they cheat the govt on taxes)...

Am suddenly very busy!

manasa :) Neki aur pooch pooch?

aaarti :) AB junior is fine and about Aishwarya Rai...she's not bad you know (as a person). My 17 year old maid Manju just got engaged, her mother has five daughters and one son, she looks, acts and feels old, and not just 'over the hill', but definitely OLD and finished, specially since her husband cracked her skull, abandoned his family and got himself a new wife. I told her her mother should think positively, these days 35 is not old at all, and she tells me, "I know Aishwarya Rai is 33 and she just got married at this age, and that too to a guy younger than her!" Aishwarya Rai is definitely a good role model for her fans :)

Indian Home Maker said...

Krishna aradhi No doubt!!!errr but sholay also has Veeru, Basanti & Gabbar..no?

phoenixritu I too was surprised. He's really loved. More than Shahrukh Khan, maybe age and the kind of roles he plays add to his image!

Sachin & D There's a temple of him in Kolkotta!

Alankrita Yeah, he's truly loved!

Pinku That's what my maid said too.
We Indians are generous about tax non payment ;)

Mandira I guess all these ads are great publicity...models are all out of jobs these days!

This was funny! I dont normally like to comment on political views but I found this post really funny. Sentiments of poor,emotional people. I dont know how the politicians can sleep in the night causing such misery in the lives of others. I hope there is special place reserved in hell for them!

a confession: I can't stand Amitabh Bacchhan

Mampi said...

There was a time when I couldn't stand Bachhan Senior, but with age fast maturing him and helping him evolve anew, I am all praise for him-as an actor, as a good writer even.

I also dont likr Big B and family as I feel that they are the most manipulating people without any eithics, but here you are comparing a real shahrukh with a reel AB.Infact I dont think that even shahrukh does good acting but his PR is very good, while Ab is winning only because of his art. Personally I feel that as an actor AB is par excellence, while as a person shahrukh is a good human being
