Mega star Amitabh Bachchan said Wednesday he was happy to be cleared of the Bofors allegations but was "pained" this had happened after 25 years.
Speaking to reporters here, Bachchan said that he had "lived with humiliation and loss of reputation" all these years.
However, he wished his father, the late Harivanshrai Bachchan, had lived to see the development. "My family knew the truth on Bofors all along, from day one," Bachchan said.
Bachchan's reactions came in response to fresh revelations in the Bofors case in which the Swedish investigator said his (Bachchan's) name was planted by Indian investigating agencies.
