Amitabh Bachchan said that he has has no time to attend to abuses or trolls as he would rather spend time for work and his fans, whom he refers to as his "extended family (Ef)". The cine-icon, 75, shares his thoughts on trolling and abuses on his blog.
"A concerned Ef warns me of extensive 'trolls' on the platforms and warns me to be discreet and attentive to what I may say on social media, for the ugliness of the disreputable, affects him, and he urges me to be of care," he wrote.
The 102 Not Out star said that he is aware about it, but chooses to avoid it.
"Yes, I care. Yes, I know of the abuse and yes, I wish they be of greater intensity towards me for then it forms an unattainable mindset for even greater achieving attention given to such translates into what the troller actually wanted - notice," he added.
The thespian says trolls provoke him to do better.
"I have no time for abuse... I have time for my work, for my Ef and this Blog... I do not have time to attend to abuse. I love it actually, for it provokes me to betterment. (It) provokes me to get bigger and vastly improve my self, my demeanour, my standing and my dignity," he added.
Big B says he is "grateful to them" for it "drives me better and longer with better enlightened mind"
"My love to all. And if any of you would wish to bring me abuse and falsehood, I shall welcome it with open arms," he added.
Here's Amitabh's write up from his blog:
''There comes a moment in the early hours of the day when it is wondered whether all shall be well and whether life shall move at all .. and then with equal suddenness comes a waft of air, a gentle breeze and fills the inners with hope an opportunity and solutions and fresh avenues to explore invent and be a part of .. the future at once begins to look enhanced and in expectation of the very best ..
The mind in all affairs is the most active and alive ever .. it works magically when needed .. it excels in turmoil and resentment, in distrust and unpleasantness .. it is a saviour, a hero and equally a villain .. and all times its prominence and its position in our world, delivers what we never may have expected ..
The glory is in the unexpected .. it surprises, it uplifts temperament and it glorifies that which may have been overlooked and set aside ..
But the mind be such that any gap or forced overlooking could have been damaging to the rest of the system, destructive and unwanted .. and the beauty of it all is that the mind has the capacity to sift the good from the bad and send away some warning signals .. which if followed bring results we want to see .. if not we get results which we may never want to see ..
And this is the dichotomy of life .. what we have gets overlooked .. what we do not have is striven for with effort .. if the effort had been directed to that which we have , the ‘have’ could have been enriched a hundred fold ..
Expect not the 100 ; settle for its half, attain it and making that the base strive for the 100 .. after all it shall be just a 50 more !! hehehe
A concerned Ef warns me of extensive ‘trolls’ on the platforms and warns me to be discreet and attentive to what I may say on social media, for the ugliness of the disreputable, affects him, and he urges me to be of care ..
Yes I care .. yes I know of the abuse .. and yes I wish they be of greater intensity towards me .. for then it forms an unattainable mind set for even greater achieving .. attention given to such translates into what the troller actually wanted - NOTICE .. and the Ef has fallen into the trap .. pity ..
I have no time for abuse .. I have time for my work, for my Ef and this Blog .. I do not have time to attend to abuse .. I love it .. actually .. for it provokes me to betterment .. provokes me to get bigger and vastly improve my self, my demeanour, my standing , my dignity .. these titles are the end result of any life .. if the abuse leads me to this .. I am grateful to them .. do more .. for it drives me better and longer with better enlightened mind ..
My love to all .. and if any of you would wish to bring me abuse and falsehood, I shall welcome it with open arms ..''
