Megastar Amitabh Bachchan is touched by the electronic media’s self-imposed restraint on the coverage of his daughter-in-law Aishwarya Rai’s child birth. “I am also most touched by the decision taken by the electronic media on the coverage issue for Aishwarya’s delivery… humbled!!” Amitabh posted on his Twitter page. According to media reports, the Broadcast Editors Association (BEA) has issued a 10-point advisory to its members on coverage of the birth of the veteran’s grandchild. When the 69-year-old veteran was being asked whether he approached the Information and Broadcasting Ministry (I&B) to ban TV channels from placing reporters and cameras outside the hospital, Bachchan took to the microblogging site to clarify. “I&B and media matter! Firstly, I have no such intention ever, secondly do you really think I&B would listen to me!?? No way baby,” he wrote. Aishwarya is expected to give birth in mid-November.
