Recently, an old picture of Amitabh Bachchan shaking hands with a person went viral on social media. A Twitter user claimed that the person seen with Amitabh in the picture was underworld don, Dawood Ibrahim.
However, Abhishek Bachchan responded to the Twitter user and schooled him for misleading people by naming the wrong person with his father.
Clarifying the same, he wrote in Hindi, “Brother, this photo is from my father and former Maharashtra Chief Minister Mr Ashok Shankarrao Chavan.”
Soon after Abhishek’s reply, the user deleted the said tweet.
The Bachchan family has been in the news ever since Jaya Bachchan made her speech in Parliament. She had spoken out in support of the film industry and alleged that a continuous attempt to defame the film industry is being made.
Netizens slammed the veteran actress along with the rest of her family, for remaining silent on major issues and interpreted her speech as an attempt to protect drug addicts in the film industry.
Meanwhile, security has been increased outside their bungalows in Mumbai as a precautionary measure.
“Amitabh Bachchan already has X category security cover. After the speech (in Parliament by Jaya Bachchan), we stepped up peripheral security and increased patrolling outside their bungalows in Juhu,” the official said.
