Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan is not taking the issue of the abusive blogger lightly and on Sunday he wrote, he could be a gentleman only 'up to a point'.
The 67-year-old actor is seriously miffed with this person who apparently writes abusive comments on his blog and sends him derogatory text messages and has already lodged a police complaint against the person.
"There is a limit to which this can be tolerated. I can be a gentleman but only up to a point. But beyond that I shall stop being one," he wrote.
"There is a serious effort by a member that writes and comments on this blog to use language and expression that is abusive, filthy and utterly disgusting," Bachchan had written in a recent blog post.
He said, "This individual has been sending me the most unprintable abuse on sms on my phone. I have, after great tolerance for many months, now reported the matter to the police."
Seen as one of the most sincerest of celebrity bloggers who writes his heart out on his blog, the Big B said he has been getting plenty of sympathy from the media, his friends and even from within the police who are promising action against the perpetrator.
"For the entire day there has been a barrage of messages of support, of wanting to catch the culprits and take them to task, of grave indignation and of being incensed by this show of absolute garbage that has been directed towards me," he tweeted on Sunday. Indicating that the blogger might be one from outside India, the actor said, "Soon there shall be a sharing of details, not just in India but in the country of its origin."
What enraged him most perhaps is the fact that the person apparently targeted the hate messages at the Bachchan's family.
"You go to the level of so much as touching my family and little innocent grand children and you shall have to pay extremely dearly," Big B warned.
