With an active presence on social media platforms such as Twitter and Instagram, the legendary actor also pens his thoughts on a blog, inviting his fans into his world of anecdotes and everyday musings.
Beyond the confines of the movie set, Big B’s charisma shines as he hosts the 15th season of the immensely popular quiz-based reality show, “Kaun Banega Crorepati.” But what really adds sparkle to this digital journey is the anecdote of a contestant who playfully reminded him of his late-night social media usage habit and has an advice for him.

During a recent episode that enthralled viewers on a Tuesday evening, Dhimahi Trivedi, a young and aspiring tennis starlet, graced the hot seat. She inquired in curiosity about Big B’s work schedule and still keeping up with social media. “I often see you posting at 2 am. You shouldn’t stay awake for such long hours or you would get dark circles,” she quipped.
The question marked an intriguing shift in the conversation, and Amitabh Bachchan, found himself asking, “Am I doing something wrong?” Dhimahi’s response carried a touch of affectionate advice, “No. But you must take care of yourself too.”
From this point, a fascinating interaction unfurled, and the veteran actor revealed t he rapport he shares with his devoted admirers. He shared, “I make time for it. I write blogs every day. If I miss it then my fans would ping me and remind me. There have been times when I have written something but forgotten to post it. Social media helps me stay connected to people. See in life, there will be good and bad reactions on social media. One mustn’t fear the trolls. Instead, they should challenge them and do what you love.”
