Amitabh Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai's names have been revealed in the Panama Paper Leak Reports and Aishwarya's team had issued a statement saying the reports are "totally false and untrue".
Now Amitabh Bachchan, has sent out an official statement regaring the Panama Leaks and says his name is "been misused".
"I do not know any of the companies referred to by Indian Express - Sea Bulk Shipping Company Ltd, Lady Shipping Ltd, Treasure Shipping Ltd, and Tramp Shipping Ltd. I have never been a director of any of the above stated companies. It is possible that my name has been misused. I have paid all my taxes including on monies spent by me overseas. Monies that I have remitted overseas have been in compliance with law, including remittances through LRS, after paying Indian taxes. In any event the news report in Indian Express does not even suggest any illegality on my part."
It is reported that around 500 Indians are reported in the Panama leaks, and that includes several film stars, politicians, industrialists and many other well known personalities.
German based daily 'Sueddeutsche Zeitung' was the first to break out the news on the Panama Paper Leaks and shared with the world media by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ). The Panama Leak is a 1.2 TB document and has shocked the world and is also named as "the world's biggest leak".
The Indian Government had as ordered an investigation into the matter about the names of Indian nationalities mentioned in the leaks. Only after the investigation is completed can we confirm if Amitabh Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai is really under guilt or not.
