Mumbai: Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan took to his inimitable style to thank Twitter chief Elon Musk for restoring the blue checkmark by posting “Tu cheez badi hai musk musk” on Friday on his social media handle.
The Musk-owned Twitter had earlier removed blue ticks from several celebrities including Bachchan, Sachin Tendulkar, Virat Kohli. When it was restored, Amitabh Bachchan interchanged the lyrics of the song “Tu Cheez Badi Hai Mast Mast” from the 1994 film “Mohra” to thank “big brother” Musk .
“Hey Musk brother! We thank you very much! Blue Lotus (blue tick) is added in front of my name! Now what do I tell you, brother? I feel like singing a song, Will you like to listen? Ok listen “Tu cheez badi hai musk musk… tu chiz badi hai musk”

Bachchan had earlier taken to the social media platform to return his blue tick which he referred to as the “neel kamal.” He used folded hands icon urging for the return of his verification badge. The megastar claimed that he had already paid for the services.
The blue tick serves as a mean to protect well-known individuals from impersonation and tackling false information. Twitter first introduced the blue check mark system in 2009 to help users identify that celebrities, politicians, companies and brands, news organizations and other accounts “of public interest” were genuine and not impostors or parody accounts. After Musk’s takeover it has become a paid service.
