Amitabh Bachchan is the megastar of Bollywood. He has been in the industry from the 51 years; he has done films, TV shows, and has also sung songs in his movies.
One thing about Big B that everyone loves is his voice. His deep baritone has always been the highlight of his movies and songs. And now, the megastar is all set to lend his voice to Amazon’s Alexa.
Big B will be the first Indian celebrity to lend his voice to Amazon’s Alexa digital assistant starting next year. In a blog post on Monday, Amazon India announced that Amitabh Bachchan’s “voice experience” feature will become available for purchase on Alexa next year.
The organization stated, “It will include popular offerings like jokes, weather, shayaris (poetry), motivational quotes, advice and more.”
Alexa first rolled out celebrity voice option last year with actor Samuel L. Jackson, following a similar move by Google the year before, which gave users the option of hearing singer John Legend on the Google Assistant.
Big B is also excited about this collaboration. He said in Amazon’s blog, “I am excited to create this voice experience. With voice technology, we are building something to engage more effectively with my audience and well-wishers.”
A couple of months ago, Amitabh Bachchan was tested positive for COVID-19. But he fought with the virus and he is healthy now. The megastar is currently busy with the shooting of Kaun Banega Crorepati season 12. He keeps on sharing pictures on Instagram from the sets of the TV show.
