Amitabh Bachchan has been making headlines ever since his followers dropped to 32.9 million from 33 million. This sudden reduction of followers made him the ‘second’ most followed Indian celebrity on Twitter, giving Shah Rukh Khan a lead over him. Irritated Big B even threatened to leave the micro-blogging website, accusing them of reducing his followers. His anger was justified as we know how fond the megastar is of social media.
Despite his disappointment with Twitter, he is very much active on social media. Recently, he started following the popular Bigg Boss contestants including winner Shilpa Shinde, Hina Khan, Vikas Gupta, Hiten Tejwani and Vindu Dara Singh. Not only their official accounts, he’s even following their fan clubs as well.
Fans are wondering why all of sudden Amitabh Bachchan started taking keen interest in Bigg Boss. Vindu Dara Singh, who was one among the followed, took to Twitter to express his excitement. He wrote, “Fantastic day on TWITTER for me & Shilpians! @SrBachchan the LIVING LEGEND OF CINEMA following some of us & @ShindeShilpaS
Bhai log who have not yet followed Amitji, pl do so immediately!

However, later Hiten was suspicious if Amitabh Bachchan’s Twitter account is hacked. Expressing his suspicion, he wrote, “Is it true? @SrBachchan account is hacked? @Twitter #Twitterati”
Vikas Gupta was disbelieving when learned the news. He wrote, “Even if the account is hacked or the follow button got pressed by mistake It's a dream come true for all of us @SrBachchan is following.
Amitabh Bachchan tweeted a cryptic tweet about his followers and followings on Twitter. He wrote, “HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA ...social media - you are a delight !!
