Amitabh Bachchan lambasts electronic media again

After returning from attending the funeral of his old mentor Prakash Mehra, Amitabh Bachchan through his blog has lambasted the present electronic media that was present there to cover the event.

Just a few days back after attending Feroz Khan’s condolence meet, the ageing super star had rightfully vented out his frustration on the ever intruding electronic media members who at such events forget that sensitivity is expected during such occasions.

States Big B, “Prakash ji’s eldest son Sumeet returned from USA this morning and the cremation took place by the afternoon. Abhishek and I attended it, but the behavior of the electronic media at the crematorium was just disgusting.

No respect shown for the sensitivity of the occasion. No regard for the moment and no ethics at all in maintaining some decorum for this very private and sombre ritual.

All they were interested in was in getting that ‘bite’ or shoving their cameras inches away from your nose, at a moment when one desired peace and quiet. Shameful. But what of some of the mourners, if they can be called that!

They were no less. Pushing and shoving to get a position behind or near about the celebrity, so the cameras can catch them.”

He ends up with with saying, “I shall not dwell on this anymore. I may just burst a blood vessel.”
