The troubles of the Bachchan family have increased in the world-famous Panama Papers case. Today Aishwarya Rai reached Delhi’s Loknayak Bhawan to appear before ED. In 2016, 11.5 crore tax documents of a Panama-based law firm were leaked in the UK. Talking about India, the names of about 500 people were revealed. It also includes the name of the Bachchan family.
According to a report, Amitabh Bachchan was made a director of 4 companies. Of these, three were in the Bahamas, while one was in the Virgin Islands. These were created in 1993. The capital of these companies was between 5 thousand to 50 thousand dollars, but these companies were doing business of those ships, which were worth crores. This is not the first case when the Bachchan family has come into controversy. Even before this, he has been involved in many controversies.
Amitabh’s brother Ajitabh’s name also came up in Bofors scam.
Name implicated in Bofors scam
In 1987, the Bofors scam came to the fore, after which Amitabh Bachchan’s image began to deteriorate. Amitabh Bachchan retired from politics after being named in Bofors. Amitabh Bachchan got clean chit in Bofors case after 25 years. It was told that Amitabh Bachchan’s name was deliberately inserted in the Bofors scam.
After getting a clean chit in Bofors, Big B expressed his pain on the blog and wrote, ‘When my family and I were accused in the Bofors scam, every aspect of our life was presented in dark colors … After 25 years the prosecutors brought the truth to the fore. It’s easy to blame in this age of technology. People don’t want to check facts. Whereas such controversies spread rapidly. All the allegations are made in this. Such storms arise that they cease to be visible. Such allegations are made that the base of your decency is over. Sweden’s whistle blower gave me a clean chit in 2012.
Controversy with Amar Singh
Amitabh Bachchan’s family once had a very close relationship with Amar Singh, but later their relationship turned sour. In 2012, after a heated argument with Jaya Bachchan at Anil Ambani’s party, there was a distance between Amar Singh and the Bachchan family.
Amar had said- ‘Amitabh had supported Jaya in that quarrel. Since then the distance between us had increased. He had alleged- ‘Amitabh is an actor who is involved in many criminal cases. His name has also figured in the Panama Papers controversy. However, in the same year, he issued a video and apologized to him.
He had said – Today is the death anniversary of my father. That’s why Amitabh Bachchan sent the message. I am at such a point in my life, when I am struggling with life and death. I apologize for the unnecessary statements towards Amit ji and his family. May God protect them all. Amar Singh passed away after the release of this video.
Shatrughan Sinha feud
Bollywood has once been a witness to the friendship of Amitabh and Shatru. In the 70s, there was a rift in this friendship. How did friendship turn into enmity? Shotgun has answered this question in his biography. Shotgun admits that his stature in Bollywood in the 70s was bigger than Amitabh Bachchan. Due to this there was a rift in the friendship.
Shatrughan wrote in his biography, “I was getting the fame Amitabh Bachchan wanted in films. This used to upset Amitabh. Due to this, I left many films and returned to the signing amount.” Then people used to say that Amitabh and my on-screen pair are super hit, but they did not want to work with me. They used to think that Shatrughan Sinha was overwhelming me in Naseeb, Kala Patthar, Shaan and Dostana, but it never made any difference to me. I was never offered a chair next to Amitabh on the sets of Kala Patthar. Amitabh never offered me to come in his car while going from location to hotel after shooting. I used to wonder why this is happening. But I never complained about anything.
Jaya was also in controversies
BJP MP Ravi Kishan said on September 14, 2020 that drugs are being smuggled from Pakistan and China. This is a conspiracy to ruin the young generation of the country. He said that it has penetrated into our film industry and NCB is probing it. I demand that strict action should be taken in this matter.
The very next day in Parliament, SP MP Jaya Bachchan said – You cannot tarnish the image of the entire industry because of a few people. I am ashamed that yesterday one of our members in the Lok Sabha, who is from the film industry, spoke against it. it’s embarrassing. You cannot make a hole in the plate you eat. There was a lot of controversy over his statement.
