Amitabh Bachchan, who has been called the great hero of the century, is resting at home these days, because recently he has undergone a cataract surgery in his eye. Shortly before his surgery, Amitabh had mentioned about the surgery in his blog, but what was not told about it, due to which all his fans started praying for his recovery. Amitabh’s dank is as much in the media today as it was before. Media persons still stand in the crowd for a glimpse of him, but there was a time in Amitabh’s life when he was banned in every way for 15 years, not a little. We are talking about the time when a complete emergency was imposed in the country. It was mentioned by Amitabh Bachchan himself in one of his blogs that he was completely banned from the media at one time. Come, in today’s article, we will tell you what were the reasons, due to which the media had banned Big B for 15 years.
Why did the media ban Amitabh:
Everyone is aware of that, both Amitabh and Rajiv Gandhi were very good friends. During the Emergency, when many movies and film magazines were banned, Amitabh Bachchan had to pay the damages. Let me tell you that at the time when the censor was implemented, all the people got angry on Amitabh Bachchan on film magazines. As a result, the media banned Amitabh without declaring it one-sided.
Why became the target of Amitabh The
When there was an emergency, there were no newspapers for film news, nor were there any kind of channels and social media instruments. In this way, only through the magazines, the news of the films used to be heard. When the magazine was censored, it came to the mind of the editors of some magazines that Amitabh Bachchan is associated with the Gandhi family and is also very close, so this has been done on his advice.
Big B was oblivious to the news of his ban
At the time when Indira Gandhi lost the election in 1977, editors of big magazines like Cineblitz and Stardust called a meeting and reached a decision that they now publish the news of Amitabh Bachchan and any photos related to him in their magazines. will not do. So for a long time Amitabh could not even realize that people had banned him from the media.
Big B got angry, did this work
As soon as Amitabh Bachchan came to know that the media had banned him unofficially, Amitabh Bachchan got angry on this and angry Big B got the revenge on this, after which Big B thought Strictly refused to interview any popular, non-discussed magazine and did a photoshoot for magazines and decided to follow this path.
Amitabh was given a side
When Amitabh was banned, at that time there was this scene of that era, even if someone from the forgotten Big B was seen in the photo, that photo was not published or Amitabh Bachchan was cut from the side, Then the magazine was published. From then onwards, Big B started cutting himself off from any event or grouping photo, so that his photo was not cut before his appearance. Likewise, this media ban on Amitabh lasted for about 15 years.
Revenge scene after film Coolie
Let me tell you that during the shooting of Amitabh’s film ‘Coolie’ in the year 1982, when Big B got hurt and he got injured, his fans all over the country sought his blessings in every way. Seeing such unwavering love of fans for Big B, the editors of the film magazines also felt heartbroken and Starcast Magazine owner Nari Heera inquired about Amitabh Bachchan’s health. Starcast magazine not only removed its ban on top of Big B, but also published a special edition on Amitabh Bachchan and wrote articles about him.
Ban was not carried away even after the publication of the edition
When Nardi Heera, the owner of Stardust, came to meet Amitabh Bachchan, Amitabh asked him what was going on in his mind and said that you were angry with me, then why did you write this article on me. On this matter of Big B, magazine owner Nari Heera said that we definitely wanted you to fail, but he did not want to die at all. It was clear from their fact that the altercation between the two had ended, the media ban on Lynn Big B was still going on.
Amitabh’s press conference
After all, Big B was still banned, then another earthquake occurred in his life. In 1989, Amitabh Bachchan’s name cropped up in the Bofors scandal, due to which he once again came into the headlines. Then the troubled Amitabh called the press to the press conference through his PR on the set of the film ‘Ajuba’.
In this press conference organized by him, Amitabh clarified that I have already left the politics and let me also tell that I had no hand in the senatorship implemented during the Emergency. It was only after this press conference that Big B’s media ban was canceled and he once again became a favorite superstar of Amitabh Media.
After all, what was the real reason for banning hereThe
An author whose name is Bhavana Somaya. In his book ‘Amitabh Bachchan: The Legend’, he gave the exact reason for banning Big B. Let me tell you that at one time the show of Stardust magazine was boycotted by Dilip Kumar, in which he was also supported by Amitabh Bachchan. When the magazine owner came to know that both of them (Amitabh-Dileep) are behind his magazine’s boycott, both of them were banned. Later this ban of Amitabh was also added to Emergency.
