Big B on Bofors : Happy that truth has emerged after 25 years

India's megastar Amitabh Bachchan is clean from the Bofors dirt.

Happy and relieved the iconic megastar issued a statement to the media that he is feeling good but the 25 years has been painful

Speaking to reporters here, Bachchan welcomed the revelations made by the Swedish investigators in the Bofors case. He said he had "lived with humiliation and loss of reputation" all these years.

Here is what he said..

"My family and I are happy to note the statement made by Former Swedish Police Head investigating the Bofors - India Gun deal. Mr Lindstorm has stated that we were innocent and that there was never ever any evidence to indicate our involvement. The interview indicates that it took Mr Lindstorm 25 years to come out with the truth. For us as a family that has borne the humiliation and insults for the past 25 years this comes as an vindication of our stand. What has been most disturbing for me has been the pain of insinuation that my ageing parents had to bear during their lifetime. What has also been most alarming has been the statement given by the Police Head that my name was "planted" deliberately when he had indeed, already through his investigation, not found us guilty. When the accusations were made my family and I moved the London courts and proved our innocence. We won our case and were delighted that the truth had eventually been justified. But, for the former Police Head to have not stated then what he always knew, is most surprising. The abuse, humiliation and the castigation that our family bore for 25 years has now been vindicated, finally"

The Bofors case dates back to 1986, when Swiss arms manufacturer Bofors landed a Rs.1,500 crore contract to supply 155 mm howitzers to India. A year later, Swiss media began reporting that the company had paid massive kickbacks to Indian politicians, including then prime minister Rajiv Gandhi, and defence officials.

Big B underwent humiliations coming from his detractors.. during the time of the release of Shahenshah.. tight security arrangements were made in  Maratha Mandir in Mumbai with sniffer dogs even the iconic megastar posters where painted black during the scandals..
