Twenty five years after he was tainted with the Bofors scam, Amitabh Bachchan finally feels free.
Former Swedish police chief Sten Lindstrom’s statement that the actor was not involved in the Bofors scam came as a huge relief for the star. While Amitabh refused to slander anyone related to the case, he did mention that he wished his father, Harivansh Rai Bachchan, had lived to see his son vindicated.
Amitabh was eloquent on his blog when he described his trial, “Do not destroy me by the absence of your company. That would be unbearable – now and ever !!… 25 years after the incident, I read today from one that pioneered accusation and investigation, of innocence. Of the fault that never lay before me. Of one that remained and shall perhaps remain a darkened spot, blemished beyond all recognition, but in admittance of wrong doing against me. No one shall be able to understand or even remotely fathom, the hours and days and months and years of the anguish of petulant blame, that I had to go through.”
