Amitabh says that at the age of 75, he wants peace and freedom from prominence. He says that he do not seek headlines as he does not deserve them. First, he wrote on the notice served to him by BMC on illegal construction and media allegations against him. Speaking about media trial and issuing statements in media after allegations, he said,''if there is accusation, at times, I would prefer to correct the manner .. at times it is prudent to remain quiet .. the point is, does the issue gets resolved by response to media or not  .. on matters such as the one in question it shall be the Agency, the System that shall resolve it .. not the media''.

He went on to talk about infamous Bofors scandal that occurred between India and Sweden during the 1980s and 1990s. In the scandal, many personalities were accused of receiving kickbacks for winning a bid to supply India's 155 mm field howitzer. The actor said that for years he and his family were grilled and declared traitors and humiliated but finally they won in the court of law. ''For years we were grilled, declared traitors, abused and humiliated by the hour for several years .. when it became unbearable, we moved Court in the United Kingdom - for the requirement of speedy Justice .. we moved against a UK paper and won .BUT surprisingly those that accused us for years, never did come to the Courts of Justice to verify or justify their allegation,'' he wrote.

Writing about Panama Papers leak, Big B wrote, ''In recent months I find my name appear again in the leaks of Panama, as produced by the Indian Express .. the paper has asked for reactions, for responses, for justification or not, for replies to their investigative queries ..Two instant replies were given out by us .. of denial and misuse of name .. they were printed .. but the questions continued .. ''
