Why Bollywood producers are still thinking bigger
The Income Tax (IT) department Friday denied that it had served any notice to Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan asking him to explain the purchase of Ray Ban glasses worth Rs.270,000 as reported in a section of the media.
"We clarify that the Income Tax department, Mumbai has not issued any notice to Amitabh Bachchan with reference to media reports that the actor had purchased sun glasses in New York valued at Rs.270,000," H. Tulsyan, Chief Commissioner Income Tax Mumbai, told IANS.
"There were several misleading reports in certain sections of the media. The media has been reporting that Income Tax department Mumbai has issued a notice asking the actor to explain the purchase of sun glasses in New York. We have not issued any such notice to Amitabh Bachchan," he added.
Amitabh used the branded glasses in his new film "Zamanat" due to hit theatres next week.
