Decision on Amitabh as ‘Incredible India’ brand ambassador put on hold

New Delhi: In the wake of recent Panama Papers leak, megastar Amitabh Bachchan’s name as the brand ambassador of ‘Incredible India’ has been put on hold, reports ANI quoting government sources.

The decision was supposed to be taken this month, but will now be taken once the clean chit is given to Bachchan senior. Reports suggest that the delay in decision has been due to his name in the Panama Papers leak.

 The Panama Papers are a leaked set of 11.5 million confidential documents that provide detailed information about more than 214,000 offshore companies listed by the Panamanian corporate service provider Mossack Fonseca, including the identities of shareholders and directors of the companies.

Earlier, Bachchan had issued a statement saying that his name was “misused” and he was not aware of any of the companies mentioned in the report.
