Mumbai: Amitabh Bachchan, who is an active social media user and online blogger, says that some people marvel at his “social media capability” and others “express circumspection”. The megastar also shared that too much of the antonym shall have equal repercussions and reactions.

Taking to his blog on Wednesday, the 73-year-old actor shared his thoughts on the different opinions that people have over his capability of writing a piece everyday.

“Many wonder on my social media capability. It is questioned that my finding time and energy for its execution to the level that I do, is far too cumbersome to be conducting it personally each night,” he posted.

“Some marvel at it, others express circumspection and many others have convinced themselves that it obviously is not my doing, but that of an entire digital team that operates mostly independently, and on some pertinent matters on a cue or guidance from me,” he added.

The Wazir actor also shared that while there are speculators, there are insinuators and then there is some cynicism as well that exists.

Talking about abuse, disagreement and harsh expressions, Big B says that all such expressions are not welcome.

He further posted: “Too much of the antonym shall have equal repercussion and reaction. The state of mind is what determines the attitude. I could be in the middle of the most ungrateful circumstance, when I am made to come across a perceived evil.

"The reaction to the evil or the perceived evil takes on a harsh reaction. Fine. But what needs to be understood is whether the harshness came from the perceived evil or an ungrateful circumstance,” the Padma Vibhushan awardee wrote.

The actor also added that “the entire world community cannot always be right nor always wrong”.

Earlier this week, The Indian Express released pages of an investigation report, alleging among other names that Amitabh and Aishwarya were directors in companies in Panama.

However Amitabh on Tuesday denied links with any of the offshore shipping companies in which he is supposed to be a director according to the leaked "Panama Papers".

Even Aishwarya's media adviser told the newspaper that the information was false.

The "Panama Papers" -- based on an investigation by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) and over 100 other news organisations around the world -- is a global list revealing offshore links of over 500 Indians, including Amitabh and his star daughter-in-law Aishwarya.
