"The wheel on the left rear-end of the Mercedes carrying Bachchan got detached from the vehicle on Dufferin Road when he was going to the airport to catch a flight for Mumbai on Saturday morning," the senior secretariat member told PTI. "The car was provided by a travel agency and we have show-caused it over the incident," he added. The official also said that an initial investigation led to the discovery that the vehicle's "certificate of fitness" had expired.
On the inaugural day of the Kolkata International Film Festival, Amitabh Bachchan was joined on stage by several other film industry biggies like Kamal Haasan, Shah Rukh Khan, Kajol and Mahesh Bhatt.
