Extending his support to noted social activist Anna Hazare’s fight against corruption, Bollywood actor Amitabh Bachchan said he would always back issues that benefit the country and also called upon the media to commit themselves to the cause.

“I shall always be supportive of any issue which benefits the nation. I do not have to preach and shout out my allegiance towards my country from the rooftop every day,” he said, before adding, “My loyalty is not up for questioning and is not most certainly in a realm where it can be doubted.”

His comments came as a response to a statement made by an anonymous writer on his site. “It’s painful to know that without having complete knowledge of the matter from my end, she could assume non-existent factors. To state that I’m busy and interested in earning my money only and not concerned with matters of social interest, is unacceptable and unfair,” Bachchan said.
