A year after Bollywood film Pink was released, Amitabh Bachchan tweeted a photograph of himself with other members of the film crew, calling it 'the team of 'Pink'...all in one frame'.

Ironically, though Pink was hailed as a rare feminist film that spoke about consent and slut shaming, Big B's photograph did not have a single woman in the frame. Yes, that's right. It was a bro fest that Amitabh Bachchan chose to tweet.
