Mumbai: Amitabh Hasn't Committed a Crime, says Thackeray

Mumbai, Mar 27 (PTI) Coming out in defence of old friend Amitabh Bachchan, Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray today said the actor has done nothing wrong by attending the inauguration of the second phase of the Bandra-Worli Sea Link.

"Amitabh hasn't committed a crime by attending the event," Thackeray said in an editorial in party mouthpiece 'Saamana'.

Lambasting Congress for "treating the actor as an untouchable", Thackeray said "Shah Rukh Khan, who took cudgels on behalf of Pakistanis, will do for Congress, which is allergic to Amitabh."

"Amitabh attending the function only added to the prestige of the event," Thackeray said on the actor sharing the dias with Congress leaders at the sealink function.

Bachchan is not a thief, dacoit or a terrorist, Thackeray said.
