Amitabh Bachchan, country’s biggest megastar till date. He might have been Hindi Cinema’s Angry Young Man, but off the silver screen, he is the gentlest soul in Bollywood. But this tweet from Big B to actress Sonam Kapoor would remind everyone – never angry Mr Bachchan. So basically what happened? Sonam Kapoor turned 32 on June 9 and celebrated her birthday in style. But the gorgeous Neerja star failed to acknowledge the 74-year-old’s birthday wishes and was schooled for it. Amitabh Bachchan and Sonam Kapoor’s Twitter conversation will remind you of real life situation we all have been when we fail to message back our relatives.
Sonam Kapoor had a blast on her 32nd birthday as seen from her social media updates. The fashionista was joined in by her rumoured boyfriend, Anand Ahuja while cutting the birthday cake. Everyone from Shraddha Kapoor to Richa Chaddha to Anoushka Shankar wished the birthday girl. In fact, Sonam Kapoor’s co-star from Dilli 6 and Big B’s son, actor Abhishek Bachchan also wished the actress on Twitter. Sonam thanked every tweet for wishing her happy messages, but she did not realize missing out one name – One big name.
So what exactly happened? Sonam Kapoor replied to actor Suniel Shetty’s tweet and thanked him for the wishes. To Suniel’s message, “Wish you a very very happy birthday @sonamakapoor …hope you touch many more hearts with good & meaningful cinema. Stay blessed!” – Sonam replied: “Thank you so so much!! Tons and tons of love”. All seemed hunky dory till Amitabh Bachchan decided to gatecrash the pleasantries while being exchanged.
The Onset of Problem
Don’t Angry Mr Bachchan
Big B wrote below Sonam’s thank you tweet to Suniel Shetty – “@sonamakapoor … and what about ME .. this is Amitabh Bachchan my dear .. i sent you an sms on your birthday and you never replied ..aaarrrgghh !!” Not to forget the angry red face emoticon. We have seen Mr Bachchan all poised, appreciative and funny on the micro-blogging platform but this was quite a meltdown from the senior actor.
Sonam Kapoor who quickly realized her folly replied without wasting any time further and wrote – “Oh my god sir!! I didn’t get it!! I always reply!! Thank you so much! I got @juniorbachchan message I’m so so sorry.” We can only imagine the horror on Sonam’s part after missing out to acknowledge Bollywood’s biggest star’s wishes. But we totally loved the way she was explaining in her defence taking Junior B’s name. So relatable.
