The Bachchans...

I thought theres no better time than to write abt this if not now..esp wen the Abhiwarya wedding is happening now..I have always wondered how much money the Bachchans wud have amassed ( though its all the result of hardwork.I am not a great fan of the Bachchans..both the BIG and the junior B. Being celebrities, they cud do so much for the public, society. I have always felt that the Bachchans are always in the spotlight for awards, honours and recognitions.
Unlike the southern side, where actors like chiranjeevi who stands for the cause of donating blood, and kamala hasan who is for donating various organs, rajnikanth for various social acitivities..i dont find the Bachchans involved in any..somehow, these ppl dont appeal to me as the First Family of Bollywood..May be its time we think of transferring this title to someone else..

Sorry Subha! I can't disagree more with you on this one. When it comes to bollywood, really there are no better actors (not even CLOSE) when compared with Bachhan family's pedigree. They are the bollywood no.1 family for their acting and charisma, not for any other reason. You should read Amitabh's blogs and more about him. He is one of the humblest actors and he strongly doesn't believe in publicizing what he does for charity, because he doesn't have to unlike some others who spend a minute fraction of their wealth and publicize and make many people (including you) believe how great they are. For example if Rajnikanth donates even a crore rupees, don't you think thats like a drop in a bucket for him. Why doesn't he do it anonymously, tell me why??? Are you doing charity for others' good or your own good. I just don't think very high of some celebrity when I read the news that this person donated this much. Mind you this is just an example, because Rajanikanth is a super humble guy.

There are lots of celebrities who donate anonymously and that is the way it should be. When Ayrton Senna died, we came to know that he had donated $400 million to childrens organizations (more than half of his wealth) and he had kept it a secret and intended to keep it that way.

There was a time, when it was said that in ranking Amitabh was 1 to 10 and every other star tried for
11th and further down. Even now I think he is still one of the best. you should see bhoothnath.
