Big B blasts media report on Aishwarya's health

February 19, 2010 15:51 IST

An angry Amitabh Bachchan has blasted, what he called a "false" and "insensitive" media report on his daughter-in-law Aishwarya Rai's health saying, "I shall not tolerate it."

A city based tabloid, published a report saying Aishwarya had been trying to conceive for some time but has been unable to do as she is suffering from stomach tuberculosis.

Bachchan, who was "too incensed and angered" by the claims of the tabloid, posted the copy of the report on his blog calling it the "lowest quality of journalism".

"I write to you today in deep anguish, pain and disgust. This article is completely false, completely fabricated, unsubstantiated, insensitive and of the lowest quality of journalism there ever was," Bachchan wrote on his blog.

"I am the head of my family. Aishwarya is not my daughter-in -law, she is my daughter, a woman, a lady in my house and home. If anyone will speak derogatorily about her, I shall fight for her till my last breath. If you have something to say to the men in the house, Abhishek or me, I shall bear it. BUT ... if you shall make injudicious remarks on the women in my home, I shall not tolerate it !!!," Bachchan added.

The 67-year-old superstar further wrote, "I am too incensed and angered by the contents!! Not a single portion of the article is true!! I have much to comment upon on this, but shall hold on till another day."
