Bollywood mega superstar Amitabh Bachchan 's blog has turned out to be an instant hit in the cyber world inviting comments from zealous fans and hawkish critics across the globe.

Fans are happy to find the Big B within their reach and are lapping up every detail about the life of their favourite icon, who is whetting their appetite by blogging with unfailing regularity.




Bachchan is certainly going to have a tough time answering bloggers as they are not only querying Big B on his work, life and family but also filing details about their own life and seeking his advice on various issues as well.

The mega superstar has been bombarded by fans from as far away as Poland, America, Europe, UK, Australia and Canada.

On his part Bachchan is taking the job of blogging very seriously, going online about the latest developments in his life, discussing his daily routine or updating readers about the injury he incurred during the shooting of Aladdin .

Most comments directed to Bachchan are remarks about his family and he does not flinch from giving a point blank answer to one and all.

When a female blogger from Pakistan expressed her reservations on Abhishek Bachchan 's wedding with Aishwarya Rai , Bachchan responded instantly, "You may differ with her in her work her profession, but if you will cast aspersions on her personally, I will defend her, fight for her and not tolerate this kind of talk, as I am sure neither would you, were someone to speak ill of a member of your family."

Meanwhile, describing Bachchan as his good friend, film star-cum-politician Shatrughan Sinha Wednesday said he was taken aback by superstar's outbursts against him over IFFA award nominations.

Bachchan's comments on him were "unnecessary and bad in taste", the shotgun said in Shimla.

Describing the mega star as his good friend with whom he did many successful movies, Sinha said he failed to understand the reason for his being overtaken by anger.

"I had just said the award has turned out to be a function of a Bollywood family and did not name anybody... there are families of Khans, Raj Kapoor and Rakesh Roshan in the films...So on what basis Amitabh assumed I was referring to his family," he said.

Sinha said the IFFA itself did not react to his comments and asked "is Bachchan senior trying to be more loyal than the king to please IFFA (of which he is brand ambassador)?"

On Big B's allegation that he had a role in actress Raveena Tandon getting the national award when he was a minister in the Vajpayee government, Sinha said "assuming it is true, everybody knows that there was a hand of the then Mulayam Singh Yadav government in all the awards given to Bachchan's family in Uttar Pradesh."

He alleged all the awards lacked transparency as these were influenced by individuals, groups and politics.

On Bachchan's remarks that IIFA awards are given on the basis of voting and computerisation, Sinha said he is elder to him in the film industry and knows the truth.

"Why a popular film like Aamir Khan 's Taare Zameen Par which has been appreciated by the audience did not get a nomination?" he asked.

Sinha said "this significant omission is due to extraneous factors to benefit certain people and families."

The shotgun expressed serious doubts over transparency and objectivity with regard to all the awards.

"Some of the undeserving films like Eklavya and 'Jeans' were nominated for Oscar recently in place of deserving ones. As a result, 'Eklavya' did not get the Oscar nomination," he said.

Sinha said Hollywood awards still hold credibility and this is the reason those winning or even losing these are respected.

He said people with impeccable credibility should be made jury members for fair selection of award winners.
