Amitabh Bachchan, Shatrughan are in Blog war?

Updated on April 26, 2008
 

Guess who is having a spat through blogs? Amitabh Bachchan and Shatrughan Sinha have been taking digs at each other.

Their onscreen dosti, it seems has turned bitter on cyberspace. Shatrughan Sinha had reportedly criticised the Bachchan's dominating the nominations for this year's IIFA awards. Now, Amitabh Bachchan has hit back on his newly created blog hinting that the Sinha's are hardly in a position to preach.

Bachchan writes: "A section of the print media carried comment from my colleague and friend and neighbour, Shatrughan Sinha that Sab kissika beta hai, ya kissiki bahu, ya kissiki biwi.

I am surprised at this observation, especially since, during the time of the National Award selection for Best Actress in one of the past years, when the Award went to Raveena Tandon, it was alleged that Shatrughan Sinha's wife, the lovely and graceful Poonam, a great friend of Raveena's mother had recommended the appointment of MacMohan, the brother of Raveena's mother, on the board of the Jury (structured by the government in power - in this case the BJP, of which Sinha was a minister) in order that he may cast his vote in favour of Raveena Tandon.

If this alleged story is true then I do value Shatrughan Sinha's alleged statement of Sab kissika beta, kissiki beti, kissiki biwi - you are so right Shatru!!"

On his part, Shatrughan Sinha says he wasn't targeting Amitabh. "I did not name Amitabh Bachchan or his family. I did not even mention IIFA award," said Shatrughan Sinha, actor and BJP leader. However, Big B seems to have been cut to the quick. He even took a sarcastic swipe at Shatrughan Sinha's son entering the film world.

He further writes: "And Shatru!! I have seen some very encouraging reports of the film, where your son is being introduced to this great industry. May he prosper and succeed even more than his illustrious father and may he never have to face a slighted accusation of 'fixing', when his name comes up for an Award in the future!!"

The two stars skirmished most recently when Shotgun upset at not being invited for the Abhi-Ash wedding sent back the wedding sweets. Since then they claimed to have made up, but the latest cyber-war may make it harder to restore the old Dostana.
