Amitabh Bachchan, other than being the exemplary actor that he is known to be, is also an active Twitter user. The 74-year-old actor takes to the micro-blogging site often, from sharing life lessons, appreciating and lauding others’ works in the film industry and beyond. And he does so differently — with his photos along with the tweets. So what if he’s only registering a complaint with his phone service provider!

Yes, Bachchan recently tweeted to Vodafone complaining about not being able to send messages. While the mobile service provider was quick to respond, Reliance Jio jumped at the opportunity to offer the actor “a Jio SIM” and “activate it instantly”. But it seems the opportunistic Jio might have to wait for now because soon enough Bachchan tweeted to Vodafone that the glitch has been solved. Others on Twitter who witnessed the conversation were left in splits — not just because of the playful tenor of the actor’s tweets, but also after seeing Reliance Jio’s instant reaction. Others wondered why wasn’t he using the mobile services provided by Idea — of which son Abhishek Bachchan is the brand ambassador or that of Reliance Jio, of which the CEO Mukesh Ambani is a close friend of the Bachchan family.
