Veteran actor Amitabh Bachchan has been lately courting controversy for tweeting fake WhatsApp forwards. From claiming that rising the decibels of noise would destroy coronavirus to tweeting that the COVID-19 is caused by flies, Big B’s tweets have created quite a stir on social media. Twitter seems to have a field day post the actor’s yet another “controversial” tweet, inspiring a meme-fest.
On Sunday, Amitabh retweeted an unverified picture that was doing rounds on the micro-blogging site. The picture claimed to be a satellite image of India during the #9pm9minutes activity on Sunday. “विश्व जब डगमगा रहा था ! हिंदुस्तान जगमगा रहा था !! आज की तस्वीर यही बयां कर रही है. (When the world was wavering! Hindustan was shining! Today’s picture is telling this),” the caption of the picture read. Retweeting the same, Big B wrote: “The World sees us… we are ONE..” PM Narendra Modi had appealed to the citizens to switch off all lights of their houses on April 5 at 9 PM for 9 minutes and light a candle, Diya, or flashlight of their mobile phones, to show the unity amid lockdown.
