The Bachchans have been one of the most influential Bollywood families that people reckon. Amitabh Bachchan is believed to be in a different league of actors altogether, his achievements being the highest point of recognition. To be a star in a country which worships Bollywood, the Bachchans have sure been under deliberate pressure for sustenance and maintenance of their name worldwide. Their involvement in mere anything becomes a news worthy issue, and one such issue is that of Panama Papers leak.
It was only recently that Indian Express broke the news of Amitabh and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan being prominent Indian names in the Panama Papers leak. Records of international law firm Mossack Fonseca revealed that Amitabh before launching his production company - Amitabh Bachchan Corporation Limited (ABCL), was the managing director of four companies which were registered in countries where the tax levied was low. Similarly, Aishwarya along with her father Krishnaraj Rai, mother Vrinda Rai, and brother Aditya Rai was registered as the director of a firm Amic Partners Limited, which later mentioned them as shareholders before the company dissolved in 2008.
Right after the news broke out of Amitabh’s name in the Panama Paper leak, the media started contacting him for his take on the subject. Amitabh at first restrained himself from answering any questions related to Panama Papers, but later issued an official statement denying his involvement. He released a statement saying that, “I do not know any of the companies referred to by Indian Express. I have never been a director of any of the stated companies. It is possible that my name has been misused.”
When asked Abhishek about Amitabh and Aishwarya’s names being involved in the Panama Paper leak, he remained calm and said, “It is up to the authorities to decide the veracity of that report. So I think the right thing to do is to wait for that to happen. There is complete cooperation from the family to cooperate with the powers that be.” Further elaborating on the same he said that, “a journalist’s job is to report and so you do that, and now it is left on the higher authorities to decide.”
Confident that his family name has been misused in the issue, Abhishek also believes that the recent leak has not sabotaged the image of his father or his wife. After being questioned again about his take on the Panama Papers he continued, “That’s your side of the story. Let the government do what it they have to do. Let them decide and when the facts come out, I think you might not be asking that question.”
While the proceedings are yet to happen and the investigation still pending, one cannot be sure of their involvement in the Panama Papers. Amidst the time of crisis the family is holding close and are standing for each other. Well, the outcome of the same will only been known post the investigation, and until then there is more to follow on the proceedings of the case. Whether Amitabh and Aishwarya’s name has been misused or are they really involved, to this we will only have an answer to when the investigations ends and the truth is out for the people to know.
