Amitabh Bachchan says Pink inspired the new Rs 2000 note

While we are pretty sure that is not the case, his film was indeed very inspiring to a lot of people. But maybe not enough to determine the colour of the nation’s new currency.

Amitabh Bachchan’s latest film, Pink was a critical and commercial success.

In a shocking announcement to the Indian masses, Prime Minister Narendra Modi declared on Tuesday night that the Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes will be considered invalid after midnight.

He also revealed that the Rs 1000 note will be replaced by a Rs 2000 note which happens to be pink in colour.

Reactions have started pouring in from all sections of the society. Superstar Amitabh Bachchan has also voiced his opinion in a tweet. He wrote that the pink colour of the note was inspired by his latest film, Pink.

While we are pretty sure that is not the case, his film was indeed very inspiring to a lot of people. But maybe not enough to determine the colour of the nation’s new currency.

Other celebrities have also weighed in on the change that promises to be a big step in curbing the menace of black money hoarding.
