With the advent of social media platforms like Twitter, Instagram, Facebook etc, many celebrities including the film fraternity have been using them them to be in touch with their admirers and fans. But the very same platforms are used for cyber bullying, infringement of privacy, fake news and trolling.

Most of the celebrated public figures especially from sports and film industry have been trolled some time or the other, I find that Abhishek Bachchan is one of the most trolled among the Hindi film actors. In the initial stages, most of the trolling was about his acting caliber. He was even trolled for the box office failures of some of his later films for his ‘useless acting’ or ‘acting like a rock’ even though to my mind, he had acted better than his initial films.

In the recent period, his trolls have become personal to the extent that even his wife and daughter have not been spared. He has been mocked for staying with his parents. He has been questioned as to how he had financed his vacation abroad when he had not worked in the films for a long time. This was in the context of his 2-year sabbatical from the films to concentrate on his sports teams of kabbadi and football. Netizens have also trolled him that whatever films he got was because of his father. Some trolls have been directed towards him in a most uncivilized manner and in bad tastes, almost like short hate speeches.

There may be some psychological reasons as to why netizens troll the celebrities. In the case of Abhishek Bachchan, I think, the trolls mainly emanated from the people’s high expectations from him as an actor considering that he was the son of megastar Amitabh Bachchan and one of the finest actresses, Jaya Bahaduri. It was very unfortunate for him to be compared with his father for his acting when he commenced his career as an actor in 2000. In a way, he was competing with his father to find a slot for himself as a successful actor when his father continued to be in demand from the film producers.

It is quite possible that in the initial stages of his acting career, Abhishek Bachchan might have got the benefit of his father’s recommendation. But an actor cannot sustain his acting career for a long time on recommendations. If it was so, actors like Rajiv Kapoor, Kunal Kapoor, Kunal Goswami and some more would not have been dumped by Hindi film industry as actors. During his 18 years of filmy career, Abhishek Bachchan has acted in 54 films, most of them under big banners.

Abhishek Bachchan may not be as charismatic and crowd puller as compared with some of his counterparts and his father. But in my view, he is as good an actor as Khans, Hrithik Roshan and Akhshya Kumar. Among his films I had watched, he has done quite well in ‘Yuva” (2004), ‘Bunty Aur Babli’ (2005), ‘Guru’ (2007) and ‘Dostana’ (2008). I also liked him in ‘Raavan’(2010) based on the picturization of songs. He did the same mistake as Shashi Kapoor did in the 1970s – working in films with multi-stars. In this process, he diluted his image as a solo hero in the film.

‘Jhoom Baraabar Jhoom’ (2007) was one of those multi-starrer film in which beside himself, the main actors included Preity Zinta, Bobby Deol, Lara Dutta and Amitabh Bachchan in a guest role. The film flopped at the box office. When the film fails, it is the director who should get the blame as he failed to connect the film with the audience. But our netizens got one more opportunity to troll their favourite bait, Abhishek Bachchan.

Anyway, the redeeming part of the film is the excellent songs composed by music director, Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy. There are 4 songs of which one multi-version song has been covered in the Blog. Here is the second song from the film – my favourite ‘dhaage tod laao chaandni se noor ke’ rendered by Rahat Fateh Ali Khan and Mahalakshmi Iyer. Gulzar saab’s unusual imageries are evident in the mukhda of the song.

It is a romantic song from the film of the new millennium with a soul of the golden period of Hindi film music.

metallic sound


dhaage tod laao chaandni se noor ke
ghoonghat hi bana lo raushni se noor ke
ho o o o
dhaage tod laao chaandni se noor ke
ghoonghat hi bana lo raushni se noor ke
sharma gayi to
aagosh mein lo
ho saanson se uljhi
rahe meri saansein

bol na halke halke
bol na halke halke
hontth se halke halke
bol na halke
bol na halke halke
bol na halke halke
hontth se halke halke
bol na halke

aa neend kaa sauda karein
ik khwaab den ik khwaab n
ek khwaab to aankhon mein hai
ek chaand ke takiye tale

kitne dino se
yeh aasmaan bhi
soya nahin hai
isko sula den
bol na halke halke
bol na halke halke
hontth se halke halke
bol na halke

bol na halke halke
bol na halke halke
hontth se halke halke
bol na halke

ma pa ni sa ga ma re
ga ma re
pa ni pa da
ga ma ga pa

re ga re ga re ga re ga …….re ga
sa re re sa re re …………….
ni sa ni sa sa sa ………

umrein lagi kehte huye
do lafz thhe ek baat thhi
woh ek din sau saal ka
sau saal ki wo raat thhin

kaise lage jo chupchaap dono
o pal pal mein poori
sadiyan beeta dein

bol na halke halke
bol na halke halke
honth se halke

o dhaage tod laao chaandni se noor ke
o o o
ghoonghat hi bana lo raushni se noor ke

sharma gai to
aagosh mein lo
ho saanson se uljhi
rahi meri saansein
bol na halke halke
bol na halke halke
hontth se halke halke
bol na halke
bol na
halke halke
bol na halke halke
hontth se halke halke
bol na halke

Absolutely correct about the trolls. Previously people used to comment in private now with the onslaught of social media people are out in the open with their personal say on all matters under the sun, whether they have knowledge about the topic or not.
But the song is a beauty in its own place. Specially with Gulzar as the wordmaster
Thank you! Sadanandji for living up to your warning. 😉
