As Aishwarya Rai turned 38 yesterday, media went crazy with the reports of her so called birthday bash, the celebrity guest list, the attire and of course the gifts.
But these reports dint go down well with Amitabh Bachchan, who turned to his BlogAdda blog to show his displeasure.
"The entire day and the afternoon has been spent in laughing among ourselves on the ridiculous coverage time and attention being given in the electronic media on the birthday of Aishwarya ... all of which is completely and entirely made up! How the celebrations are on, what gifts we are giving Aishwarya, who the guests are, what they are to be wearing and on... when truth is that nothing of the sort is happening here at home, or any truth in what is being spread about the gifts and the occasion" he wrote.
"This is sheer desperation - a desire to brush up their screenplay skills, of how to design stories to fill in as it were the hours of time required to be filled in for the channel,” he added.
Amitabh Bachchan wasn’t especially happy with the fact that media tried to sabotage a ceremony as auspicious as a ‘Godh Bharai’ just to get a story.
"The still cameras are no less. Invading every possible breach to get something to sell off to the print and the net ... and with attitude! There's is the loudest noise at functions; they live in the world that the function has been conducted for only them. They shall be right up your nose, block guests from seeing anything and if you dare to move them, they are the first to raise voice and presence by their authority of importance. It needs a strong will to control them. Not that this is not possible, it is. We conducted our Hanuman Chalisa release with absolute control. They stayed at their designated area and in disciplined manner were able to get what they wanted.
On the day of the 'Godh Bharai', they were pushing sneakily their equipment between the cracks in the doorway to the house to get that desired picture or any picture. When controlled by security, they spat on them. Yes they actually spit on the security. The restraint shown by those affected by this indecency, was exemplary ... else ..." he concluded.
