Amitabh Bachchan is quite active on Twitter. Each day he tweets a few lines and thoughts on his profile and his wise words often make headlines. In his latest tweet, the senior Bollywood actor has made his own Hindi word for selfie. It has become such an accepted term today but have you ever wondered what is a selfie called in Hindi? Well, the original term for selfie is "व्यतिगत दूरभाषित यंत्र से हस्त उत्पादित स्व चित्र". Now you know why we prefer saying just selfie! But Senior Bachchan decided to coin his own term with a short form for it "वदय सह उसच."
Selfie may have become a popular word in the last few years with more and more people switching to smartphones. However, the word was included in the Oxford Dictionary in the year 2013. Now Amitabh Bachchan decided to make a shorter word for a selfie by taking all the first letters of the original Hindi word.
