Amitabh Bachchan loses cool after troll wishes he died of COVID

It is has been close to 17 days, Bollywood star Amitabh Bachchan has been battling coronavirus at Mumbai’s Nanavati hospital.

The Sholay actor who has been updating fans about his health to his fans across the globe was recently irked due to a comment by an unknown fan.


In his latest blog, the senior Bachchan mentioned about an anonymous troll who wrote to him, ‘I wish you die of COVID’.

Addressing one “Mr Anonymous”, Bachchan wrote on his blog that the troll was trying to gain a sense of self-importance by verbally attacking a star like him.

Bachchan wrote: “Hey Mr Anonymous .. you do not even write your Father’s name ,.. because you do not know who Fathered you .. there are only two things that can happen .. either I shall die or either I shall live .. if I die you wont get to write your diatribe anymore, by weathering your remark on a celebrity name .. pity .. for , the reason of your writing to be noticed was, because you took a swipe at Amitabh Bachchan .. that shall no longer exist .. !”

“If by God’s grace I live and survive you shall have to be weathering’ the swipe’ storm , not just from me , but on a very conservative level, from 90+ million followers,” he wrote.

Bachchan said though he has not asked his fans to take any action against the troll, if he survives COVID-19, he will.

“They are a force incensed. They traverse the entire world. From the West to the East from the North to the South and they are not just the EF of this page, that extended family shall in the flash of an eye become extermination family.’”

Bachchan even wrote a paragraph in Hindi, calling the troll a “blot on society.”
