A report on secial media went viral which suggested that the Bollywood Super Star had charged 4 crores as his appearance fee.
The ‘rumoured act’ forced fans to question his patriotism.
“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.
A top CAB official cleared the air on Sunday.
“No, Mr. Amitabh Bachchan did not take any money from us,” the official told IANS.
