Mr. Amitabh Bachchan has come out with an official statement to address the stories concerning his reported endorsement of Doodarshan’s DD Kisan channel. The actor has done some work for the channel, which focuses on Indian agricultural news, but refutes that he has received any payment.
We have that full statement:
“TO WHOMSOEVER IT MAY CONCERN
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.
