Will cooperate in legal proceedings: Big B on Maggi row

Mumbai, June 3 (IANS) Amitabh Bachchan has been dragged into the Maggi noodles controversy because of his earlier association with the brand. The megastar says though he is yet to receive any legal notice, he will extend his help for smooth legal proceedings, adding that he stopped being the face of the brand two years ago.

“I haven’t received any notice yet. As soon as I will get it I will put it up to my lawyers. We will fully cooperate with whatever the law says,” the 72-year-old said at an event here on Wednesday.

“I also want to add that I stopped endorsing Maggi two years ago. I don’t endorse it anymore. I haven’t been associated with the product anymore,” he added.

The cine icon opened up about the controversy at the launch of the second teaser of his upcoming film “Wazir”. Multi-talented Farhan Akhtar was also present at the event.

Other Bollywood celebrities like Madhuri Dixit and Preity Zinta have also landed into legal trouble for endorsing Maggi noodles.

A case has been registered against Nestle India in a local court in Barabanki in Uttar Pradesh by food regulator FSDA (Food Safety and Drug Administration), after they found monosodium glutamate or MSG and lead in excess of the prescribed limit in Maggi samples they tested.
