Amitabh Bachchan took a dig at Shoba De who had mocked Indian Olympians last week in her tweet “Rio jao. Selfies lo. Khaali haat wapas aao. (Go to Rio, take selfies and come back with empty hands) What a waste of money and opportunity”.
The entire sports fraternity had condemned her remarks and stood in support of the athletes. She also received backlash from public for insulting hard working athletes.
After the astonishing win of Sakshi Malik and PV Sindhu, Amitabh Bachchan has slammed Shoba De without taking her name in his tweet “Aap “khaali haath” nahin, medal leke wapas aa rahin hain aur hum aapke saath ‘selfie’ nikalne chahate hain, (You will be coming back with a medal and not ’empty handed’. And I would like to click a selfie with you)”.
