HE has now found a new way to reply to inconsequential gossip about him. The superstar has signed up with a website where he will post his comments on a blog. In a press statement issued by the website, Bachchan said, “it will allow me to express myself, share and reflect my emotions, thoughts, opinions and listen to what people have to say to me and show them the real side to my larger-than-life image that they see through media. It’s a platform, which I control and share my own drama without anyone editing or interpreting my thoughts.’’ “What’s most important to me is that I can now share consequential replies to the inconsequential gossip that do the rounds. I have always wanted a platform, where I can speak for truth is always stranger than fiction. People will now be able to get an unedited version of my views, ideas and thoughts, straight from me,’’ he added.
Aamir is the first Indian actor and perhaps the only one who seriously blogs. His posts at www.aamirkhan.com are widely read and the actor religiously checks the responses to his views. The reclusive actor prefers to voice his views and uses the blog to clarify some serious issues like the Tibetan protest and his decision to run with the Olympic torch.
Both these celebrities are into blogging for the same reason, we all blog :) We may not be a celebrity (yet!) ... but our life, thoughts & feelings are no different to them. SO go on, and dive into the wonderful world of blogging !
