Amitabh Bachchan’s evasive reply when asked about Tanushree Dutta's charge of misbehaviour against veteran actor Nana Patekar created an uproar on social media.

Asked for his opinion on the issue during the trailer launch of his forthcoming film Thugs Of Hindostan last week, the one-time superstar refused to comment. “Neither is my name Tanushree Dutta nor is it Nana Patekar,” he said.

Dutta was hurt by Bachchan’s response. Speaking to the Hindustan Times newspaper, she criticized the veteran, saying, “I am hurt as these are people who do movies on social causes. They play roles in films and the audience applauds. But when it comes to standing up and doing something about what is happening in front of you, there are these evasive statements that don’t make sense.” 

Meanwhile, Patekar has vowed to address a press conference and answer each and every question looking directly into the camera. Reacting to this, Dutta said, “Why should I have any views on this statement. That’s what pathological liars do. They can look you in the eye or wherever you want them to and say what they want. I am tired of people who are still saying Tanushree is ‘claiming’. I don’t have anything to say.” 

Patekar is currently shooting in Jaisalmer for Housefull 4.
