Amitabh Bachchan, despite his age, is no stranger to the world of social media, and his Twitter account is proof of how active the man is. From sharing his thoughts, to updating his fans with his current happenings to even taking us all on a walk down memory lane, Big B has smashed the myth of old people not being tech savvy, left right and center. 

On Thursday, Mr. Bachchan got stuck in some mad Mumbai traffic and of course, he had to share his woes with us. The 75-year-old star was stuck in a massive traffic jam for five hours and had an aam aadmi experience. 

The actor was travelling from film city to JVPD scheme, Juhu which hardly takes thirty to forty minutes in regular traffic. Taking to his Twitter he wrote, “A 30 min drive… takes 5 hours…! That’s the Phantom movie camera moving at 500 frames per second… film city to JVPD scheme, Juhu… normal camera moves at 24 frames…”

T 2765 – A 30 min drive .. takes 5 hours .. ! thats the Phantom movie camera moving at 500 frames per second .. Film City to JVPD Scheme, Juhu .. normal camera moves at 24 frames ..

Within no time there were thousands of likes on his tweets expressing both sympathy and empathy. “We feel you,” read one comment. However, there were also a few comments signaling irritation with the actor for complaining about being stuck in traffic, which in reality is a pretty common deal for us regular folks

“Imagine traveling to Juhu on Sundays when you hold fan meets,” read a particularly aggravated tweet and yea, we can feel his ire all the way from here! 

Clearly, the fan wasn’t very pleased with the actor complaining about traffic jams and decided to tell him about the problems that many go through every Sunday, when tons of admirers gather on the road just to get a glimpse of Bachchan, which usually results in the blocking of roads and disturbing the traffic routine. Now we wonder, what Amitabh has to say to that?

A while ago, even Shah Rukh Khan got stuck in traffic and posted a picture of him on social media. He wrote, “I took this pic in colour on the way to @aanandlrai #Zero shoot. It’s taken so long in traffic, the colours have faded…”

Trying to sprinkle some humor into the frustrating situation, King Khan wrote how traffic jams can make one a photo editor.

In fact, to skip the traffic during the shoot for ‘Zero’, SRK has even opted for a chopper to tow him to and fro. Sigh, we wish we could do something like that!

Coming back to B Big, he was recently in Hyderabad shooting for a cameo in Chiranjeevi’s 151st film ‘Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy’. He also shared pictures from the sets revealing his look.
