Mumbai, May 3 - Shrugging off reports that filming rights of the AbhiAsh wedding were given to a TV channel, Amitabh Bachchan said that no such deal was struck with any media firm for the sale of pictures or filming of 'a very private moment'.
'No such rights were given. And even if we were offered such a deal, we'd have rejected it outright. The wedding was a very private moment for our family and close friends,' Amitabh told IANS.
'According to a report, we had sold the filming rights for Rs.50 million to a TV channel. We've received a letter from Rajiv Bakshi to whose channel we were reported to have sold the filming rights.
'He - categorically states that the report was completely false. Neither have we promised photographs to any particular publication. The truth is I haven't got any photographs yet. They're expected any time now.'
Amitabh is very clear about protecting his family's privacy. 'And if I'm called selfish for that, then yes I'm selfish. I'll protect and safeguard my family's interests.
'You can judge me, condemn me and nail me for my professional conduct. But you can't follow me with cameras into my home. The wedding was a private affair. And I maintain that.'
