Actor Amitabh Bachchan on Monday retorted to Justice Markandey Katju’s criticism of the actor having “nothing inside his head”. “He (Katju) is right I don’t have anything inside my mind. He is right…My head is ‘khallas'(finished),” Bachchan said when asked about the comment made on him by the former Supreme Court Judge, known for his hard-hitting and often controversial views on a rash of issues.
At a time when the veteran actor is receiving praise for his performance in “Pink”, a social thriller which revolves around the issue of women’s empowerment, Justice Katju had a different take on his on-screen talent. “We were in same school. He was my senior. There is no rivalry,” said the 73-year-old actor.
On September 17, Katju posted, “Amitabh Bachchan is a man with nothing in his head, and since most mediapersons praise him, I doubt there is anything in their heads too”. His post left many asking him why he said what he said.
In another post, he decided to explain the detailed meaning of his post wherein he called his movies drugs which are essentially made to pacify the public and other than that, the actor does nothing for the society. Though he acknowledged that Bachchan is a good actor.
