Big B's struggle with Bhumi Pednekar's Insta-generation lingo will fill your heart with joy
New Delhi | Jagran Entertainment Desk: Amitabh Bachchan's social media plugins truly make up the 'Jalsa' of Throwbacks, reminisces, and among the present-day duplexed complexities of his life and work, involve the new-generation lingo and Instagram terminologies he struggles the most at understanding.
The latest one involves Bachchan being the 'Baller' of an actor and human being, which leaves his fans, admirers and colleagues in absolute awe of the energy and enthusiasm which Big-B possesses at the age of 77.
However, as it goes out in the virtual world, the '101 Not Out' actor doesn't understand what does the 'Baller' mean, despite the fact he's been asking for the meaning of it for 'quite a while' and no one is telling him about that.
Amitabh Bachchan ran back the memory lanes to take out a moment of absolute serenity from a calmly enthusing background of Kashmir valley back when he was shooting for 'Kabhi Kabhie' (1976), and put it together with his transition into an exceptionally old man's character in the yet-to-be-released 'Gulaabo Sitaabo' (2020).
Among his fans and admirers, actress Bhumi Pednekar couldn't appreciate enough of Bachchan's enigma.
Bhoomi commented, "44 years later and still giving us such memorable characters...I'm telling you you're the most baller person ever (sic)."

Srinagar, Kashmir .. ‘KABHI KABHIE’ .. writing the verse for the song ‘kabhi kabhi mere dil mein khayaal aata hai ..’ AND .. Lucknow, month of May .. 44 years later ( 1976 to 2020 ) Gulabo Sitabo .. and song playing .. ‘ban ke madaari ka bandar.. ‘ क्या थे , और क्या बना दिया अब !!!
Admiration aside, Big-B couldn't help but wonder, what does being a 'baller' mean after all?
"@bhumipednekar arre...Bhumi...what is 'baller' ??? (I'm asking for quite a while and nobody is telling me what it means)," Big-B replied back.
"Baller" is basically an informal and millennial-seasoned way to describe something or someone as excellent or impressive.
Big B awaits the release of Shoojit Sircar's Gulabo Sitabo, co-starring Ayushmann Khurrana. Amid substantial opposition from multiplex chains snubbed down by COVID-19 pandemic, the film is instead slated to release on Amazon Prime Video on June 12.
