Maharashtra NCP spokesperson Nawab Malik says Big B's intentions aren't pure and he would agree to campaign for Narendra Modi for money.

Amitabh Bachchan may have threatened legal action over a fake video on YouTube that suggested he was backing Narendra Modi as the next Prime Minister, but that hasn't stopped a senior NCP leader from taking potshots at the Bollywood veteran.

"Had Bachchan's intentions been pure, he would have complained to the cyber cell and not with the copyright authorities," state NCP spokesperson Nawab Malik told reporters.

Malik, however, said this was his personal opinion.

"His anguish stems not due to ideological reasons but out of pecuniary motive...Big B means big money," Malik alleged. "Tomorrow, if he were to get money, he will campaign for Modi," the NCP leader said.

Malik's comments came on a day when a music composer from Rajkot admitted to having uploaded the fake video on the video-sharing website and apologised.
