As soon as the pictures of Amitabh Bachchan striking a pose with his new swanky car landed on the internet, the megastar started drawing ire from the netizens. It’s known to all that our country’s economic condition is anything but good, and amid all the chaos Big B’s lavish purchase didn’t go down well with the netizens. Apart from criticising him, netizens also compared him with Sonu Sood, and asked him to learn from the latter on how to help the needy.
Here’s How Netizens Reacted To Big B’s New Swanky Car
A user wrote, “In this pandemic why these stars won’t help the needy people? Just to show off all this they will do. They should come out and see how people are dying for job, food, etc. These stars should learn from Sonu Sood to help needy.”
Another user slammed the Pink actor and wrote, “Still a child, gets happy buying a new car. Grow up boss, do something meaningful. Sonu sood spent crores helping people and amitabh spends a crore on a car.”
“Pandemic has taught us minimalist living is important…these biggies won’t learn it,” wrote a netizen.

Big B’s Fans Defend Him
A few fans also defended Amitabh Bachchan and asked others not to be so judgemental of his purchase, as he has earned the luxury owing to his hard work.
