Bollywood actor Amitabh Bachchan and his daughter in law Aishwarya Rai Bachchan have been accused in connection with the Panama Papers Leaks.
A leading newspaper has recently unearthed a story that involves a staggering leak of 11.5 million tax documents resulting in the exposure of the secret offshore dealings of world renowned sports persons, world leaders, businessmen like DLF owner KP Singh, Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, and Bollywood celebrities including Amitabh Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai. The investigations have revealed more than 11 million documents from the secret files of ‘Mossack Fonseca’.
Amitabh Bachchan (in the year 1993), had been appointed as the ‘Director’ in at least four offshore shipping companies, of which one was in the BVI and the rest three were in the Bahamas. Additionally, Aishwarya Rai and her family members were registered as directors of ‘Amic Partners Limited’ in the year 2005. Before the company’s dissolution in the year 2008, Aishwarya Rai’s status was changed to ‘share holder’.
