Bollywood Megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who was sent a notice by Supreme Court, said that he will follow Supreme Court’s instructions.
Supreme Court sent the actor a legal notice to a actor after a petition was filed by the Income Tax department, which claimed that the megastar owes to it Rs 1.66 crore as taxes on his income he earned through quiz show ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’ during 2001-2002.
“There are two things in life that are inevitable, death and Income Tax. I will follow the court's order," he told reporters at the unveiling of the first promo of ‘Jolly LLB’ on Tuesday.
“I have not really faced an issue with it. I remember when my name cropped up during Bofors case in London, the only weapon I had was speaking the truth. We were on the side of truth and we won," added Amitabh Bachchan, who was given a clean chit in the Bofors case from Swedish whistleblower Sten Lindstrom, who led the Bofors probe in his country.
Coincidentally, the movie also deals with Indian judiciary system.
“I am truly impressed with the promo of the film and I really liked it a lot. I hope the film achieves great success,” he said.
The movie stars Arshad Warsi, Amrita Rao and Boman Irani.
Previously Amitabh Bachchan has approached Shah Rukh Khan with Arshad Warsi’s role but SRK turned the movie down.
“I had met Shah Rukh for the project. He liked the story but things did not materialize. So, then I approached Arshad,” said movie’s director Subhash Kapoor.
