Amitabh Bachchan denies being approached for ‘Atulya Bharat’

Till about a few days back, the media was abuzz with the rumors that Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan had been approached by the government to become the face of ‘Atulya Bharat‘ for its ‘Incredible India’ campaign. Amitabh Bachchan, who was in the news recently because of the much talked about ‘Panama Papers’, has now officially issued a statement wherein he has denied being approached to be the face of the said campaign. Besides denying the approach, he also added that his name has been misused in the Panama papers disclosure.

Below is the statement from Amitabh Bachchan clearing his stand on the whole issue:

“There have been queries from the media regarding my being Brand Ambassador for ‘Atulya Bharat’. I wish to state that I have not been formally approached for this position. The speculation of the media regarding its discontinuance is, therefore, not relevant as far as I am concerned.

On the Panama disclosures, I wish to state that queries continue to be sent to me by the media. I would humbly request them to kindly direct these to the GOI where I, as a law abiding citizen have already sent, and shall continue to send, my responses. I stand by my earlier statement on the ‘misuse of my name’ in the matter and in any event the press reports do not disclose any illegal act committed by me.”
