Amitabh Bachchan makes deadly statements about the fourth estate
Mumbai: Amitabh Bachchan has had a 40-year-old long love-hate relationship with the media, ever since he began his Bollywood journey. The actor, who is 68 years old and is still going strong, knows how to prove people wrong by his witticisms.
The living legend, who made an appearance of Karan Johar’s talk show ‘Koffee with Karan’, expressed his deadly views on some of the well known faces of the fourth estate on Sunday’s episode.
However, the audiences could not hear the stalwart’s comments as they were chopped off the episode. When quizzed by the filmmaker on which was the most over exposed couple, Big B spontaneously replied, ““Barkha Dutt and Vir Sanghvi are the most overexposed couple of the year.’’
When promos of Amitabh’s statements were aired, some people showed great interest and made frantic calls to the producer of the show for the sound bytes. Considering the fact that the statements were quite controversial, KJ’o decided it was best to pull it off from the episode to be telecast.
Moreover when KJo asked Big B about the worse criticism that he had ever heard about himself, the actor said, “Devyani Chaubal saw ‘Muqaddar Ka Sikandar’ and wrote ‘his sun is setting, he’s over’…Pritish Nandy wrote an article on me and titled it ‘Finished’”.
“That article really hurt me. Once, when I met Pritish, I had that article with me. He asked me why I was carrying it around. I said, ‘This is my inspiration to prove you wrong.’”, added the stalwart.
The actor knows how to give his critics a piece of his mind for sure.
