Megastar Amitabh Bachchan is furious and has slammed some online users, who have accused him of trying to garner “publicity” by talking about Nepal earthquake victims on his social media pages.
Bachchan, 72, has been active on Twitter, Facebook and blog with updates and appeals for the help of quake victims in the neighbouring country.
“They comment I write about it for comment and sympathetic publicity. IDIOTS! They need to be sent to the tube for long hours of investigative procedures, and made to languish in that odoured ‘keechad’ that colours their insides!!,” Bachchan wrote on his blog.
“Some other in the other medium slither in the scum of incognito ed garbage, and wish to learn what I do in capacity of help and care to those that remain stranded and scarred, blemished by nature, as it shakes in its slumber,” he added.
The generally eloquent “Piku” star admitted that his words were harsh today but said it was needed to correct those, who were calling his noble motive a publicity gimmick.
“There is a distaste in my words today, my apologies. At times it is time for it. I would not hesitate to deliver what to me would mean and spell anger and beyond. No no no… That is not right, nor correct… It is self destructive… No… I am not that… I never was… I never shall… forgive… forget…” he said.
