Abuse on social media provokes me to betterment: Bachchan

Mumbai: Megastar Amitabh Bachchan has said he always takes abuse on social media in a positive light and he feels it drives him to strive for "betterment".

The 75-year-old actor said he does not spend time thinking about the trolls as he would rather concentrate on work than pay attention to them. 

"I have no time for abuse... I have time for my work, for my Ef and this blog... I do not have time to attend to abuse... I love it... Actually... For it provokes me to betterment... Provokes me to get bigger and vastly improve my self, my demeanour, my standing, my dignity... If the abuse leads me to this... I am grateful to them... Do more... For it drives me better and longer with better enlightened mind," Bachchan wrote on his blog.

The actor said he wishes the abuse had "greater intensity towards" him.

"Attention given to such translates into what the troller actually wanted - NOTICE... and the Ef has fallen into the trap...

"My love to all... and if any of you would wish to bring me abuse and falsehood, I shall welcome it with open arms," he wrote.
