Ace actor Amitabh Bachchan is one of Bollywood’s most senior actors and yet, he is better at social media than many younger stars. Amitabh Bachchan regularly uses Twitter and Facebook and his blog to interact with his fans and keep them updated about his life. Recently, the actor interacted with a few fans on Facebook and one of them asked him why he endorses pan masala.
“Hello sir, I just one question for you. Why did you endorse a pan masala brand? Then what is the difference between you and these Tatpunjis (broke artists),” the fan asked.
“If some people are getting benefits from an industry, we should not think as to ‘why am I getting associated with it?’ If it is an industry, then we too should think of it as our industry. Now, you may think that I should not be doing it, but I get paid for it. In our business, there are a number of people who are workers and in a way they too get work and some money. Besides, gentleman, please don’t use the word ‘tatpunjiya’. It doesn’t look good coming from you. It is also not fair on all the other workers in our industry,” Amitabh Bachchan responded.
