Not shifting my fan meetings to the beach, says Bachchan

Wednesday, July 22, 2015

Megastar Amitabh Bachchan has responded to a motorist's rude Facebook post telling him to shift his meet and greet with fans to the beach as the crowd outside his home causes traffic. Bachchan, 72, wrote on his blog that the motorist blamed his Sunday meeting ritual for traffic snarls and asked him to shift to Juhu Beach as there is a "lot of space" and called him a "third rate actor".

"I would entirely agree with this responder on FB. This celebrity actor is indeed an old aged man, and most certainly a third rate actor... But... Mr Suffering Motorist... I am in no way going to leave my house to locations that you so generously suggest, to meet my well wishers... They are like family to me, and I shall meet my family at home not on the beach...," he wrote.

The "Piku" star also said that celebrities end up as a scapegoat for every problem. Bachchan said he did not enter into “any contract” with Doordarshan to endorse its channel DD Kisan, contrary to reports. Bachchan, 72, said his campaign for the new channel was “pro bono” and happened many days ago. “I wish to state that I have not entered into any contract with Doordarshan, on the endorsement of their Channel DD Kisan, and neither have I received any money from them. I worked with the advertising agency Lowe Lintas on the campaign for DD Kisan, and have not entered into any contract with them either, nor have I received any money from Lintas, as being stated,” he said in a statement.
