This tweet from the 73-year-old actor was posted shortly after columnist Shobhaa De described Team India's performance as a 'waste of money and opportunity' in a tweet that has since been widely criticized.
T 2342 - India Rio, PROUD of YOU !! Do not dismay failure .. to them that lament loss, look around .. any of our neighbours seen anywhere ??? Amitabh Bachchan (@SrBachchan) August 8, 2016
Mr Bachchan, a sports fan, has been avidly following the Games. On Sunday, he tweeted about not being able to watch gymnast Dipa Karmakar qualify for the vault event.
T 2341 - #DipaKarmakar .. they said they would show you but never did .. channels interested in the other country athletes ! Good luck? Amitabh Bachchan (@SrBachchan) August 7, 2016
Tuesday was a busy day for Amitabh Bachchan, the trailer of whose next film Pink was released in Mumbai. It's unlikely, however, that he will not watch the hockey match or the shooting later. We'll be logging on to look at his tweets in the am.
