Amitabh BachchanAmitabh Bachchan takes on his detractors with diplomatic sarcasm

Ever since he has started blogging, Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan has begun answering his detractors.

And the Big B's swipes are full of diplomatic and restrained sarcasm that gives a befitting reply to his critics without undermining his own dignity. Not just in oratory, in written word also Big B remains a master.




Here is a sample of the superstar's subtlety.

Responding to a media report in which veteran actor Shatrughan Sinha said about the IIFA awards nominees, "Sab kissika beta hai, ya kissiki bahu, ya kissiki biwi", the Big B wrote:

"I believe what is being insinuated is that there is partiality or some 'fixing' in the choice of the nominations carried by IIFA. And as the report concluded, the indication was towards one family, not difficult to guess which one.

"I am surprised at this observation, especially since, during the time of the National Award selection for Best Actress in one of the past years, when the Award went to Raveena Tandon , it was alleged that Mr Shatrughan Sinha's wife, the lovely and graceful Poonam, a great friend of Raveena's mother had recommended the appointment of MacMohan, the brother of Raveena's mother, on the board of the Jury in order that he may cast his vote in favor of Raveena Tandon.

"If this alleged story is true then i do value Mr Shatrughan Sinha's alleged statement of "Sab kissika beta, kissiki beti, kissiki biwi" - you are so right Shatru !!"
.

But the Big B did not stop at that, he went on to add:

"And Shatru !! I have seen some very encouraging reports of the film, where your son ( Luv Sinha ) is being introduced to this great Industry. May he prosper and succeed even more than his illustrious father and may he never have to face a slighted accusation of 'fixing', when his name comes up for an Award in the future!!"

Not just Shatrughan Sinha, the Big B also took on media for reporting that the unveiling of Sarkar Raj was reduced to more of a family affair because of the wedding anniversary of Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan .
