Mumbai: Megastar Amitabh Bachchan has no time to attend to the abuses or trolls online. Bachchan rather finds it reasonable to spend time for work and his fans, who he regards as his “extended family”.
The 75-year-old actor said he always takes abuse on social media in a positive light as it drives him to strive for “betterment” and he would rather concentrate on work than pay attention to the trolls.
“I have no time for abuse… I have time for my work, for my Ef and this blog… I do not have time to attend to abuse… I love it… Actually… For it provokes me to betterment… Provokes me to get bigger and vastly improve my self, my demeanour, my standing, my dignity… If the abuse leads me to this… I am grateful to them… Do more… For it drives me better and longer with a better-enlightened mind,” Bachchan wrote on his blog.
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 mindset 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 actor said he wishes the abuse had “greater intensity towards” him.
“Attention given to such translates into what the troller actually wanted – NOTICE… and the Ef has fallen into the trap…
“My love to all… and if any of you would wish to bring me abuse and falsehood, I shall welcome it with open arms,” he wrote.
