Amitabh Bachchan aka BigB aka Sr Bachchan is an eminent personality. He is an excellent human being who is loved by all in the Indian entertainment industry. His talent and contribution are recognized not only in India but by the Government of France as well. Currently, at the age of 76 years, Mr. Bachchan does a lot more than a youngster can. He epitomizes how one should blend the old with the new and live a quality life. And this shows through his penchant for social media.
Amitabh Bachchan believes in the spirit of social media and is often found making interesting tweets. This time around as well, Big B made a tweet which piqued the interest of many.
What happened was, Mr. Bachchan was facing troubles using his Samsung S9 phone. These troubles led him to tweet about them and seek help from followers and other Twitter users.
Here is the tweet by Mr. Amitabh Bachchan:

It is interesting to note that actually, Mr. Bachchan is the brand ambassador for OnePlus. The mobile brand is extremely popular and Big B is often seen endorsing it. However, seems like he is currently using the Samsung S9 instead of OnePlus. Wonder what the brand officials have to say about this.
Well, coming back to Big B’s original tweet, the MD of another mobile brand took the opportunity to promote his brand. And the brand in question is Xiaomi. Yes, the global VP and Xiaomi India MD took this opportunity to urge Sr Bachchan to switch phones.
Here is what Manu Kumar Jain tweeted:
Dear Amit Ji.
It’s time to switch phones. You can maybe try the most loved technology brand in India ❤️😇

Now, we don’t know whether Amitabh Bachchan would be taking on Manu’s offer or not. Especially since Samsung wasn’t far behind in taking note of this tweet. Seems like Samsung not only noticed the tweet but took action as well.
They apparently fixed Big B’s phone, because the veteran soon tweeted the following:
T 3025 – PHEEWWWWW .. !! phone resolved .. SAMSUNG connected immediately after Tweet and all is well .. what a world we are living in .. I mean it was the most disturbed night of all nights .. why ..?? because the MOBILE had gone dead .. I mean WHAT ..??!!!

Now that’s some quick response on part of Samsung, right?
