It's raining bullets in Mumbai, the city that gives home to Bollywood. At least 125 people have been killed and 327 injured in the encounter between the Indian army and the terrorists. Life in this busy city has been distorted. Now, actor Amitabh Bachchan has expressed his anger on the incident.
The actor wrote in his blog bigb.bigadda.com that he spent most of his time in front of the TV, watching the proceedings on the streets of Mumbai in anger. He added that he has received a million calls and SMSes, requesting him to express his views on the situation, but said it is against his ethics. "This is disgusting !! I will NOT do that. TELL ME AND ORDER ME INSTEAD THAT WE REQUIRE FOR EVERY INDIAN TO GET UP AND WALK INTO THE FACILITIES WHERE THE ACTION IS ON AND I WILL BE THE FIRST TO WALK. But, please do not ask me to come and make sloppy statements that will do nothing more than create viewer interest in said particular channel," he wrote.
However, the superstar has chosen his blog to express his anger over the barbaric 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.
Well, let's hope everything returns to normalcy soon! Only then the Big B can have peaceful sleep!
