Protest against Amitabh Bachchan; Sexually explicit remark against Geeta Gopinath

Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan has been criticized on social media for making ‘sexually explicit’ remarks against IMF chief Geeta Gopinath. Bachchan was mentioned at the Con Banega Crorepati event. The video of the song was shared on social media.

‘I do not think this will ever happen. Geeta Gopinath shared the video with the caption ‘As a big fan of Big B, as the greatest of all time, this is special to me’.
The controversy was sparked by a question raised by a contestant regarding Geeta. The question was, “The economist in this picture is the chief advisor to any organization from 2019 onwards.” “Such a beautiful face has nothing to do with the system,” Bachchan added. The reference has drawn criticism on social media.

Critics have questioned whether beautiful women can become economists. Meanwhile, Bachchan also responded to Geeta’s tweet. Bachchan’s reply was that Nandi Geeta Gopinath ji had uttered all the words on the show with utmost sincerity.
