Amitabh Bachchan Tweets 'Bharat Mata Ki Jai' Amid India's Name Change Buzz

The recent controversy surrounding the potential name change of India to Bharat started with the circulation of a dinner invitation on social media. The invite, for a G-20 dinner scheduled for September 9, referred to the ‘President of Bharat’ instead of the usual ‘President of India.’ This change stirred up mixed reactions.

One prominent figure who voiced his opinion on the matter was actor Amitabh Bachchan. In a tweet, he expressed, “Bharat mata ki jai,” accompanied by the Tricolour and a red flag emoji. His tweet garnered 7,000 likes in just half an hour, with some showing support and others questioning his choice. One user even asked if he preferred the term ‘Bharat’ over ‘India,’ while another pointed out that ‘INDIA is Bharat.’


However, not everyone welcomed the name change. Political leaders like Shashi Tharoor expressed their concerns. Tharoor tweeted, “While there is no constitutional objection to calling India ‘Bharat,’ which is one of the country’s two official names, I hope the government will not disregard ‘India.’ It holds immeasurable brand value built over centuries. We should use both words to preserve our historical identity, recognized worldwide.”

Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma supported the change, tweeting, “REPUBLIC OF BHARAT – happy and proud that our civilization is boldly moving towards AMRIT KAAL.”

On the professional front, Amitabh has been occupied with the 15th season of Kaun Banega Crorepati.
