Mumbai Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan has revealed that he was threatened by an unnamed person through a text message for visting a Hindu temple and a Muslim dargah. 

The 67-year-old actor had described his religious routines in an earlier blog, which led the unknown person to threaten him against doing so, but the megastar is undeterred. 

"That I visit a Muslim dargah and a Hindu temple has been viciously criticized by an unknown element on my mobile. He says it is incorrect of me to do so and that I should never do it again." Bachchan wrote on his blog. 

The actor had visited the Haji Ali dargah in the wee hours on Thursday and then went to a nearby temple. He also visited a small dargah on and finally went to the Siddhivinayak temple. 

But despite the warning, Bachchan insists that he is unaffected by such reactions. 

"I am going to do it again, and shall continue to do it. And I want to see how you are going to stop me. If you have the courage and guts come and get me," he wrote. 

The man has also warned the actor that his latest film 'Aladin', which hit the theatres yesterday, will not be successful because of Bachchan's act of visting the dargah and temple. 

"If the film has merit, no force on earth will be able to stop its worth. If the film is weak and does not have merit, no force on earth shall be able to make it a success. At the cost of every film of mine failing, I am not going to change my routine," wrote Bachchan.
