    and it seems like Ash is wearing the Tom Ford Olivia sunglasses too!

    how do they vote to get ink on that finger – its just looks so random to be dotted on the middle one of all

  7. pdabre at | | Reply

    I agree with you pnp…. that looks like it is done on purpose by bachchans.

  8. tehreem at | | Reply

    umm ok….it looks weird. This is not something a fmaily should be doing together but it would have been something else if Jaya had done it lol. ANyway…I dont know if they meant to do that. THey are pretty dignified. Maybe they were tired of the media. WHo knows?? Well…Ash looks nice :)

    Aww.. This is just too cute!

    you guys forgot to include sonam as one of the people that got it right :)
    im kinda annoyed by the bachans here.

  11. Carby at | | Reply

    For sure they were given it to the media. Funny to see Ash flipping someone off. lol. She looks pretty.
    And Abhishek looks like he really means it! haha.

    Big B reminds me of Mr. Bean…in how Mr. Bean found it intriguing in his movie, and so Big B looks cute! ash looks pretty, obviously, and yeah Junior AB does look like he means it!

    overall, i have to say its a very cute family pic, ut thats after ignoring the ‘finger’

  15. Saya at | | Reply

    The family seems genuinely happy.To flip the bird–on purpose or not.

  16. K at | | Reply

    Haha! The Bachchans SO know what they’re doing – their smirks say it all ;) abhi by the way, is looking GOOOOD! what’s his secret?

  17. Nida at | | Reply

    hahahahah this needs to be blown up and framed in their house. What a sight.

    Btw, I noticed it in Neetu’s picture… when you vote in India do you use your fingerprint (specifically your middle one) or something? Pardon the ignoranceee

  18. Ketaki D at | | Reply

    @ Bachans- Back to you :P
    and yeah at shakti kapoor and Raza murad too!

    saira banoo and dilip kumar look the cutest though flashin it… i think they barely know what it means..lol

  19. Amisha at | | Reply

    LOL ! this is funny !Neetu was better showing whole hand!

  20. Clueless at | | Reply

    I think its quite tongue in cheek. Probably the only time the Bachchan (excluding Jaya) family has done something politically incorrect even if its only in jest (ok half jest;)

    On an aside, just out of curiosity – does anyone know why the EC changed the marked finger from the index to the middle?

  21. Bella at | | Reply

    Good one! They all look classy and elegant showing us the finger in jest.

  22. pdaervo at | | Reply

    GAH!!! That’s so cute And REFRESHING comming from them :D <3 (bet it was Abhi’s idea…)

  23. R at | | Reply

    i think they’re ALL looking good for a change.
    lovely pic! :)

  24. Anisha at | | Reply

    The Bacchans have always had a love-hate relationship with politics,media….. I guess thay are giving what they receive… maybe!!

  25. Sonia at | | Reply

    @ Nida- People in India use electronic voting machines. Prior to voting machines voters used to mark their ballots with a rubber stamp on the symbol of their candidate..thank you for your interest!

    On an aside, I love the election coverage on HHC

  26. Indian Girl at | | Reply

    @Nida…Hmmm, I am guessing in Mumbai / Maharashtra they probably ink the middle finger. I have seen some other states using the index finger…

  27. deewani at | | Reply

    many other celebs did the same thing…why single them out…

  28. jiji at | | Reply

    there’s aishwarya wearing the same white top again – the one Jiah wore to the independence event! as for the the vote finger… how sad! Losers!

  29. Anisha at | | Reply

    Does anyone else feel the relief on their faces…… to officially be able to do what they wanted to for ages???!! Poor Jaya… doesn’t know which way to look!!!

  30. k= at | | Reply

    i think its sooo cute that they dress alike! awww

  31. k= at | | Reply

    aww saira banu!! why dont we get to see much of her? shes sooo stunning!

  32. Karishma at | | Reply

    OK the sadist in me is wishing that this happened unintentionally and then they are horrified to see the pictures :P (yeah I realize that the chances of that are l-o-w!)

  33. shikha at | | Reply

    cant really belive bachchans think this is funny …….

  34. Anu at | | Reply

    I think is the first picture i have seen where ALL of them are genuinely smiling.

  35. Belle at | | Reply

    LoL! i found that soooo funny, and so what if they flipped their finger? i mean, this time, they actually can ;) LoL

    btw, i dont get the posts where it’s like, “those that got it right, and those that didn’t”…do u mean, it terms of fashion? :S

  36. Ashi at | | Reply

    LOL, why do they do it on the middle finger anyway?

  37. mishal at | | Reply

    LOll that is pretty funny.. but it’s not a joke expected from the Bachchans

    i like how some of the “right” ppl put up the peace sign lol

  38. PeachBellini at | | Reply

    ummmm…..I’m not offended or anything….but I just think this was kind of unnecessary.

  39. Suzie at | | Reply

    That was obnoxious . I hope they’re feeling very very stupid now. If not , someone needs to tell them they are.

  40. Nick at | | Reply

    Well I hope they remain equally enthusiastic when they are a part of politics as well…. they look good though. Why is Ranbir Kapoor bearded now?

  41. pdaervo at | | Reply

    although I have to add that TECHNICALLY, this doesn’t mean the same thing in every culture ;)

  42. KD at | | Reply

    thats not at all funny! and pretty inappropriate and yes, Jaya’s expressions says it all

  43. viz at | | Reply

    So inappropriate..even if done in jest..and the way they are smirking its definitely intentional. giving the finger to the world..so unlike the bachans. so disappointed

  44. Annnmmmmm at | | Reply

    I love the picture…finally something refershing and in jest – we indians take ourselves too seriously most of the times and yes I am INDIAN too

  45. KK at | | Reply

    I think it’s funny at first (that is the Bachchan’s pictures) .. but seeing someone like Saira Banu and Dilip Kumar flipping the bird is so unnecessary.

  46. sheebz at | | Reply

    lol..its pretty hilarious!
    Anyway knows why Ranbir is sporting a BEARD??!!!

  47. tehreem at | | Reply

    ok u saw the video…..and i have to say…
    they did it on purpose!! lol….weird tho

  48. tehreem at | | Reply

    Rabir is sporting a beard for his upcoming film..for some serious ass role..

  49. FPDP at | | Reply

    hahahahah! I find this hilarious…Jaya B is definitely embarrassed! Abhi seems like he so means it!! LOLLLLL!!

  50. Ratan at | | Reply

    I think its funny…..and the credit must go to the EC who are suddenly making the dot on the middle finger instead of the index finger….LOL glad to see they’ve got a sense of humor!! Come to think of it, who gets the birdie is a question full of suspense, as the nation will only know so once the result of the elections are out!!! I can see the humor there…..

  51. Jo at | | Reply

    why is that in all the pics featuring the B-clan, ash is always standing/sitting/leaning against Big B rather than Beta B ?whose wife is she anyway?

  52. D at | | Reply

    Weird how they didn’t ink us on our middle fingers in UP! We were marked on our index fingers. I’m just wondering if this is a celeb thing or all Mumbai voters were inked like that…

  53. K at | | Reply

    I can’t believe some people are being uptight about this. C’mon guys, it’s supposed to be amusing. Life’s not that serious, geez.

    Ok ,ill choose to come back to our main topic “FASHION”,……….WELL THIS IS ONE FAMILY WICH synchronises the dress color all the time…………….i mean ,u dnt always need to luk lik “WE R ONE FAMILY”………”MATCHING MATCHING”

  55. Kimmy at | | Reply

    This is hilarious to me. It’s nice to see them lighten up…even though I’m pretty sure Abhishek’s got ulterior motives for flipping his bird….lmbo!

  56. Amrita at | | Reply

    Senior AB luks lik he is doing an ad of some dabur product…..luk at his expressions

  57. Lallala at | | Reply

    @suzie, KD, viz and all you others who find this inappropriate, what is wrong with this picture???!!! It’s funny, and if anything, extremely warm – it’s the first picture where they are all genuinely smiling as many have pointed out! LOVE it!

  58. Lallala at | | Reply

    @FPDP – LOL yup Abhi looks like he ‘means it’ HAHA!!!!!

  59. Ashna at | | Reply

    Cmon Guys !
    I totally love this pic!
    and im glad its being taken in the right spirit..reading all the comments above!

    A lot of other actors did it too…including John… Srk..and many more…

    I think its funny

  60. Prem Rogue at | | Reply

    What a sea change in Aishwarya who used to take great pains to be ‘proper’ and come across as the good girl. I guess she feels she can get away with a lot more now that she is a Bachchan.

  61. Sharin at | | Reply

    hahahahahhahahahhaha lOL love this picture. So funny to see Ash and Amitabh doing this ahahah awww so cute.

  62. BooBoo at | | Reply

    @ sheebz and Nick, ranbirs sporting a beard for an upcoming movie called ‘Rajneeti’ where he plays a sardar

    @ Anu, i totally agree, this is the first time the Bachchans are letting their hair down and having some fun, usually they all look like plastic dolls on display =P

  65. dee at | | Reply

    its difficult to comment, as it is a bit odd… however people who know the power of the birde could have been more responsible as it does look a bit offensive !

  66. Pallavi at | | Reply

    Cheeky….I love it….they are doing thier bit as citizens and also “showing” it to the press….

    that top that ash is wearing reminds me of mine! somethng similar was selling on UCB..

  70. Lori at | | Reply

    I think this is hysterical! Some of you here need to lighten up a little. Bad idea of whoever decided to have the ink put on the middle finger.

  71. stuti at | | Reply

    i think this is supremely cute! and funny.

  72. suchi at | | Reply

    pretty cute actually, ash is looking great

  73. HK at | | Reply

    It’s really not a big deal, the inking is done on the middle finger, the press wants to see it, so the celebs show it – some choose to show their whole hand, some choose to show just the required finger. It’s another matter that in some cultures the middle finger is a rude gesture. I’m pretty sure though, that everyone knows what the gesture means, even Dilip Kumar and Saira Banu – these are not ignorant people. It’s just odd to see Amitabh and Aishwarya do it, since it’s contrary to their dignified image.

  74. Enne at | | Reply

    This is seriously funny!

  75. kashish at | | Reply

    brilliant comment Nadia on the first one..and Charan after – hilarious! and Nida..

    and personally, I dont like it..I think its rude, and there’s nothing funny or least bit comical about it to me…and I am not being uptight, thats just what I think. my opinion.

  76. kashish at | | Reply

    oh and whats worse than seeing Yash Chopra and Amitabh Bachchan flipping the bird? Dilip Kumar and Saira Bano…disgusting is what I think it is

  77. Melinda at | | Reply

    hahahaa i love it! its nice to see they have a sense of humor unlike alot of you on here…they’re having fun :P

  78. poli at | | Reply

    @Kashish, I would give Dilip Kumar the benefit of doubt. I think Saira and Dilip are too old and cute to give a bird to anyone. They are like my great Gandpa/Gandma…

  79. amna at | | Reply

    if they were here and they did that then they would be rushed!!! and yes..i dont find it funny!!! this is such a loserish act!! how sad and ppl talk about the BACHCHAN’S as if they are i dont know what!!!

  80. mizmoonlight at | | Reply

    Seriously! These guys need to get that the obvious is not always cool… It’s so much cooler (and dignified) to go beyond what would be expected amd come up with your own version, either Sonam, Aamir and SRK’s full hand salaam, or Sonakshi’s two fingered salute…

  81. mizmoonlight at | | Reply

    Btw, The middle finger was inked this time as parts of the country has already voted and had their index finger inked so the election officials didnt wanted to create some difference between the sections of polling states… My guess is that the next phase of polling states will have their ring fingers inked… Just our luck to get the middle finger :-)

  82. Prat at | | Reply

    It is funny actually. It is time to lighten up.

    The reason why it is middle finger in Mumbai/Maharastra is because there was Muncipal election in some places recently maybe a month or so back, so some people might still have the ink on their index finger. To avoid any confusion and any forgery voting, they decided to ink the index finger.

  84. mj at | | Reply

    i thought i could let it slide…but can’t. the bachchan family for all their “political correctness” and talk of wanting to respect people’s sentiments have failed miserably at just that. you can see the cheeky grins on ash’s and abhishek’s face to know that they think it is very funny flipping the bird. that is all well and fine, but when it pertains to the elections it is plain disrespectful to the whole democratic process of voting. I can understand when the older people hold up their middle finger since they might not know that they are inadvertently flipping the bird, but the younger lot who are fully aware of what holding up the middle finger means do it…it is just a tad bit crass. loooove how kids like sonam kapoor and the sinha kids hold up either their whole hand or the v sign.
    pls tell the bachchans to get over themselves before they get more fan hate coming their way!! seriously seriously offended!!!!

    oh for chrissake – lets lighten up. its just a mark on the finger. its not as though not flipping the bird makes us better citizens and voters. despite the 9/11 attacks, half of mumbai didnt vote – and we should appreciate those who did and can still crack a smile

  86. SM at | | Reply

    Wow..Its so easy to comment on HHC abt the “politically incorrect” gesture of the Bachchans when am sure majority of them wouldn’t have even stepped out of their house to vote! As the mad momma said “lighten up” guys!

    kya family hai!! loved the pic!!! this one is for keeps!

  88. Asfi at | | Reply

    The Bachans look fab together, all in white essemble, But flaunting their mid finger this way is a sure NO – NO….!!! Disgusting…….!!!!They should learn from SRK how to hold up their hand….

    “despite the 9/11 attacks, half of mumbai didnt vote”

    11/26 you meant, the mm? but jes, agree with you.
