Amitabh Bachchan surprised at name appearing in Panama Papers leak.

New Delhi: Indian Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan has clarified that he is not involved in any money laundering case, and see no reason why his name has been linked to Panama Papers leak

He has said that a report carried in the DNA dated April 8, 2016, is a matter that has been under investigation for the past 6-7 years by the Income Tax and Enforcement Departments.

"I have diligently responded to all the queries and notices sent by them. I am, a law-abiding citizen of the country", said Bachchan.

On the Panama Papers reportage in The Indian Express, he said that he is not a director on the Board of the four Companies as mentioned in an earlier report.

"I am happy that the government of India has instituted a thorough investigation on this issue, for, I myself am keen to know how my name appears in connection with those four companies", said the Bollywood star.

On the matter of brand ambassadorship, he said that he has been reading comments about his removal from the Brand Ambassadorship of the Maharashtra Tiger Preservation campaign. This is the prerogative of the Government of Maharashtra, which he shall humbly respect.

Nonetheless, whatever the decision, he shall continue to work towards the social causes that he is associated with - Tiger Preservation, Polio, Swatch Bharat, TB, Hepatitis B, Diabetes, Family Planning - in my individual personal capacity, added Bachchan.
