Amitabh Bachchan: I have not been formally approached for Atulya Bharat
A statement issued by the legal advisor to Amitabh Bachchan reacting to a recent controversy regarding his brand ambassadorship for Atulya Bharat and the Panama disclosures
"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," says the statement.
It adds, "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."
