Big B posted about the same on his blog and also shared some images from the episode. “Inspired really by the true story of the fiery young lady that came on with Priyanka Chopra to KBC in our special programme called ‘Housalebaaz’ .. one with determination and strength, displayed in circumstances that have troubled and abused the young female gender in society … that did not feel defeated and ostracised even in the gravest of situations .. that willed herself to fight back the abuse and wretched behaviour from the opposite sex in dehumanising them to atrocities that cannot be tolerated by any human,” posted Bachchan.

He further added, “Usha Vishwakarma from Lucknow, UP fought back abuse and formed a RED BRIGADE of young girls, trained them in the art of self defence and wanted to form an Academy by the earnings at KBC to teach and arm those oppressed and suppressed women in the country to give it back to the invader .. And Priyanka does just that in her film ‘Mary Kom’ the bio made on the life of this fearless athlete from the North East, Manipur, who won the World Championship Women’s Boxing event 5 times and won a medal for the country at the last Olympics.”
