Embroiled in a controversy over allotment of land to him in Uttar Pradesh by the state's erstwhile Mulayam Singh Yadav government, superstar Amitabh Bachchan on Monday said he was ready to face probe in the matter.
Breaking his silence on the issue, he said "I am a law- abiding citizen and will obey whatever the law asks me to do. If proved wrong, we are ready to face penalty".
"If everything is found to be in order, I would say thank you", the actor told NDTV.
Bachchan refused to comment on Mayawati government's decision to probe the legality of the land allotment in Barbanki district but maintained that the property papers given to him by the government were in order.
"Now, the government is saying that it should be probed. I am ready," he added.
The BSP government had asked the Barabanki district magistrate to look into the land allotment and he has already submitted his report.
