Amitabh Bachchan, who is known as Big B, Bollywood’s Shahenshah, The Angry Young Man, and Mahanayak, is quite open about his views on social media. The megastar has recently shared his words of wisdom on social media about how it is a tricky medium of expression. He has previously said that social media is the atomic bomb of the modern generation. He feels that users can easily voice their opinions and have the capability to give a perspective to any comment to make it political or otherwise.
In July 2019, Amitabh Bachchan took to his Twitter handle to express his opinion on what power social media holds.
T 3236 - Social Media is being recognised as the NEW POWER , and in some intellectual quarters, the 5th Estate .. Media being the 4th , after the known 3 .. BUT .. a word of caution on what you express , because even 'lighthearted' is controversial now !!! 🤨— Amitabh Bachchan (@SrBachchan) July 24, 2019
Earlier in April 2019, he also tweeted, “The social media is the modern generation's atomic bomb. It has the capacity to exercise a chilling response to the enemy; bringing them down to their knees, seeking pardon.” Amitabh also manages his personal blog. He wrote on his blog, “Over 7 billion humans in the universe now have opinion and voice and capability to give a perspective to any move political or otherwise. And see it being spread through the medium it employs across the continents of habituated being... It is a scary ultimatum”.
He keeps updating his fans whom he fondly calls his extended family, about his personal and professional developments via these platforms. On the work front, Amitabh Bachchan is currently working on big releases of 2020. They include Brahmastra also starring Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt in lead roles, Jhund whose music is composed by well-known composers Ajay-Atul, Gulabo Sitabo, and Akshay Kumar-starrer Laxmi Bomb.
