Bachchan has been served as many as four notices by the Income Tax department since November 2005.

In February, the Income Tax department had served a notice to Bachchan seeking details of Tax Deducted at Source deductions by the superstar promoted-Amitabh Bachchan Corporation Ltd in 2000-2005.

Earlier, in January, Bachchan had received a notice from the I-T department regarding his personal tax dues, at a time he was admitted to the hospital.

Bachchan had paid the amount of about Rs 5 crore from the hospital itself.

In June this year, the latest notice was regarding the Ray Ban sunglasses Rs 2.7 lakh, which Bachchan has sported to give a real blind look to his character in the forthcoming film Zamaanat .

According to reports, the I-T department has issued a notice asking Bachchan to explain the purchase of Ray Ban glasses worth Rs 2.7 lakh.

Bachchan had bought the sunglasses from New York, because his role as a blind lawyer demanded it. He then insisted on paying for it and later, gifted it to the director S Ramanathan.

The sunglasses are expensive as they have a bifocal lens and also serve as regular spectacles. Moreover, they are Italian frames by designer Roberto Cavalli, prices start at Rs 40,000.
