Amitabh Bachchan, the Bollywood veteran, had a witty response after Twitter restored blue tick verification for accounts with over one million followers. In a tweet on Sunday, he wondered why he had to pay for the subscription despite having 48.4 million followers. Amitabh tweeted in Hindi, "Are maare gae Gulfam, biraj me maare gae Gulfam. Ae Twitter mausi, chahchi, beheni, tai, bua... jhauaan bhar ke ta naam hain tumhaar. Paise bharwa liye hamara neel kamal khaatir. Ab kahat ho jekar 1 m follower unkar neel kamal free ma. Humar to 48.4 m hain, ab? Khel khatam, paisa hajam?
Last week, Twitter had withdrawn blue tick verification from all legacy verified accounts and retained them only for the accounts that subscribed to Twitter Blue and paid a subscription fee. Amitabh had addressed Twitter as 'Twitter bhaiya (brother)' and had requested his blue tick mark to be restored on his account. Later, when it was restored, he thanked Twitter and even wrote a song for Elon Musk - Tu Cheez Badi Hai Musk Musk.
Over the weekend, Amitabh changed his address for Twitter from 'bhaiya' to 'mausi.' He even explained the switch, stating that earlier, the sign for Twitter was a dog, so he addressed it as brother, and now it is back to being a bird, so aunt it is. Amitabh has been responding to the developments in Hindi and entertaining his followers with his wit and humor.
Meanwhile, on the professional front, Amitabh Bachchan has a slew of projects in the pipeline. He will next be seen in 'Project K' alongside Deepika Padukone and Prabhas. He will also be a part of 'Ganapath Part 1'.
