Amitabh Bachchan on Completing 10 Years of Blogging
Many people write because writing is considered one the most powerful ways to express your thoughts and feelings, but when it comes to Amitabh Bachchan’s writing, it is beyond comparison. The 75-year-old actor has been blogging in order to connect with his Ef (extended family) – as he loves to refer to his fans – since April 17, 2008. Yes, he clocked in a decade of blogging on Tuesday and was ecstatic realizing the feat.
“10 years! April 17, 2008, a few words went out to the world of the airs and in the waves of connection some of them carried a recognise of them and sent some sentiments back and the next and the next and the next and 10 years went by,” Sr. Bachchan wrote on his blog.
He also took to Twitter to express his gratitude to his fans who ardently followed his blog and reciprocated the emotions.
The megastar was overwhelmed with the accomplishment and it was obvious in his tweets and blog. The veteran actor revels in the bond he has with his Ef and is amazed to realise how a simple blog went on to become a home, “the warmest and most hospitable in the entire world”. He also added how he fears not being responded by his followers.
Amitabh Bachchan is one of those few actors who keep their fans abreast of their day to day life. Besides updating his blog with the details of how his day went, he also shares about his family and friends, how he loves to spend time with his granddaughters, and sometimes, anecdotes of his past days in the industry.
On the work front, he has just wrapped up shooting for Thugs of Hindostan and will soon be seen playing dad to Rishi Kapoor in 102 Not Out, which is slated to release on May 4 this year.
