Amitabh Bachchan is no stranger to the limelight, and he is not going away anytime soon. Not from the multiplexes, TV screens and certainly not from Twitter. With 29 million followers, who would?

So what makes Amitabh Bachchan the second most followed Indian on Twitter? His superstardom? Perhaps. His casual narcissism? Maybe. His eccentrities? Most definitely!

He gives literally zero Fs and is more active on Twitter than the septuagenarian uncle from your family that badgers you with WhatsApp forwards in six different family groups and also on personal chat.

As an ode to the Big B, let us look back at some of the most Amitabh moments of Bachchan Sr on Twitter right from his no context/relation pictures of himself dripping with narcissism to him scolding the younger crop of Bollywood for ignoring his calls and texts.

Let me begin with the obvious. Amitabh Bachchan may love his wife, and his children, his bahu and his grandkids, but first and foremost, Amitabh loves Amitabh. Everyone else is in second place.

He tweets pictures of himself with just about anything under the sun,whether it’s a random tweet, or an update about a movie he starred in, expressing sorrow and sadness over an incident, or EVEN A CONSUMER COMPLAINT. Source

No I’m not joking.

So there’s that.

Most recently, Amitabh Bachchan publicly scolded Sonam Kapoor on Twitter for not responding to his birthday wishes in one of the ‘most uncle moves ever.’

Yeah you guessed it right. Poor Sonam had to apologize.

That’s not it. The next one to be scolded in a similar manner was ‘full power’ Ranveer Singh on his birthday in a similar faux pas.

Ranveer proceeded to butter Big B up in order to escape the Shahenshah’s wrath and well, smart.

Another truly Amitabh incident happened when Big B congratulated ISRO for their world record breaking launch of 104 Satellites in a single mission, obviously with a picture of himself but this time, he had Junior Bachchan for company.

Well, Twitter users decided to troll Junior Bachchan’s rather subdued career as compared to his father’s five decade old presence in the industry. (I’m not saying anything.), while some questioned the need for his picture altogether but we're way past that now.

AND, when his Samsung Note 7 wouldn’t charge, Bachchan sir went full Amitabh and attached a picture of himself with the complaint. That level of self obsession is what even millennial teens only dream of attaining, although Big B is not even apologetic!

People have noticed, he knows, and he couldn’t care less.


He addressed this apparent issue that people have with his ‘self love’ in a tweet which obviously had another picture of him. I’ve never witnessed someone give such a calm and collected ‘f*** off’ on Twitter. EVER!
