#MeToo: Celebrity stylist hints at Amitabh Bachchan’s sexual misconduct

India’s growing #MeToo storm has hit hard as many prominent and notable personalities in the industry including Nana Patekar, Alok Nath, Subhash Ghai, Sajid Khan and Rajat Kapoor have been called out for their callous and careless actions by multiple women.

While Amitabh Bachchan initially refused to share his thoughts on the matter, he finally spoke up earlier this week. However, celebrity hairstylist Sapna Bhavnani on Friday attacked the veteran actor and called him out for his “hypocritic” comments.

Responding to Bachchan’s comments, Bhavnani 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 because nails will not be enough.”

She continued, “Have personally heard so many stories of Bachchan’s sexual misconduct and I I hope those women come out. His hypocrisy is sooooo tired.”

Sapna’s tweets gathered traction and several other Twitter users said that they have heard similar stories. However, no one has yet come forward with their account.

Nonetheless, Bhavnani in a later tweet, clarified her stance and asserted that she not accusing Bachchan of sexually harassing her but is instead encouraging women to come forward with their stories.

“I woke up and social media has gone viral with posts of me accusing Bachchan of sexual misconduct. He hasn’t done anything to me. Clearing this NOW…but I know many that he has… my post is just to encourage those women to come out,” her tweet read.

Earlier this week on the occasion of his 74th birthday [October 11] Amitabh shared his take on the recent Me Too movement that has struck India.

“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,” he has said.

“Discipline and civic, social and moral curriculums, should be adopted at a very early educational level. Women children and the weaker sections of our society are the most vulnerable. They need to be under special protective care,” added Bachchan.

“It has been most heartening to see women representations in most work vocations, on the increase in our country. It would be an irreparable blemish if we are not able to provide them the welcome they deserve and the dignity of the security of their presence,” concluded the Bollywood superstar.
