Mumbai, April 5 (IANS) Megastar Amitabh Bachchan on Tuesday denied links with any of the offshore shipping companies in which he is supposed to be a director according to the leaked “Panama Papers”.

“I do not know any of the companies referred to by Indian Express – Sea Bulk Shipping Company Ltd, Lady Shipping Ltd, Treasure Shipping Ltd and Tramp Shipping Ltd,” the actor said in a statement.
