Amitabh Bachchan statement on Panama Papers

Wednesday, April 6, 2016

Megastar Amitabh Bachchan has issued a statement a day after his name figures in the list of celebrities in Panama Papers.

The test of his statement goes : "I do not know any of the companies referred to by Indian Express - Sea Bulk Shipping Company Ltd, Lady Shipping Ltd, Treasure Shipping Ltd, and Tramp Shipping Ltd. I have never been a director of any of the above stated companies. It is possible that my name has been misused. I have paid all my taxes including on monies spent by me overseas. Monies that I have remitted overseas have been in compliance with law, including remittances through LRS, after paying Indian taxes. In any event the news report in Indian Express does not even suggest any illegality on my part."
