Megastar Amitabh Bachchan has become the first Bollywood personality to score 20 million followers on Twitter and has thanked his fans and well-wishers on reaching the milestone.
The 73-year-old thespian, who has given hits like Sholay, Deewar and Piku, is ahead of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who has 18.8 million followers.
Big B took to Twitter on Tuesday night to express his excitement of getting 20 million followers on the micro-blogging website. “Badumba! 20 million! Thank you all... Now to 30 million! And your time starts now!” Amitabh tweeted. Amitabh’s Twitter account went live in May 2010, and the actor has ever since been staying in connection with his fans, whom he fondly calls his “ef” or his “extended family”.
On the work front, Amitabh will next be seen in TE3N directed by debutant Ribhu Dasgupta.
