|Controversies|| His name appeared in the Bofors scandal in which he was later declared not guilty.
He was indicted for submitting false documents to prove that he is a farmer.
Stardust imposed a 15-years ban on him during his peak acting years. According to his blog, he brought the idea of a National Emergency and ban on Media. So, the media took that otherwise and banned Amitabh Bachchan: means no interviews, no mention or pictures, etc.
In 1996, he had to face a legal battle for organizing the Miss World competition inappropriately.
In 2007, a Faizabad court ruled that Amitabh Bachchan was anything but a farmer a secret most of India would have guessed but one that has landed the superstar in trouble over two messy land deals. According to the court, the actor had got himself certified a farmer by forgery; so that he could hold on to a 24-acre plot he had bought near Lonavla in Pune in the mid-1990s. Since Maharashtra laws allow only a farmer to buy agricultural land, the actor showed the Pune district authorities a certificate from the then Barabanki district magistrate, Ramashankar Sahu, saying Amitabh was a farmer because he owned farmland in the district. The court ruled that the 1993 Barabanki land transfer in Amitabh's name was illegal.
In September 2021, he appeared in an advertising campaign of a paan masala brand for which he received heavy criticism from netizens on social media. Various NGOs including the National Organization for Tobacco Eradication (NOTE) and anti-tobacco organizations also urged him to withdraw himself from such advertisements. Next month, he withdrew from this advertisement campaign; it was revealed by a blog post, addressed by "the office of Mr Amitabh Bachchan," that read - "A few days after the commercial was aired, Mr Bachchan contacted the brand and stepped out of it last week. Upon checking why this sudden move - it was revealed that when Mr Bachchan became associated with the brand, he wasn't aware that it falls under surrogate advertising. Mr. Bachchan has terminated the contract with the brand, has written to them his termination and has returned the money received for the promotion."
