Most of us dream of becoming successful and popular like several Bollywood celebrities, but being at the top, with thousands of fans and followers, also has its own demerits. You are often at the receiving end of trolls and negativity online. In fact, some people never miss an opportunity to make you look bad in the public eye.
Amitabh Bachchan who is followed by millions across the globe recently shut down a troll who questioned him about why he doesn’t donate his extra wealth to the needy and poor, reported Hindustan Times.
It all happened when Big B posted a picture of his wrist, decked with Rakhi sent by his sisters on the occasion of Raksha Bandhan, on his Facebook account.

On the post, one of his followers commented:
“How about donating your extra wealth to the needy and poor? I am sure your wallet will be filled with immense love and blessings!! Lead by example!! Instruction is good but example is worth more!!”
Big B was irked by her comment and decided to list out the innumerable occasions on which he has lent his support to the needy.
Here’s what he replied to her:
However, in his recent blog, the ‘Mahanayak’ repented responding to the woman and wrote:
“I weep as I put this out because somewhere today this lady has destroyed my belief and stand that I shall NOT talk of my charity only DO it, it needs to be done not talked of.”
This isn’t the first time that senior Bachchan has responded to someone trolling him on social media, because as he rightly pointed out in his blog post, “There is a limit of what can be said; there is a limit to what one can bear.”
