·2-min read

Amitabh Bachchan is known for his uncanny social media posts. From sharing old family photos to film updates and from posting memes to heartfelt poems, the actor makes sure that his Twitter timeline is full of wits and lessons in equal parts. Recently, he shared a poem in Hindi about brewing a special ‘tea’ with ingredients such as happiness, imagination and laughter.

The poem was loved by many, however, it turns out the veteran actor didn't credit the writer for it. A woman named Tisha Agarwal, claiming to be the original writer of the poem commented on Bachchan's post in Hindi saying that while she is honoured to see her poem on the actor's timeline, she wished she was credited for it.

Apologising to her, Bachchan responded tweeting, "this tweet credit should go to @TishaAgarwal, I was not aware of its origin .. someone sent it to me , I thought it to be good and posted, apologies (sic),"

"Want your love not your apology," said the woman in Hindi after Bachchan extended his apology.

On the work front, Big B has a busy year ahead with upcoming films like "Chehre", Nagraj Manjule's "Jhund", Ayan Mukerji's "Brahmastra", Ajay Devgn's "Mayday" and a yet untitled film co-starring Prabhas and Deepika Padukone.
