When Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan launched his blog bigb.bigadda.com, many would think that it was meant only for promoting his films and a way to communicate with his fans. Aamir Khan started his blog aamirkhan.com with a big controversy by writing about his maid's dog by name Shahrukh. However, these actors have made good use of their blogs following the terror attacks on Mumbai's hot spots.
The recent terror attacks in Mumbai city that left nearly 200 death and 300 injured inspired Bollywood actors Amitabh and Aamir to reach out to their fans. Amitabh condemned the barbaric acts of the terrorists and revealed the insecurity he felt after the attacks. "My pain has been the sight and plight of my innocent and vulnerable and completely insecure countrymen, facing the wrath of this terror attack. And my anger has been at the ineptitude of the authorities that have been ordained to look after us," he wrote.
The actor also revealed that he did something for the first time following the terror attacks. "I am ashamed to say this and not afraid to share this now with the rest of the cyber world, that last night, as the events of the terror attack unfolded in front of me I did something for the first time and one that I had hoped never ever to be in a situation to do. Before retiring for the night, I pulled out my licensed .32 revolver, loaded it and put it under my pillow. For a very disturbed sleep," wrote Amitabh.
Aamir also expressed his anger and sadness through his blog. "My heartfelt condolences to the family of the brave officers of the Mumbai Police who lost their lives leading from the front to take on these terrorists. Especially Hemant Karkare of the ATS who in the recent past was being targeted by various political parties for the work that he was doing. When will these politicians realize and admit that terrorists HAVE NO RELIGION. Terrorists are not Hindu or Muslim or Christian," he wrote.
Well, Amitabh and Aamir have made good use of their blogs by reaching out to their fans the world over.
