Amitabh Bachchan spent Rs 30 lakh for T20 match appearanceDespite what haters will have you believe, Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan did not take any appearance fee for singing the national anthem in the India-Pakistan World Twenty 20 clash, confirmed Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) president Sourav Ganguly. On the contrary, Big B spent Rs 30 lakh from his pocket for the appearance.
“Mr Bachchan is one and only, a special person. I am eternally grateful to him. Can you imagine someone paying Rs 30 lakhs of his own pocket to perform? He booked his own flight, bought his own tickets and even paid the hotel bills. I literally begged him to take some money but he said that I am doing it for love and there is no question of money being involved,” CAB president Sourav Ganguly was quoted as saying in Anandbazar Patrika.
Earlier a top CAB official cleared the air on Sunday. “No, Mr. Amitabh Bachchan did not take any money from us,” the official said. The 73-year-old actor reportedly also booked his flight tickets and paid his hotel bills himself.
