’Big B’ is not Bachchan, tweets Anand Mahindra

’Big B’ is not Bachchan, tweets Anand Mahindra

In the lexicon of Bollywood, 'Big B' meant Amitabh Bachchan. For decades, most Indians have been endearingly calling the 'angry young man of the 70s' as the 'Big B'. In George Orwell's dystopian fiction '1984', Big B (Big Brother) is the leader of an imaginary totalitarian regime 'Oceania' who strikes terror in the hearts of the people.  Everyone who read the iconic novel knows how scary it was when someone said "Big Brother Is Watching" .

Anand Mahindra has tweaked the two 'Big B' references that most of us are familiar with. In his lexicon, 'Big B' is not the Orwellian fictional character 'Big Brother' (Big B) nor the 'Big Bachchan'.

As the country's first full-time woman finance minister gets ready with her 'bag of hope' to present Union Budget on July 5, Anand Mahindra got into a friendly banter with the original 'Big B'.   The chairman of Mahindra Group, known for his 'Twitter' humor, tweeted "With due apologies to Amitabh Bachchan, there is only one 'Big B' this week...and that's the Big Budget". In the world of Twitterati, Anand Mahindra is a big hit among his followers who tweet back to him with their suggestions and innovative ideas.

Anand Mahindra's "Big B' tweet evoked a response from the 'Big B' himself.  In his inimitable style, the 'Big B' tweeted back, ''Hahaha, Anand Mahindra. 'Big B' is a media created epithet, one that I have never subscribed to. The 'Big B' this week that you mention, will create media... that many shall subscribe to."  'Big B' for now is 'Big Budget' to be presented by the 'Big S' (Sitharaman).
