Amitabh Bachchan, a  social media hound,  keeps an extremely busy schedule, but he never forgets to wish his fellow actors on their birthday. 

The actors sometimes forget to reply or ignore his texts. Then, Big B, the original  Lucknow boy, teaches them good manners by tweeting them public reminders.

Buzzfeed notes these incidents have been happening rather too frequently and come up with what it does best, a list.    

Here is a list of such actors who received tweets from Big B asking them to reply to his birthday wishes:

1. Ranveer Singh

Recently, Ranveer had responded to a tweet from NEXA, a brand he endorses, thanking them for their wishes on his birthday. Big B quickly tweeted a pic of the response and asked Ranveer why had he not replied to his own text. Ranveer replied back saying that he had indeed texted Big B and that he was in fact among the first people to wish him. 

2. Sonam Kapoor

Sonam replied to a tweet from Suniel Shetty thanking him for the wishes. Then Big B asked her in a tweet why she had not replied back to his SMS and even finishing the tweet with an ‘aaarrggghh’!! An embarrassed Sonam tweeted back saying she had in fact not received a text and had replied to Abhishek Bachchan’s text and apologised for not knowing about it. 

3. Shilpa Shetty Kundra

Big B had tweeted out to Shilpa wishing her a happy birthday and asking why he hadn’t gotten a reply from her nor her husband Raj. Shilpa then tweeted back by thanking him for his wishes and saying that her birthday would be incomplete without his wishes and that the video he had sent was a double bonanza. 

4. Preity Zinta


He tweeted Preity wishing her a happy birthday. He added that  he had tweeted to her as she had not replied to his text messages.

5. Akshay Kumar

He tweeted Akshay asking him if he had received his message or if his phone was jammed. He wished him love and success. 

Buzzfeed notes that a reason Big B is getting ignored is while he still uses SMS to send wishes, people barely use it anymore except for getting OTPs.
