Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan said on Monday that he has no rivalry with former Supreme Court judge Markandey Katju, who recently commented that the actor is a man with “nothing in his head”.

On September 17, Katju, in a Twitter post, commented: “Amitabh Bachchan is a man with nothing in his head, and since most mediapersons praise him, I doubt there is anything in their heads.”

Asked about it, Amitabh told the media here: “Justice Katju is right. I really don’t have anything inside my head. We can be a part of what is going on and work towards it. But he is right. My head is khallas (finished).”

The 73-year-old said Justice Katju and he went to the same school in Allahabad.

Was there any old rivalry?

“There is no rivalry between us. I will have to fold my hands and stand before him. He is a judge,” said Big B, who was here to talk about the response to his latest release “Pink”.

When Justice Katju was asked to elucidate his comment on Amitabh, he posted: “Amitabh Bachchan’s films, like those of Dev Anand, Shammi Kapoor, Rajesh Khanna, etc are like drugs, they take the people to a world of make believe, and they are therefore very useful to our rulers since they keep people pacified.”

“Apart from being a good actor, what is there in Amitabh Bachchan? Has he any scientific ideas for solving the country’s massive problems? There are none. From time to time he appears on some media channels giving sermons and homilies, and from time to time he is shown to be doing good deeds, but who can not do this with tons of money.”
