Looks like singing before India-Pakistan match is not turning out for legendary Amitabh Bachchan. Earlier the social media was flooded with the messages of Amitabh charging Rs 4 crore for singing the National Anthem but, later on, Sourav Ganguly cleared the rumour by breaking that Amitabh did not take a penny to croone the National Anthem.
For most of the cricket lovers, the sound of Amitabh’s voice was enough to raise the feeling of patriotism but looks like some of the people were observing him a bit too much. On Monday, things have reached a bit low for Amitabh when an official police complaint was filed against him in Delhi on four specific counts of wrongdoing.
The complaint listed that Amitabh sang the National Anthem longer than it is supposed to take, the actor sang it in his own rhythm rather than the original one and he has used the word ‘nayak’ instead of ‘dayak’ and ‘Sindhu’ instead of Sindh.
This complaint was filed at Ashok Nagar police station at Delhi. The copy of the complaint was sent to Prime Minister of India and Home Minister of India.
Here is the copy of the complaint filed against Amitabh Bachchan.
Ulhas PR has a difference of views with Amitabh on how the National Anthem of India should be sung. He also had lodged the similar complaint against Amitabh Bachchan at Juhu police station alleging that the legendary actor had incorrectly sung the national anthem during the Pro Kabbadi League.
