Today was an unusual day in many ways . .
- Was to reach Mumbai from Hyderabad by 10, reached at 1 PM (have to write a blog on that too!)
- Had plans to cancel office, but came to office, reached at 2:30
- My HR says – what should I write, u r not on leave, and crossed the half day mark too!!!
- And then I sit in front of my computer, doing the daily updates, when suddenly my colleague shouted – Sud!! Amitabh Bachchan is on twitter!!!
And I was like – Whaaaaat!!!!
I stopped my work, and just searched Big B on twitter – and there was tweet mentioning his handle – @SrBachchan!!!
His first tweet –
@juniorbachchan hey baby !! I made it on twitter !!! Yeeaaaaaahhhh !! … sorry.. just got carried away .. safe onward flight and love
And my first action was clicking the “FOLLLOW” button, and tweeted –
And…Ladies & Gentlemen – Presenting BIG B on twitter!!!!! Welcome sir!!! @srBachchan
The very Apt name Sr. Bachchan seems to be inspired by Abhishek’s handle – @juniorbachchan.
Someone tweeted – Why he doesnt have a handle like @SeniorBachchan, to which my reply was –
nice to use sr instead of senior. He will get more chars to write!!! @srbachchan
And my excitement was even noticed by my boss who tweeted saying –
So, the God of Movies, A blogger, is now a twitterer too!!! He was following only Abhishek Bachchan, and by evening he started following Sachin Tendulkar!
To one of teh tweet of Sachin –
The sea was rough n I can’t swim at all ! It was really scary. I had 2 life jackets with me incase something went wrong ha ha ha….
Amitabh Bachchan replied –
@sachin_rt Sachin !! a delight to connect to you. Are you out of the water yet ? lifebelts and all !! have fun
Amitabh Bachchan has been a very regular blogger. Hoping the same with twitter too. It should be more easy, more convenient and more frequent for Mr. Bachchan.
The twitter bug has now finally bit the Legend himself. it would be nice to see the growing followers of Amitabh Bachchan. I am sure someone would come forward to track his daily follower count as Mid-Day started for Sachin!!
P.S. – By 8 Pm today, he has 18,672 Followers!!!
Meanwhile – you can have a look in to the filmography of Mr. Bachchan here.
