Amithab Bachchan Warns Abusive Blogger, Says Anyone Touching His Family 'Will Have To Pay Dearly'

Amitabh Bachchan, who filed a police complaint against an unknown person who had been sending derogatory and abusive messages on his blog and through SMS on his mobile phone, revealed today (August 30) that the police is investigating the matter.

"The Police has been informed of this grave and insidious act and many of the level of commissioner and equal rank who are personal friends have been wanting to seek more information, have been incensed and are in action.

"Soon there shall be a sharing of details, not just in India but in the country of its origin," Bachchan posted on his blog.

Ever since the news was made public yesterday (August 29), the 67-year-old received many supportive messages from friends and well-wishers.

"The media picked up our blog and spread it out into the world of information and now for the entire day there has been a barrage of messages of support, of wanting to catch the culprits and take them to task, of grave indignation and of being incensed by this show of absolute garbage that has been directed towards me," he wrote.

The actor said he will never spare anyone who talks ill about his family.

"There is a limit to which this can be tolerated. I can be a gentleman up to a point. But beyond that I shall stop being one. You go to the level of so much as touching my family and little innocent grand children and you shall have to pay extremely dearly," he posted.

Raavan Film Editor A Sreekar Prasad Reacts to Amitabh Bachchan's Comments About Raavan's Editing Being Sad (Bad)

Raavan editor A Sreekar Prasad doesn't mince words despite his 'silence'. "We don't want to say anything hurtful about Mr Bachchan" is the Response/Reaction he offers

A Sreekar Prasad, Film Editor

Let Amitabh Bachchan say what he wants to!

The seven-time National award winning editor of Mani Ratnam's Raavan, A Sreekar Prasad got an unexpected rap on his knuckles when the Big B blamed the apparent disjointed narrative of Raavan on the editing.

The soft-spoken Sreekar laughs uncomfortably at the reminder of Mr Bachchan's comments. "We'd rather keep silent on this because we don't want to say anything hurtful about him. He's such a senior artiste."

Best judge

However he reluctantly opens up and admits he was hurt at Mr B's comments. "As a member of the audience, he has the right to say whatever he wants to. We've been in the process of editing Raavan for a year and a half. I have gone through the footage with Mani so rigorously. We were probably in the best position to judge what was good for the film."

When told that the pace of Raavan was too hurried Sreekar protests, "There is a reason for it. The director chose to start the narrative on a very high note. It begins with the kidnapping and moves straight ahead to the finale. We had no back projection, no explanations, and no character establishment. We chose to tell our story in this way. We didn't want to spoon-feed the audience."

Upward tempo

Sreekar says it was a conscious decision between Mani and the editor to create a new pattern of storytelling. "We wanted to start on the highest possible note and keep the tempo going upwards. A small back projection comes in only in the second half."

Mr Bachchan has commented on how the whole notion of Abhishek's character conversing with his ten heads, doesn't come across.

Explains Sreekar, "Mr Bachchan wanted us to graphically show ten heads. Mani and I tried that. But we made a conscious decision not to get into that area. We decided to let the audience get into the character's head as the narrative progressed. I am sure there are lots of people who didn't get the point. But it was a risk worth taking. Because a certain section did comprehend."

Sreekar has worked with Mani Ratnam on several earlier occasions including Yuva and Guru. "We've worked together for the last ten years. We're very much on the same wavelength. We stand by the editing. We wanted the audience to understand the characters' motivations as the narrative progressed. Mr Bachchan hasn't seen the footage that we've edited. So he doesn't know what process of elimination we've gone through. It's really sad that my work has become a controversy."

Rekha and Jaya Bachchan Spotted Together at a Book Launch Function - Chehere by Gautam Rajadhakshya

Actresses Rekha and Jaya Bachchan were spotted together at the launch of Chehere, a coffee table book compiled by celebrity photographer Gautam Rajadhakshya, in Mumbai. The function was held on 18th June 2010.

Also accompanying them was Asha Bhosle, who was looking lost, caught between the two.

While Amitabh Bachchan is always known for giving a royal ignore to Rekha, did his wife Jaya extend an olive branch to the actress. Not Really.

Rekha and Jaya bury the hatchet?

Rekha's relationship with Big B is something that's always had a lot of mystery attached to it. The frequent co-stars in the 80s had amazing on-screen chemistry, and it was probably helped by the speculation about their off-screen relationship. Years later, the two (and even Big B's family) rarely come face-to-face. So when Big B's wife Jaya Bachchan and Rekha were at the same function, and even met each other, everyone was wondering what they talked about.

According to sources, Rekha approached Jaya while she was chatting with singer Asha Bhonsle and wished her. Catching Jaya unaware, she extended her arms towards her and hugged her warmly. But what shocked all was Jaya Bachchan’s cold reaction towards the actress; she just turned away from Rekha and resumed her chat with Asha Bhonsle.

Jaya Bachchan was hosting the event but she never requested Rekha, who was seen sitting secluded, to come on stage. She did not even mention her name while naming the leading ladies of Bollywood. Ironically, she mentioned the name of Padmini Kulhapure amongst good actresses of the past but Rekha was ignored throughout the event.

Padmini Kolhapure, Hema Malini, Kajol, Rekha, Sooraj Barjatya and Khayyam were also present at the function.
