Sir the woman, about whom this is all about, missing #respect for them too— Amit Chauhan (@Amipal2006) September 16, 2017
Not the entire team of PINK. The three female protagonists- they would make it a TEAM.— Murukesh Krishnan (@MURUKESHK) September 16, 2017
Where are the Girls ? Who made the characters memorable, they are not in the Team?— pramod k nair (@pramodknair1) September 16, 2017
Pink, directed by Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury, released in theatres last year and received universal critical acclaim. The film also starred Kriti Kulhari, Andrea Tariang and Angad Bedi in lead roles.
Pink won the National Film Award for Best Film on Other Social Issues. In the film, Mr Bachchan featured as a lawyer, who defended three girls, played by Taapsee, Kriti Kulhari and Andrea Tariang.
Ahead of Pink's release, Amitabh Bachchan wrote an open letter to his granddaughters Navya Naveli Nanda and Aaradhya Bachchan in which he asked them to live their lives on their own terms. "Don't listen to those who tell you "how to dress, how to behave, who you can meet and where you can go," wrote the actor.
