Bollywood blog addict celebrates landmark

21 april 2011, 16:44
Lots of celebrities write blogs, but no one blogs quite like Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan who this week marked three years of writing in which he has often produced 1,000 words a day, AFP reports.

Bachchan celebrated the anniversary of his Internet outpourings with a characteristic array of long postings covering family news, spiritual thoughts and updates on his health, travel plans and sleep patterns.

Each Bachchan message attracts a huge readership and hundreds of comments contributed by adoring Indians who view him as a national father figure as well as an ageing screen star.

"Thank you for your presence and for your gratitude," Bachchan wrote to followers who congratulated him on his blog landmark.

Bachchan, who is universally known as "the Big B", blogs about 5,000 words most weeks -- a rate that would give him a total output of about 780,000 words since his first posting on April 18, 2008.

Almost every day, and often in the middle of the night, Bachchan -- who admits to being an insomniac -- writes in detail about his children, his dog "Shanouk", politics, philosophy and memories of his movie career.

Blogs often end with him saying his eyes are about to close with exhaustion.

Any mention in the blog of health problems or family disputes is immediately picked up by readers and soon reaches the national press and TV channels.

Bachchan blogs at http://bigb.bigadda.com and tweets as SrBachchan.
