Brand ambassador of Beti Bachao Andolan and lead actor of Pink film – Amitabh Bachchan, neatly dodged the question about Tanushree Dutta’s sexual harassment allegations against Nana Patekar.
A news reporter asked for his comment at Thugs of Hindostan trailer launch event and this is how he tried to dodge it, “Neither is my name Tanushree, nor is it Nana Patekar. How do I answer this question?”

While Aamir Khan offered a rather diplomatic answer to the same question, “Without knowing the veracity of something, it’s not right for me to comment on it. But whenever something like this does happen, it’s a sad thing. Whether this has happened, that is for people to investigate.” Meanwhile, Farhan Akhtar and Priyanka Chopra have used their voice to show support for Tanushre Dutta on social media.
However, for Amitabh, it’s not the first time he has dodged a controversial question and it has left everyone angry and disappointed.
Has Amitabh Bachchan stood up for anything in his life? He is always on the right side of power. A great actor but possibly the most spineless, hypocrite in recent times! https://t.co/0qk1TYE5Gu

I don’t think he has any business commenting on this. It’s not like Pink 2 is about to release. https://t.co/U1FsKQNmwo

Hey @SrBachchan, dekho @FarOutAkhtar is not Tanushree Dutta or Nana Patekar but he has used his voice. You please write a letter to your grand daughters when you have another film to release. Until then, try growing a spine! https://t.co/rxYcIS8bhq

A bunch of men on my notification jumping in with “why should Amitabh comment on criminal case? Why should he take woman’s side without proof that she isn’t lying?”
This is fucking why we don’t report.

My name is Amitabh Bachchan,I know my word can carry.If I want I can start a real dialogue by answering this question but I rather write 'inspirational' notes on misogyny post PINK ..so my silence now is braided with irony ..lest we upset this beautiful order that I preside over! https://t.co/mxzJ01549E

It’s a friendly reminder that these celebrities are just heroes on the screen. They don’t give a flying fork what happens in real life.
