Panama papers leak: What's with the silence, Amitabh Bachchan?

As many as 500 Indians have been named in a massive leak of 11.5 million tax documents revealing offshore assets, through an investigation helmed in collaboration with India by Indian Express.

Among other Indians, Amitabh Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai have found place in the list that was gathered from the secret files of Mossack Fonseca, a law firm based in tax haven Panama.

And while a spokesperson for Aishwarya Rai has denied this claim, calling it 'totally untrue and false', there has been radio silence on Amitabh Bachchan's side.

What's the big deal, you ask? Well, we did the tedious task of finding out the last time Amitabh Bachchan's social media had no post in 24 hours, and as it turns out, there isn't a single day when he hasn't been active on social media. Infact, he updates his social media every couple of hours, regardless of what time zone he is in. Despite going all the way back to November 2014, we couldn't find  a single instance where Bachchan had stayed silent on social media for a day-long duration.

Bachchan either updates a status, or a facebook post (usually with pictures) or updates his blog, or at the very least, re-tweets a couple of tweets on his timeline. However, a quick glance through his social media and there has been no update in the last 18 hours.

This was his last tweet:

Why the silence, Mr. Bachchan?
