Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan has rubbished reports that incidents of bottle throwing on his house during the MNS campaign against North Indians were `manipulated'.

"I have video and photographic evidence of it. Police and its high officials have done investigation and made reports. If some feel that this was manipulated they are so wrong. You attribute far too much to my devious acumen. I am afraid I do not possess such attributes. But as I said, this is a free country and everyone has the right to their own speech," Big B wrote in his blog responding to queries from bloggers.

He said, "If wrong has been done by me, then let the law of the land prevail. Punish me as it wills. I will not debate it. The questions on my buying land or my farmer status is still sub-judice, so I cannot make any comments on that yet. But I shall wait for the judgment to come and whichever way it goes I shall respect the verdict."

Amitabh said his wife Jaya's recent walk out from Parliament was her right as an MP.

"If there is motive in that, then let the Parliament take action if there is wrong. Amar Singhji is like a family member and his politics or for that matter the politics of Bala Saheb Thackeray or Mr Advani or any other political head, who have friendly and family relations with us, have never been a barrier," he said.

"They do not interfere in my films, I do not interfere or comment on their politics. Just because Mr Bill Clinton writes to me does not make me a Democrat in the US," he added.
