Commenting on IMF Chief Geeta Gopinath to the superstar Amitabh Bachchan on KBC has proved costly. He is getting a lot of criticism on social media for the comments made during the show. Actually, during an episode of KBC showing a picture of IMF Chief Geeta Gopinath, a question related to her was asked. After this, Amitabh Bachchan made a controversial comment about the beauty of IMF Chief.
Amitabh Bachchan says that ‘such a beautiful face cannot be associated with his economy’. Geeta Gopinath did not take pleasure from hearing these words about herself from the mouth of Shanshah on the show and expressed her happiness through Twitter.

IMF Chief Geeta Gopinath may have given happiness to these words of Bachchan Sahab. But some people found his comment sexist, after which everyone is giving their respective feedback on Twitter.

I didn’t like the comment about linking beauty with brains. Stupid of Mr. Bachchan to suggest that beautiful women can’t be economists.

Don't you think he was being sexist here? Etna khubsurat face or economy!!! What does that mean?

Most sexist remark though. Indicative of the limited knowledge and regressive outlook of this so called great man. Beautiful people can’t be economists and vice versa ? And why even comment on the face ? It’s a quiz.

Sometimes we say such a thing in talk, about which we later understand that. The same happened with Bachchan sir. While praising Geeta Gopinath, he may have forgotten that this is the era of social media. Here a slight mistake causes earthquake.
