What angers Amitabh Bachchan?
Megastar Amitabh Bachchan is upset with someone using a fake id to mock him and write nasty messages about Shah Rukh and others on twitter.
'ATTENTION !!! Someone using my fake ID and writing rubbish ..My ID is @SrBachchan .. fake ID being disgustingly used is @SrBachhann. Fake ID of mine being used to write opinions on Ra.One .. I have not even seen the film and shall always wish the best for ShahRukh,' he tweeted.
But it seems that the actor has had enough. 'Of late a great amount of negative, malicious, completely untrue remarks being written against me .. I shall bear with silence .. but BEWARE THE FURY OF A SILENT MAN ... !!!! There's a limit to what can be said, a limit to what I can tolerate .. much is in my control .. think well before you malign me !! and not just these comments on Ra.One ..many malicious, completely false accusations are being directed to me..I will not tolerate !' he added later.

Is Ra.One a bigger hit than Bodyguard?
According to director Mahesh Bhatt, trade insiders say that Ra.One is below Bodyguard. 'My maid says Ra One is below expectations.TOI says it collects 22 crores on the first day! The trade says it is below BODYGUARD. Who is right?' he tweeted.
He also took a dig at critics. 'Writing film reviews is the surest shortcut to a sensation of power for those who lack the dedication or courage to make film themselves. This cultivated air of superiority & this put on indifference is a prerequisite to get a job as a critic in any 'rag' (newspaper) these days,' he added.
