Amitabh Bachchan is in big trouble. The actor has been accused of not singing National Anthem in the proper manner at the India-Pakistan match held in Eden Gardens on Saturday.
A complaint has been filed against the actor at Ashok Nagar Police station in New Delhi for singing the Anthem incorrectly.
The complaint reads that Big B mispronounced words and duration ran for 1 minute and 22 seconds against the prescribed 52 seconds.
Before this controversy, the actor was accused for charging money to sing the National Anthem. It was rumoured on social media that he had charged 4 crores as his appearance fee.
Later Cricket Association of Bengal president Sourav Ganguly was quoted saying that Big B paid Rs 30 lakhs out of his pocket towards stay and travel cost to Kolkata.
"Mr Bachchan is one and only, a special person. I am eternally grateful to him. Can you imagine someone paying Rs 30 lakhs of his own pocket to perform? He booked his own flight, bought his own tickets and even paid the hotel bills. I literally begged him to take some money but he said that I am doing it for love and there is no question of money being involved," he was quoted as saying.
On Sunday, a top CAB official told IANS, "No, Mr. Amitabh Bachchan did not take any money from us."
