Bachchan Pledges Allegiance To Mumbai
Bollywood actor AMITABH BACHCHAN has angrily hit back at claims he is disloyal to the Indian city of Mumbai.
The star has been targetted by right-wing Hindu nationalists who threw bottles at his mansion earlier this year (08).
The attack came after local politicians accused him of showing "little loyalty" to India's financial and entertainment city.
But Bachchan has now pledged his allegiance to the area.
He says, "Let them chuck a thousand bottles. Let them burn my effigies and conduct morchas (marches) in front of my house.
"I bought my first car here and my own house. I met and married my wife in this city and both my children were born here.
"This city gave me name and fame beyond anything I may have deserved."
