BH CORRESPONDENT, Mumbai: If there’s one actor who can give serious competition to the millennials, then it is undoubtedly Amitabh Bachchan. We know the GEN Y has their own lingo and way of communication. But did you know that it was Big B who had invented the abbreviation for Karan Johar’s family drama Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham — K3G — on the set of the film? Well, Big B just told us that.
“On the sets of ‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham’ .. I devised the term K3G for the film and it stuck .. it happens now with almost all ..,” he wrote in his official blog.
And now, has come up with a term for his upcoming film Gulabo Sitabo with Ayushmann Khurrana. And that’s ‘GiBoSiBo’.
And then the veteran actor went onto explain in his blog, that “there is also the trend among the new gen or the next gen or whatever gen they belong to, to abbreviate conversation .. there is or they have no time for exaggeration or length for it is time consumption .. the speed of converse also is as rapid as a bullet out of a gun .. LOL, ROTFL, GOAT ..”
And then, he came up with the abbreviation ‘GiBoSiBo’ for Shoojit Sircar’s upcoming release Gulabo Sitabo. The legendary actor thought it was CAC — “Cool As Cat”. “Its cool na .. ? So thats what it shall be .. for me at least .. shared it with PR team .. they looked at me as though they thought I was suffering from what Bhaskor was in Piku ! Take or leave it .. me is going ahead with it .. !! GiBoSiBo .. yeaaeeeaaahh !!,” he wrote in the blog. He also tweeted about the same.
