Iconic Bollywood celebrity, Amitabh Bachchan has exposed media reports that he was paid more than 6 crores for the promo video of DD Kisan. He provided a clarification through an official statement.
Here is the statement:
“I wish to state that I have not entered into any contract with Door Darshan, on the endorsement of their Channel DD Kisan, and neither have I received any money from them.
I worked with the advertising agency Lowe Lintas on the campaign for DD Kisan, and have not entered into any contract with them either, nor have I received any money from Lintas, as being stated.
My ‘deliverables’ on this campaign have been executed by me many days ago. I work pro bono on various issues and DD Kisan Channel is one of them. If there is any evidence or proof to the contrary, please forward them to me for verification.”
Perhaps, a clarification from Big B was necessary in this case.
