This is not the first time when senior Bachchan is taking a dig on a commentator, in 2016 he did the same thing with commentator Harsha Bhogle indirectly, “T 2184 – With all due respects, it would be really worthy of an Indian commentator to speak more about our players than others all the time,” Bachchan tweeted on March 24, 2016.

But the recent tweet on biased commentary by Bachchan is not making fans happy and they think it is again against Harsha Bhogle so they started reacting on it.
If your indication is towards @bhogleharsha then you need to work on your knowledge of the game.

We should enjoy the game. I don’t know what’s your problem with commentators. They have to be neutral, god knows why you keep calling them biased. Does any commentator criticise your acting? Why you keep intervening in their profession?@sanjaymanjrekar @bhogleharsha @amolsurwase

He always do this to get limelight, professional actor.
But please don’t do this. This is sport not your field of acting.

Uncle Since ur a senior, u think u always have right to say anything about anyone. As usual You continue to spit venom about @bhogleharsha but he will remain one of the bestest commentator after Tony Greig.
