He is the icon of the icons since ages, while the other is the current heartthrob of the nation. But surprisingly the 74 year old mega star Amitabh Bachchan is more social media friendly while the 34 year old choice of the young generation Ranbir Kapoor is aloof from the social media limelight.
At India Today Unforgettables stage, Amitabh and Ranbir spoke about the role of social media in their life.
Making a stunning revelation, Big B reportedly said that he has been on the social media for a total of 5400 days in two different websites including non-stop blogging for 3,103 days and the icon does it on his own.
The stunned ‘nonsocial’ Ranbir Kapoor just couldn’t find words to react and just said 'Wow' in his reaction. However, Mr. Bachchan made it clear that he is not a social media freak, though he may be an active blogger. Mr. Bachchan reportedly said that 'The mobile phone is a horror, 'You want to go to all the social media sites. You want to get all kinds of news and it's just become a habit. And once you start scrolling, you just don't want to stop.'
This gave Ranbir a breather and he reportedly confessed that he has stayed away from social media because he feels that social media presence eats away at a star's exclusivity.
On this Mr. Bachchan gave the reason why he regularly started blogging on social media. He said that someone has given him the suggestion to start his own website because there was a danger of misinformation being spread through various websites floating on the net claiming to give information on Amitabh Bachchan
Well, Ranbir Kapoor is a huge fan of Amitabh Bachchan and we hope by seeing his icon so active on social media, the heartthrob might appear on social media. It’s not that ‘mushkil’ to be active on social media for Ranbir Kapoor ‘post’ this revelation by Mr. Bachchan.
