In addition to this, he also stated answering all the questions, which were part of this investigation.
He told the news channel, “Whatever documents, details they asked for, we gave. Whatever questions they asked, I answered. I did my part, they did theirs. Whatever questions they raised, we answered each and every one of them with documents. That’s my duty. We are still providing documents…it is part of the process.” He added, “I make sure every single penny donated by anyone in this universe is accounted for.” On being asked by IT department for violating the law, he said, “Of course not.”
From being accused of evading taxes incurred on the sum of Rs 20 crore to being questioned that Rs. 1.9 crore being used for relief work despite receiving a donation of Rs. 20 crore, the actor replied to all these accusations.
