For those uninitiated, Ramu had tweeted on March 8, the international women’s day, “I wish all the women in the world give men as much happiness as Sunny Leone.” This led to an outrage from men and women.

Ramu and Amitabh have been working together for quite a few years. So media which was present at the event asked Amitabh about his opinion on the tweet, but he just ignored the question and moved on the take another question.

It is not for the first time that the Ramu invited social media ire with his tweets. Some of his  tweets talked about Bachchan too. After watching the trailer of Bachchan’s Bbhuddah, he had posted, “ “Just saw some scenes of Bbhuddah and I am fu***g super angry with the f****g angry man for not doing more films like this all these f****g years”(sic)

After receiving a backlash from Amitabh’s fans for his choice of words, Ramu had justified his tweet by saying, “For the people who took offence to my language I am rephrasing my compliment...Bbhuddah is a very nice film and Amitji has acted very well”

By the way Ramu is not the only topic that Bachchan senior was avoiding. When asked if it is true that Aishwarya’s dad is not keeping well and has been admitted to Leelavati hospital, he chose not to respond to that question too.
