Amitabh Bachchan is an active social media user. In a recent tweet, Senior Bachchan retweeted a post that had the image of the map of India highlighted in the world map. It was shared by him after the 9 PM 9 Minutes event initiated by the Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi during the coronavirus lockdown. The actor captioned it, 'The World sees us .. we are ONE". While Amitabh Bachchan did not say that the image is what India looked like due to the lamp lighting exercise, Twitterati interpreted it as such. They thought that the actor claimed that India was lit up and began informing him that is was fake.

His fans and followers were quick to react to this tweet, misinterpreting it to be of the country lit up due to diyas and candles. Many thought to point out that was a fake image. There were others who asked him to be careful about what he shares and also how they expect him to behave responsibly. Here are some tweets:
