‘Dude’ is a commonly used word among the English-speaking population of most countries. The term is generally more popular among the youngsters, but can a 77-year-old man be called a ‘dude’ too? The person in question is none other than Amitabh Bachchan, who was recently addressed so.
The incident might have happened abroad since it’s unlikely anyone would call him so in India, but the veteran was not aware of what it meant. Big B was curious to know its meaning and decided to get to its bottom.
The Piku star then shared what he found out, dude meant ‘guy’ or man’ and was a slang used among men. Another definition of the term ‘dude’ was ‘dandy’ that stood for a ‘well-groomed and fancily-dressed young man.’
Bachchan could not control his laughter with his research, and particularly the word ‘dandy’ left him ‘laughing it out going berserk’ and ‘Rolling on the floor laughing.’
Someone called out to me thus - 'dude' ! So looked it up .. "Dude a slang between men, meaning "guy" or "man." In 19th Century dude term for a dandy - well-groomed and fancily-dressed young man." Rolling on the floor laughingRolling on the floor laughingRolling on the floor laughing I'm laughing it out going berserk - dandy ?!
Big B’s Twitter handle is filled with many other such moments too, on one occasion he had invented the Hindi version of the word selfie as ‘व्यतिगत दूरभाषित यंत्र से हस्त उत्पादित स्व चित्र.’
