Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan is an avid social media user and during the times when the country was in the state of a lockdown, his activity over the web increased even more. From sharing meaningful thoughts and lessons to father Harivansh Rai Bachchan's poetry, from throwback photos to interaction with fans, the 'Don' actor has done it all. Speaking of this his latest post will make you wonder if you ever thought of searching the Hindi translation of a 'mask.' Yes, the mask which has now become a crucial part of our lives amid COVID-19 pandemic also has a Hindi word, and probably, Big B has caught hold of the same. But mind you, it's so confusing that you will feel like using it as a tongue twister for some fun.

Taking to Instagram he shared a photo of himself wearing a Gulabo Sitabo themed mask. Along with the same, he shared the Hindi word that happens to be 'Nasikamukhsanrakshak Keetaanurodhak Vayuchanak Vastrdoriyuktpattika.' He wrote, "मिल गया ! मिल गया ! मिल गया ! बहुत परिश्रम के बाद , MASK का अनुवाद मिल गया !After a lot of hard work by Ef Vb, he did the translation of 'MASK', in Hindi : *"नासिकामुखसंरक्षक कीटाणुरोधक वायुछानक वस्त्रडोरीयुक्तपट्टिका ! nasikamukhsanrakshak keetaanurodhak vayuchanak vastrdoriyuktpattika."

Some fans felt it is difficult to remember such a lengthy-term, while others felt the language in which it has been translated is not Hindi but Sanskrit. "It is such a long word, by the time we finish pronouncing it, coronavirus will die," joked a fan. "We adopted lot of English word in Hindi, why not call mask. This is fine and dandy," suggested another fan. "This is Sanskrit not Hindi. People make fun of Sanskrit language by using laughing emojis after writing it," retorted a user. "Sir, with respect to you I like to say that, the hindi version of mask is very long can't we make it short , just like for example, mukharakshak, but, you have done a great job," suggested another user.

The actor recently went down the memory lane and shared recalled his first drunk scene in Bollywood film Mili, co-starring his wife Jaya Bachchan. He wrote, " MILI' .. the film .. Jaya and me .. an art work of such beauty .. my first drunk scene in the film , much before the mirror scene of AAA, and Satte pe Satta, HUM, or Shakti."

On the event of the beginning of the Jagannath Rath Yatra on June 23, he shared a picture from the Holy place and wrote, "June 23 Jagannath Rath Yatra .. because of the vastness of the Festival the English word ‘juggernaut’ meaning huge powerful and overwhelming, was derived from it .. the origin of the word came from here JAGANNATH and the incredible temple in Puri Orissa."

On the work front, the actor's recent film Gulabo Sitabo released on June 12 on Amazon Prime Video and gained applauds. Directed by Shoojit Sircar, the film even starred Ayushmann Khurrana in the lead role. Coming up next, Big B has Brahmastra co-starring Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, and Nagarjuna Akkineni in the lead roles.
