Former deputy Chief Minister and Goa Forward party president Vijai Sardesai urged Bachchan to steer clear of the National Games.
Days after Goa’s Sports Minister Govind Gaude claimed that Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan had agreed to lend his voice to the theme song of the upcoming National Games, scheduled to be held in Goa, the opposition in Goa has urged the legendary actor to exercise caution.
Addressing a press conference here, former deputy Chief Minister and Goa Forward party president Vijai Sardesai urged Bachchan to steer clear of the National Games, alleging a scam worse than the Commonwealth Games in the event hosted in Goa.
“Amitabh Bachchan is a superstar. The National Games will be worse than the Commonwealth Games. It will be a scam. I don’t know whether Amitabh Bachchan should lend his voice to a scam. Please make him understand that there is a scam in the making,” Sardesai said.
He also said that the “scam” would be exposed during the upcoming monsoon session of the state legislative assembly.
The much delayed 37th National Games are scheduled to be held in Goa in October this year.
Last week, the state Sports Minister Govind Gaude had posted a photo on Twitter with Bachchan, announcing that the latter would sing the theme song for the Games.
“Met India’s legendary actor @SrBachchan Sahab today. He had agreed to render his iconic voice to the theme song of the 37th National Games to be held in Goa. Completely taken back by his humility as an artist and warmth of his hospitality. And that’s what makes him the finest actor,” Gaude had said.
