The Chief Economist of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), Gita Gopinath on Friday shared a video from the show Kaun Banega Crorepati in which Amitabh Bachchan praises her during a round with a contestant on the popular quiz show.

"The economist seen in this image has been the chief economist of which organisation since 2019," asks Amitabh Bachchan as Gita Gopinath's picture is shown on the screen.


"Her face is so beautiful that no one can relate her to economy," Mr Bachchan said.

Sharing the clip on her official social media handle, Ms Gopinath tweeted that the video was special to her because she is a huge fan of Mr Bachchan, who she dubbed as the "Greatest of All Time".

 

 

In response, Mr Bachchan replied saying that every word about the economist were said in "utmost earnestness".

Nevertheless several Twitter users pointed to what they alleged were sexist remarks from the Bollywood actor.

Ms Gita Gopinath joined the IMF as the chief economist in 2019, becoming the first woman to hold the top post. She is also the second Indian after former RBI governor Raghuram Rajan to occupy the post.
