Amitabh Bachchan is back in news again. This time for following Indian National Congress’ politicians and leaders.
After following Congress president Rahul Gandhi and the party’s official Twitter handle, he started following other senior Congress politicians like P Chidambaram, Kapil Sibal, Ahmed Patel, Ajay Maken, Sachin Pilot and CP Joshi among others from this month.
The Bollywood superstar is also following Manish Tewari, Shakeel Ahmed, Priyank Chaturvedi and Sanjay Nirupam among others as well on micro-blogging site.
Manish Tewari even thanked Big B for following him. After this tweet, a lot of buzz is going on.
His recent following spree has triggered a lot of speculations as he was once close to the party and later had drifted away.
Yes, Big B was once very close to the Nehru-Gandhi family and was a friend of Rajiv Gandhi.
Tweeple are wondering why out of blue, Bachchan started following all these leaders. Apart from Congress leaders, he is also following many other leaders from different parties as well.
Here is the tweet by Manish Tewari:
– Thank you Sh. Amitabh Bachan for following me and it is my privilege to follow the icon of Indian Cinema who we grew up watching First day First Show Every new release.Those days in late 70’s & early 80’s a Balcony ticket in Chandigarh was Rs.3. Unbelievable today! @SrBachchan

NONSENSE . Why do you assume ‘following ‘ congressis on twitter as newfound love for them? It maybe out of just plain interest like any citizen or maybe for pure entertainment…?😂😂😂

he is returning to his original passion. He was very well a congressman and fought and won LS seat from Allahabad in 1984. At his age, it is but natural to be nostalgic and passionate about the golden past.
