Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan feels people who don’t admire us and rather abuse and hate us are equally important in our lives as they keep us “alive and worthy”.

“Abuse, disdain and hate shall keep us alive and worthy... For if we were not, there would be no abuse,” Amitabh posted on his blog on Thursday night. “Some shall never ever ring the door bell to announce that you are good or liked... There will be some though that shall ring that bell to admire love and perhaps give you some affection... Blessed are they that do so... And blessed are they that do not,” the Piku actor said.

The 73-year-old said people who stand against you should also be “encouraged”. He said: “The ‘do not’ is better blessed... For they are the ones that need to be encouraged... Their encouragement shall provoke... Provocation is most important in life... It creates strength... Will and power to disprove to stand alone and win and to without demonstrating any power or status, be lifted to the glory that others shall believe they had possessed... That then is victory.”

The actor also shared pictures from the shooting of Ajooba...

On film front, Amitabh will next be seen in TE3N and Pink.
