After battling COVID-19 for weeks in the hospital, Amitabh Bachchan tested negative for the deadly virus and safely returned home a few days ago. On this occasion, Amul India took to social media to congratulate the legendary actor through a witty cartoon sketch that reads “AB beats C.”
Replying to the advertisement, Big B was spotted thanking the Indian dairy product brand.
He wrote, “Thank you AMUL for continuously thinking of me in your unique poster campaigns ..वर्षों से 'अमुल' ने सम्मानित किया है मुझे , एक साधारण शक़्सियत को 'अमूल्य' बना दिया मुझे !! ” While several Bollywood celebrities, including Ranveer Singh, Bhumi Pednekar, Mouni Roy and Bipasha Basu poured their hearts out in the comment section, a user mocking the actor wrote in Hindi, “Kam se kam muft mein toh amulya nahin banen honge... tay rakam li hogi. Saal dar saal badhi hogi.”
To this, Bachchan gave a befitting reply in Hindi, “Bahut badi galat faimi mein chal rahen hain aap, miyan. Jab sach na maloom ho toh aapne swachh mukh ko swachh rakhiye.
He continues, Na toh main Amul ko endorse karta hoon aur na kabhi kiya hain. Teer chalaane se pehle soch samajh lena chahiye, nahin toh woh aap pe hi aakar geerenge, jaise ki abb hua hai. Teer ki jagah jo mahawraa iss vishaye par woh kisi aur padaarth ka varnan karta hai. Meri sabhya parvarish ne mujhe uss ka varnan karne se rokk diya.” Further taking the screenshot of the trolling comment, the megastar also updated his personal blog and added, “…and the ‘graciousness’ of the comment went as follows..”.
