Dear Mr Bachchan,

In response to your message to me, my humble reply:

Dear Sir, Let’s consider: if my fraternity won’t pull me up for that ‘jackass’ comment, could it possibly be because they see some sense in my comment?

Or could it be because that’s what fraternity does: Stands by each other?

You should know, Sir.

I don’t remember your fraternity pulling you up for the attack on photographers by security outside your house during Abhishek’s wedding. (ref: )

I don’t remember your fraternity so much as expressing outrage when Abhishek ‘allegedly’ bashed up a photographer on a film set. (ref:

But your concern Sir, is the use of the term ‘jackass’.

A strong word, perhaps, but appropriate I think, to express horror at the complete lack of sensitivity involved in a film promotion of that nature.

However controversial my choice of words, it is me taking a ‘stand’, Sir. Expressing my ‘opinion’. Two words your fraternity seems largely unfamiliar with.

Regarding your outrage/disappointment at my choice of words: Apologies, Sir. If expressing my opinion lowers your impression of me, then that is a cross I shall have to bear.

But finally, by your own logic, Sir: will your fraternity pull up Akshay for this tasteless gimmick? Or do you think it is innovative too?

Respectfully yours,
Rajeev Masand
Most interesting thing which I found was that on the page where Rajeev replied above it there was a google ad which has Naughty Aishwarya pic and videos ad.

Mr Bachchan is fighting for Akshay Kumar because he is named as Jack ass .If its all about fraternity then he should also fight against his beloved advertisement fraternity which floods him with money.
