New Delhi: According to a complaint filed at Ashok Nagar police station here on Monday, Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan seems to have sung the National Anthem incorrectly at Eden Gardens before MS Dhoni-led Team India faced arch-rivals Pakistan in the ICC World T20 on Saturday.

According to media reports Ulhas PR, had filed a similar complaint at Juhu police station in Mumbai and alleged Senior Bachchan had been singing the anthem incorrectly even during Pro-Kabaddi league.

The complainant stated the national anthem sung by Bachchan had used 'wrong words', adding its duration had been 1 minute 22 seconds instead of 52 seconds as is the norm.

In his complaint, Ullhas also said that Bachchan used the word "Sindhu" in place of "Sindh" while singing the anthem.

Earlier, reports were doing the rounds that Big B charged 4 crores for his appearance at the iconic cricket venue. However, CAB President and former Indian captain Sourav Ganguly squashed all reports clarifying that Bachchan did not 'charge a single penny' for his performance.

But instead, Ganguly said that Bachchan had paid Rs 30 lakhs from his own pocket for his travel and stay in the City of Joy.
