Sanjay Dutt’s wife, Maanyata Dutt has come out to deny any wrongdoing in the Paradise Papers controversy, which came out this week.
In a statement, her spokesperson said, “As per the requirements of provisions of Income Tax Act, 1961, all the properties, company or body corporate or shares in any company are declared in the balance sheet.”
Before the leak on Sunday, Amitabh Bachchan also took to his blog to pen his thoughts on being named in the Bofors scandal and the earlier Panama Papers. He said, “We were asked for reactions, for responses, for justification or not, for replies to their investigative queries… Two instant replies were given out by us… Of denial and misuse of name. They were printed… but the questions continued.
“The fullest cooperation has been extended at all hours as dutiful citizens.. And even after, if there is any more query that needs to be addressed, we shall comply.”
