Bollywood icon Amitabh Bachchan has once again proved his wit and humour as he thanked Twitter CEO Elon Musk for restoring his blue verification badge on the social media platform. The actor, in his inimitable style, took to Twitter to express his gratitude towards Musk.

Amitabh Bacchan Tweet on getting back blue tick

“Tu cheez badi hai Musk Musk,” posted the legendary actor in Hindi, using an eastern Uttar Pradesh dialect. He replaced the lyrics of the famous song “Tu Cheez Badi Hai Mast Mast” from the 1994 film “Mohra” to thank the “big brother” Musk.

The megastar, Amitabh Bachchan had earlier expressed his disappointment after his blue verification badge, which he called “neel kamal,” was taken away by Twitter. Amitabh Bachchan claimed, he had already paid for the services and urged for the return of his verification badge, even folding his hands (using an emoticon) to request it. “Aye Musk bhaiya! Bahut bahut dhanyavaad det hain ham aapka! U neel kamal lag gava hamaar naam ke aage! Ab ka bataee bhaiya! Gaana gaye ka man karat hai hamaar! Sanabo ka? I leo suna: “tu cheez badi hai musk-musk, tu cheez badi hai, musk (sic).”

However, Amitabh Bachchan tried to place the Indian flag sticker alongside his username when he lost his blue tick again. The legendary superstar referred to Twitter as ‘mausi’ and vented out in the most hilarious fashion.

It can be read, “Arey Twitter mausi! Gazab ho gava!! U neel kamal lagaye ke baad, neel kamalwa akele pada-pada, ghabraat raha! Toh hum socha, tanik oka company dei de! Te bagal mein okey, hum apna jhanda [emoji of Indian flag] gaadh diye! Arey, gaadhey mein time laga naahi, ki kamalwa bhaag gava! Batao! Ab? Ka kari? (sic).”

The Musk-owned social media platform had removed blue ticks from legacy accounts, including several celebrities like Amitabh Bachchan, Sachin Tendulkar, Virat Kohli, and others. But the “Sholay” actor was not one to stay down for long and quickly found a creative way to thank Musk for restoring his blue tick.

Campaign on removing Twitter blue marks

Recently, Twitter has started removing the verification check marks from thousands of users’ profiles, including those of celebrities, politicians, and sportspersons. This move has caused chaos in India, where many high-profile personalities have lost their verified status, increasing the potential risk of impersonation. The move has impacted even the Indian government’s ministries and departments, raising the potential risk of impersonation. The Ministry of Electronics and IT (MeitY), Department of Telecommunications (DoT), and the Press Information Bureau’s official handle, among others, have lost their verification check mark.

Well-known Indian celebrities, including actor Shah Rukh Khan, cricketers Virat Kohli, Amitabh Bachchan, Rohit Sharma, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, and Smriti Mandhana, have also been affected. Several prominent politicians, such as Arvind Kejriwal, M K Stalin, Yogi Adityanath, and Mamata Banerjee, have lost their blue check marks, along with political parties like the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), All India Trinamool Congress, CPI(M), and the DMK.

The changes came after Twitter’s acquisition by Elon Musk, who introduced a subscription service called Twitter Blue. The blue verification checkmark is now only available for purchase by subscribers, at USD 8/month (Rs. 657.37) via the web and USD 11/month (Rs. 903.76) through the in-app payment on iOS and Android. Twitter posted from their official handle in March, “On April 1st, we will begin winding down our legacy verified program and removing legacy verified checkmarks. To keep your blue checkmark on Twitter, individuals can sign up for Twitter Blue.

The blue tick was introduced by Twitter in 2009 to help users identify genuine accounts of public interest, such as those belonging to celebrities, politicians, companies and brands, and news organizations. The verification check mark was also meant to tackle false information.
