"Tu cheez badi hai musk musk" posted the superstar on Friday, writing in Hindi using an eastern UP dialect, after the trademark blue verification badge was back on the megastar's Twitter.
Amitabh Bachchan, the legendary Bollywood actor, took to Twitter in his inimitable style to thank Twitter CEO Elon Musk for restoring the blue checkmark on his social media handle.
The Musk-owned social media platform had previously removed blue ticks from legacy accounts that had not purchased its paid Blue service, and several celebrities had lost their blue ticks, including Bachchan, Sachin Tendulkar, Virat Kohli, and others.
“Tu cheez badi hai musk musk” posted the superstar on Friday, writing in Hindi using an eastern Uttar Pradesh dialect, after the trademark blue verification badge was back on the megastar’s Twitter. Big B interchanged the lyrics of the song “Tu Cheez Badi Hai Mast Mast” from the 1994 film “Mohra” to thank “big brother” Musk .
“Hey Musk brother! We thank you very much! Blue Lotus (blue tick) is added in front of my name! Now what do I tell you, brother? I feel like singing a song, Will you like to listen? Ok listen “Tu cheez badi hai musk musk… tu chiz badi hai musk”
Bachchan had previously used social media to return his blue tick, which he referred to as the “neel kamal.”
The ‘Piku’ actor also folded his hands (he used an emoticon) to request that his verification badge be returned. According to the megastar, he had already paid for the services.
Twitter had previously announced the implementation of a paid subscription service, which charges USD 8 for the microblogging site’s blue verification badge. Those who did not pay or purchase the service in a timely manner lost the blue checkmark on their handles.
