Pink starring Amitabh Bachchan, Taapsee Pannu, Kirti Kulhari, Angad Bedi
gave society a new tag line – No means No. It stirred up a new debate on women
But something went wrong when Big B posted a picture on Twitter with the film’s one year anniversary. The picture had no women in it. Not even the actresses - Taapsee Pannu, Kirti Kulhari, Andrea Tariang who were an integral part of the movie.
He captioned the picture as, “T 2549 - The team of 'PINK' .. all in one frame .. and .. ALL, independent, individual .. NATIONAL AWARD WINNERS !!

As soon as he put
up the post, users immediately started questioning and commenting the picture?
The picture gives out the wrong message and is ironic because it doesn’t really
justify the social message that the movie gave. A few fans on Twitter called
Big B hypocrite.

In an earlier interview, Big B said, "Pink stands for women empowerment and hence it is titled the same. Women aren't respected in the society and for the same they should stand up and fight back. I believe 60% of out country comprises of women."
The film also won the National Award in the Best Film on social issues category.
