Bachchan takes on terrorism

September 26, 2008 15:23 IST

Amitabh Bachchan has sympathised with slain police inspector Mohan Chand Sharma, who was killed by terrorists in Batla house, Jamia Nagar, in New Delhi, when his team raided their hideout. Sharma was killed in the gun fight, in which two terrorists were also killed.

In his blog update, Bachchan shares a thought-provoking SMS that he had recieved.

'An ace shooter wins Gold and Government gives him 1+ crore. Another ace shooter dies fighting terrorists and Government pays him 5 lakhs. Guess the real winner!' Bachchan wrote.

The superstar's reference is to Abhinav Bindra's gold-winning performance at the Beijing Olympics and Sharma, who died fighting terrorists in Delhi.
