A word of caution: If you're ever so lucky to have Amitabh Bachchan text you on your birthday, make sure you text back. If possible, immediately. Before he has a chance to fire up Twitter on his phone and @ you.
Sonam Kapoor and Ranveer Singh have learnt it the hard way — and now Anushka Sharma got schooled by Big B on text-iquette. But in the process, the man himself earned some curious tags. Yes, Tweeple are calling him a stalker, and we think it's kinda legit.
Here's what happened. Anushka, who rang in her first birthday after marriage with hubby Virat Kohli on May 1, was called out by Bachchan for not responding to his birthday wish. "@AnushkaSharma .. Anushka .. this is Amitabh Bachchan @Srbachchan .. wished you on May 1st via sms .. no response .. checked they said you changed number .. sent greetings again .. love and wishes .. you looked radiant at the IPL game last night," he posted.

We gotta say, that ticks some major stalker boxes for us. Following up on a no-reply situation? Check. Bringing up the changed phone number? Check. 'You looked great that other day'? Check. Is Big B stalker-ish? Also, why is he introducing himself? *Nervous laughter*
The post didn't go down well with Tweeple, who started calling him a "stalker" and "creep".

They even brought the Kathua rape issue, on which he had chosen to remain silent.

He failed to acknowledge the #Kathua #Asifa rape, made movie #pink but don't follow it on real life, wish anyone but speak against the wrong otherwise u will come under the same roof. #DoubleStandards I respected u but now u lost it. #Kathua #unnaocase #betikhatremeinhai— ☪Shajar Abbas☪ (@abbas_shajar) May 3, 2018
