"Had Bachchan's intentions been pure, he would have complained to the cyber cell and not with the copyright authorities," state NCP spokesperson Nawab Malik told reporters.

Malik's comments came on a day when a music composer from Rajkot admitted to having uploaded the fake video on the video-sharing website and apologised.
