War of the Words

First things first , I am too small a person to comment on the greats like Amitabh Bachchan , Aamir Khan and SRK , but still as a writer and a blogger I write what I feel in my heart so please excuse me if you do not agree with my opinions .

I don't know what is with both Amitabh Sir and Aamir who are nowadays more in the news for statements that they make on SRK rather than their work . Considering both have no media attention these days they have found the next gen media i.e. the Internet quite useful to convey unnecessary stuff to the people . While Amitabh Sir is Showing Graphs of his popularity compared with that of SRK on his blog , Aamir is busy telling the story of a dog whose name only has got his blog over 5000 comments so far and don't how many millions of hits .

Now what is the necessity of doing this by the league of greats ? If Aamir does it , then also its OK but if a great personality like Amitabh Bachchan is also doing it then it is just shameful . It seems to me that Amitabh Bachchan can't digest the fact that SRK's popularity is increasing day by day and his days are passing by . These acts of Amitabh sir is only going to leave a black spot on his glorious career of past few decades . Now , even I think that he should retire with Dignity , which doesn't mean he should stop working .

Interpersonal Relationships with your colleagues is a major part of any Professional person's success and that applies even to an Actor . Everybody knows that after the Big marriage of Abhishek and Aishwarya , the bachchan family has suffered a huge blow in that department . Ash as everybody knows is not that popular with her colleagues and now even Amitabh sir is not . Both Big B and Ash have had their share of success so now it doesn't matter to them if they have good or bad relations with others . But the biggest sufferer in this case is Abhishek who has not much of career and if he would not keep a healthy rapport with his colleagues I am afraid his career won't be even as good as his spouse . I couldn't spot any member of the Bachchan family at any of the award functions which are more of a big way to socialize among the friends in Bollywood . Seriously , Award ceremonies in Bollywood are just like a big party thrown by the organisers and every major person gets a small trophy as a return gift . If he/she is not nominated then he/she receives a special award so that they don't go back home unhappy . And if Amitabh Bachchan is going to talk rubbish of SRK who is quite powerful in Industry won't help any bit for Abhishek's carrier .

Coming to Aamir Khan , who was always considered media shy has suddenly turned into this candid person who shares irrelevant things on his Blog . Aamir has built up his own image of not working too much but just doing the quality work and keeping a low profile and a Dignified Silence . But from past few months he has all of a sudden decided to work more and even talk more . SRK as we all know works really hard and has made his presence felt in every sphere of life and his popularity charts are growing everyday beacuse he is considered as an Icon by the youth of today which believes in working hard and dreaming the impossible . This is what probably not going down well with Aamir probably who always thought that youth idealizes him . Earlier it was considered that Aamir speaks with his work but now its the words that come out of his mouth saying a lot about him . As they say , Chose your words Wisely before speaking and may be Aamir who has always kept a silence doesn't know how to do it . First he got into the whole no. one thing and now into his caretaker's dog name .

One can't change his/her image overnight and if Aamir and Amitabh have made an image of themselves in the public then they should try to maintain it rather than outdoing themselves and doing something that they have never done in their life . If today SRK would have made such a statement like that of Aamir (which I don't think he wold have made beacuse he is quite responsible when it comes to his sense of humour ) then SRK would have also got the same response from public because humour has a limit when it is made in public . SRK is cheasy but he doesn't offend the feelings of general people whereas Aamir has pressed the nerves of all SRK fans which I think are way more in number . He has probably lost a control on his brain along with his hair .

Anyways I just think that responsible people like Amitabh Sir and Aamir are wise enough to understand the value and effects of their words and learn to use them more carefully in future . One line from Spiderman for all of you ---- "With great power comes great responsibility " .

  1. Agree that Aamir should have definitely been more politically correct. However, I really don't think he did it for popularity (he's been getting thousands of comments on his blog posts since he started blogging!) as much as for the fun of it.

    Yes, he should have been more careful; but I'll take Shah Rukh's and Aamir's words for what it is -- and trust what both of them say.

    He *has* been known to be the most hard-working actor. Definitely more so than Shah Rukh, whose commitment to his films I question because he is too busy for TV or cricket games. Playing devil's advocate for a second...if we look at their last five films, and honestly ask ourselves whose films have meant more to the public and who has made a bigger difference through cinema, I think the answer is overwhelmingly in A. Khan's favor. Still, I do admire SRK's accomplishments, and I like his films.

    There I go again comparing the two... =) And you know whose side I am on, so it's not like my comments are biased or anything like that ;)


    PS: Trying to refrain from comments on Amitabh -- he's disappointed me big time with his blog while also convincing me that he is not a happy man. Why he feels like he has so much to prove is beyond me, and I wish he would talk more about his films. Also, the length and quantity of his posts mean that he has either hired someone to blog for him, or he is less busy than most people!
