Needless to say, after the manner in which several people across the country broke the Janata Curfew announced by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, and gathered in groups to clap, ring bells and blow the shankh to ward off the virus, this piece of misinformation coming from India’s biggest superstar was indeed shocking.

Aamir Bashir wrote that Bachchan would have lost ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’ despite the lifelines.

Varun Grover, on the other hand, tweeted, “Shameful superstitions propaganda coming from a person with such huge reach. And we have learned to let go of besharmi of many of our celebs but this is DANGEROUS too. Indian lives are at stake here and you need to be more responsible”.
