Amitabh Bachchan has refrained from speaking to the media regarding the controversies revolving around the film Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi. The superstar recently went for a book launch on February 7, 2019 but no media conference was held post the event. This came as a shock for the media persons as they were expecting to have an interaction with Senior Bachchan. This is not the first time that Amitabh Bachchan has ignored speaking about the controversial issues related to the Bollywood film industry. Previously. when he was being asked to speak on the Tanushree Dutta - Nana Patekar debate revolving around the #MeToo movement, he refused to speak on the topic. For the unversed, Tanushree Dutta had accused Nana Patekar of sexually harassing her on the sets of the 2009 film Horn 'OK' Pleassss. Her accusations pioneered the beginning of the #MeToo movement in India. 

Kangana Ranaut has already taken Bollywood by storm post the release of her film Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi by putting allegations on many people in Bollywood on ganging up against her. Now, it comes as a shock for everyone when a Bollywood biggie like Amitabh Bachchan refuses to speak on the matter. Amitabh Bachchan was last seen in the film Thugs of Hindostan which also starred Aamir Khan, Fatima Sana Sheikh and Katrina Kaif in significant roles. The film which was produced by Aditya Chopra got released in theatres all over India on November 8, 2018. The film received negative reviews from the audience as well as the critics. However, Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan were praised for their brilliant acting performances. Amitabh Bachchan will be next seen in the upcoming fantasy film Brahmastra which co - stars Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Mouni Roy, Akkineni Nagarjuna, Dimple Kapadia and Divyendu Sharma in the lead roles.

Brahmastra is produced by Karan Johar and directed by Ayan Mukerji. It has already been announced that the film is going to be a trilogy.

He’s silence speaks volumes.. Any intelligent person will know that unfortunately Kangana is a Trash and it’s not worth a penny!!

Put things in perspective, Kangana is an entertainer not a brain surgeon!

Do you expect him to go to every home in India to get them to watch her movie cause if he could he would do that when his own movie releases.

This woman has filthiest mouth in the world. She makes her personal issue as women issue.. Why was quite during struggling days? She din have any voice before TWM and Queens release.. Those days she wanted to be in every 1’s good books..Bollywood appreciated her for her performance in queen n TWM. She had problem with that also.. Now celebs r not talking about it, she has problem with this as well.. This woman has no class.. She uses public events to vent out her venom.

Well, its just a film, nothing more or less than that. If he says something nice, Ms. Ranaut will find something offensive in it, if he says something less than flattering, she will probably explode going by her attitude these days. Who goes to a children's event and threatens to expose the entire industry she works in because nobody talked about her film. Are people contractually obligated to talk about these things, no?? Yes AB senior likes to play things safe but for once I agree that it is best to keep quiet.

Amitabh is no doubt a great actor but he is a fearful person. Watch his interview with Arnab Goswami, he comes across as a very weak man.

he shud speak nobody can do any harm to his or his son's career any more !

So he is calling himself confidant and Kangana insecure? Old pervert pretending to be classy but can't help revealing his true character. But then his daughter is Nepotism King's best friend and son benefited from Nepotism by giving 24 flops .
I lost all respect for Big B after panama papers came out. He pretends to be this classy guy but is just as greedy and corrupt like most elites.

If Panama was illegal they would be in jail stop your lies and bitterness

If someone has to say something it will be against Kangana. Then they get attacked by her and stupid media and feminizes. I am woman myself. Hate how Kangana made her issues into women issues and now using Jhansi rani

I don't think asuraksha in Hindi can be used in the same context in which insecurity is used in English.

He is not god

He is not god

Rekha ne bhi Kangana ko boycott kar diya? They both were going ott with her PDA at Anushka s wedding.

isn't he the same person who talks a lot of women empowerment when his film released but made jokes about the Tanushree-nana controversy, so nobody can expect he will comment on his issue in the same way because he knew well kangana will not stay silent and will point out his any fearful person, he refrains.

Her film is not a national issue come on. Why should people fight for it ?

At 76 he is allowed to chill and not listen to nonsense.

but thats the matter...he doesn't chill....he talks and writes a lot of bullshit about matters no-one cares about!
he is a spineless hypocrite!

Why is he not allowed to have peace and is expected to get involved in nonsense dramas like this.

He like everyone else is busy working hard at work and home.

Sound decision.

Thank you Amitabh

She is nothing but a cry baby.First you accused so many people talked shit about the. Then you did a movie and want applaud from same people. You are full of insecurities and a hypocrite. You had so many relationships and every time things didn't work out your way, you went after their life. You say nepotism dude talent is what matters.You do have that but the shitty mouth of yours is the reason you dont have friends.Now you again start accusing alia and amir(more talented that you).

Good decision. She wants to do cheap media trial. Best punishment is to ignore the person completely & treat her like filth

Everyone should do the same. Don't feed the troll.

Who cares what the old pervert has to say!!

Pinkvilla please fix your likes buttons.

So true

He knows crazy, he had the same problem with Praveen Bhabhi, you can talk logic with crazy best to keep silent. Plus he has never claimed to be industry's big wig that his opinion matters

It is well known that parveen babi had schizophrenia which is a major psychiatric disorder and individual mostly has no insight about what he is saying. Stop trivializing mental health disorder by calling people crazy at your convenience.


He is Bollywood ka biggest bigot.

Big Bigot-Big B?? :-)

These people try to pay it safe and then go n twitter and then sign about women empowerment.

Why is everyone expected to publicly comment and take sides on every issue?! The media just wants to create buzz.

lol... she is like a teacher... definitely politics in the near future!

Any person with a sound mind will ignore anything regarding her. No matter whatever the person say good or bad or nothing, this sick woman will twist the real statement and attack the other person.

Now Kangana will attack him too.

He is old. He wants peace not drama

good and only way to stay away from anything to do with Kangana.
