The rich baritone voice of Amitabh Bachchan will soon come under the provisions of the Copyright Act. The voice of Big B is being used in various TV commercials and TV comedy shows by mimicry artistes.
Amitabh is said to have been annoyed that a gutka company copied his voice for their advertisement, especially when the Big B does not smoke or propagate smoking or any kind of intoxicant and keeps away from endorsing such products. Amitabh said that it is disgusting to find someone conflagrating the law of the land and the law of ethics. He posted online that he is going to copyright his voice so that it’s not copied in this manner anymore.
