With the #MeToo campaign upping its pace in India, it seems a number of Bollywood icons are under the scanner.
While Amitabh Bachchan has remained quiet in the whole Nana Patekar and Tanushree Dutta scandal, he opened up on Thursday in an interview. He said, “No woman should ever be subjected to any kind of misbehaviour, or disorderly conduct, especially at her work place. Such acts should immediately be brought to the notice of concerned authorities, and corrective measures be taken, either through filing complaints or a recourse to law.”
In a surprsing turn of events, celebrity hairstylist and former ‘Bigg Boss’ contestant, Sapna Bhavnani hit back at the legendary actor branding his statement “the biggest lie ever”. She then took to Twitter, “Sir the film Pink has released and gone and your image of being an activist will soon too. Your truth will come out very soon. Hope you are biting your hands cuz nails will not be enough. (sic)”
In another tweet, Bhavnani said, “Have personally heard so many stories of Bachchan’s sexual misconduct and I hope those women come out. His hypocrisy is sooooo tired. (sic)”
