The IPL fever has not spared even megastar Amitabh Bachchan and he doesn't miss watching matches especially when his favourite team - Mumbai Indians is playing.

However, the actor is upset over the two successive defeats of Mumbai Indians and expressed his frustration to "EF" (Extended Family) as he refers to his readers on his blog.

"Doing nothing and sitting in front of the 'box' an entire day is a feat by itself and I just did it. Albeit a little frustrating because the home team lost in the final moments," Bachchan wrote after Mumbai Indians was defeated by Kings X1 Punjab in a close match last week.

Sunday's loss to Royal Challengers Bangalore made Big B just say, "The Mumbai Indians lost!! AAArrrgraahhhhh".

Bachchan has just returned after a overseas schedule of his home production Paa and is presently recording a song for Ram Gopal Verma's Rann.

Ever since his return, Bachchan has been glued to television watching the IPL.

During a media interaction to announce the 10th IIFA's venue last week, Bachchan asked the organisers to switch on the television in the hotel room, so that he could catch up with the ongoing match.
