Leaked Email: Hillary Clinton asked about Amitabh Bachchan


Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton once asked about megastar Amitabh Bachchan in her email sent to her close aide . A leaked email of Hillary Clinton shows that she had once asked about Indian megastar Amitabh Bachchan to her close aide Huma Abedin.

Jose A DelReal, a national political reporter with The Washington Post, posted a picture on his Twitter page of the leaked email of Clinton in which the former US secretary of state had asked her Pakistani-origin aide Huma Abedin about Mr. Bachchan.

He captioned the email as: Yet another afternoon sifting through Clinton emails, like old times. This is the most interesting one I've found yet:

The July 2011 email had been sent by Clinton to Abedin in which she asked "What's the name of the famous older Indian actor we met a few years ago?"..

To the question, Abedin replied "Amitabh bachan (sic)."

In what context Clinton enquired about the 74-year-old actor is not known.

Abedin got in political trouble after FBI Director James Comey sent a letter to Congress about a changed inquiry relating to her emails.

FBI begins re-examining some 650,000 emails found on a laptop which belongs to Abedin’’s estranged husband, former Congressman Anthony Weiner, that may be linked to the enquiry into Clinton's use of a confidential email server while she served as the secretary of state during President Barack Obama's first term.
