At last, television channels have decided to stay away from the Bachchans' personal matters and give them complete privacy.

Amitabh Bachchan tweeted: 'Yesterday journalist from electronic, sent me sms, which indicated that this decision was from the electronic media .. And the message from the journalist of electronic stated : " .. to respect ur family's privacy n women's dignity all tv news networks decided not to follow aishwarya's pregnancy or delivery. Not a single line news till official announcement. No camera's and OBs will be stationed at your place or hospital. Regards .."'

Earlier, the Information and Broadcasting Ministry had ordered television media not to park their vans outside the hospital. 

'Apparently media has been told by I&B to not have OB Vans outside hospitals ! That news came to me via a journalist .. so someone putting two and two together and making it Bachchan ... Ha ha ha !!' he added.

Bachchan was also questioned about having asked the I&B ministry to intervene in the matter. To which, he replied: 'HaHa ! Print MidDay asking if I have told I&B Ministry to block media news of Aish delivery ! Absolute rubbish ! Good try MDay ! &B and media matter ! Firstly I have no such intention ever, secondly do you really think I&B would listen to me !?? No way baby !'

He denied all allegations and asked his fans not to worry. 'So who does one believe ? The self proclaimed etiquette and decency of the electronic, or the dictat of the I&B Ministry ??? BUT ..!! No worries TwXmFt ! Every other day some ridiculous, malicious and completely false allegations are thrown at me ! Smiley !' he added later.
