Amitabh Bachchan finally broke his silence about the #MeToo movement in an interview yesterday, calling for issues around sexual harassment to be addressed within organisations. However, on social media, Bachchan’s behaviour is also under scrutiny.
A journalist responded to Bachchan’s comments, calling out his behaviour. His comments have been added to by others who say that Bachchan’s conduct has been a known thing for some time.

That's wierd. Because Bacchan Sr. is another name that often cropped up during my talk with friends in TV & films. But his reach is said to be gargantuan & apparently he can be really vicious, destroying careers. Too big for #MeeTooIndia #MeTooIndia ??? https://t.co/0UALpWD1cc

This emerges in the 76-year-old actor’s birthday week. One wonders when he will respond to these accusations.
