The #MeToo campaign that has sparked in India, has targeted many biggies of Bollywood, majority of them being the filmmakers. In the recent turn of events, director Sajid Khan was sacked from Housefull 4 after several women including two actors accused the filmmaker of sexual harassment on the social media. The decision was made by the producers and Akshay Kumar together, when the latter refused to work with any ‘proven offender’. Now, another name has popped up amid the controversies. Celebrity stylist and a former Bigg Boss contestant Sapna Bhavnani attacks meghastar Amitabh Bachhan for his #MeToo stand.
Replying to Amitabh Bachchan’s #MeToo tweet, she wrote, “This has to be the biggest lie ever. 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. @SrBachchan #Metoo #MeTooIndia #comeoutwomen”
