Megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who was on Tuesday issued a notice by the Supreme Court over tax dues, reacted philosophically to the development, saying "both death and Income Tax Department are inevitable in life." The apex court issued the notice on a petition by the Income Tax department, which has claimed that the megastar owes to it Rs 1.66 crore as taxes on his income he earned through quiz show 'Kaun Banega Crorepati' during 2001-02.

"There are two things in life that one will have to face - death and I-T Department. Both are inevitable. In any case I will follow the Court's order," Bachchan told reporters here at the first promo of upcoming film 'Jolly LLB'. 'Jolly LLB', directed by Subhash Kapoor of 'Phas Gaya Re Obama' fame, is a satire on Indian judiciary system. The film will see Arshad Warsi and Boman Irani playing lawyers.
   
Bachchan was the chief guest at the event. "I am truly impressed with the promo of the film and I really liked it a lot. I hope the film achieves great success," he said. Asked if he ever had a bitter experience with the judiciary, Big B said, "no not really. I remember when my name cropped up during Bofors case in London...the only weapon I had was speaking the truth. We were on the side of truth and we won."
   
On the last month's gangrape case in Delhi, the 70- year-old actor said, "We as individuals need to introspect how we can change ourselves instead of pin-pointing fingers at others."
