Amitabh Bachchan may be a mega superstar, but he’s your typical technologically challenged grandfather at heart. Oh come on, if you have grandparents at home, you will be able to relate to this. They’re completely clueless with their phones. And any minor glitch is enough to make them panicky and anxious.
Amitabh Bachchan who owns a Samsung Galaxy S9 is one such example. Recently, his phone stopped working due to some reason. In a moment of panic, he posted on Twitter asking for his fans’ help.

Of course Twitter had some hilarious responses to this. Check them out:
Some people genuinely tried to help him:
" Simply press and hold both the volume down and power buttons together for about 10 second " Your device will work as Normal..

Amitabh is the brand ambassador for OnePlus, and of course, that invited trolls:

We’d probably do the same if we were in his position:

Trolls were downright savage:
Dip it in boiling water thrice and throw the phone. Buy a new phone with the Panama money. Done👍
PS: no need to thank me😛

In fact, Xiaomi had a smart offer for him:
Dear Amit Ji.
It's time to switch phones. You can maybe try the most loved technology brand in India ❤️😇

Do you have something you’d like to tell Mr. Bachchan?
