Amitabh Bachchan was recently accused of plagiarism by a Facebook user. The legendary actor decided to take on the troller who criticized him and claimed that the actor had plagiarized a quote by veteran scientist Charles Darwin and not given due credit to the deceased scientist.
Amitabh had posted on Facebook, “It’s not the strangest who survive, not the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change. ” ~ Ef k.” On this, a comment by a man named Sam G read, “Very strange and sad to note that you have now resorted to plagiarism. This is a quote by Charles Darwin at least you could have mentioned the same after the quote….. very sad and shameful.”
Replying to the said user, Big B said, “It is very strange and sad to note that you have resorted to chide me, without reading the post carefully. I was going to use your own language and add ‘shameful’, but my ethics do not permit me to. Whenever there has been an error on my part and I have been told of it I have never hesitated to either correct it, remove it and have to sort an apology. I am not ashamed of myself despite your rather harsh and obtuse verbosity. Be safe, be cautious, and if you are from India, stay indoors and do not step out because India is in a lockdown.”
Meanwhile, on the work front, Amitabh Bachchan will be next seen in Chehre alongside Emraan Hashmi and Brahmastra alongside Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt.
Bachchan will also be seen in Jhund where he will essay essays the role of a soccer coach who motivates slum children to play soccer and becomes the founder of the village kids team of football. The movie is based on 73-year old Vijay Barse, a man who had changed the lives of hundreds of slum children through soccer.
