Bollywood superstar, Amitabh Bachchan is famous for his films, sure. But another thing that Bachchan is known for is his baritone. Now, Amazon has announced that the actor will be lending his voice to its assistant device, Alexa next year.
Bachchan will be the first Indian actor to voice the Amazon artificial intelligence gadget.
This new feature will be available for Amazon’s Indian users and will offer jokes, weather updates, motivational quotes, advice, and more.
“Technology has always given me an opportunity to adapt to new forms. Be it in movies, TV shows, podcasts, and now, I am excited to create this voice experience in partnership with Amazon and Alexa,” Bachchan said, on Amazon India’s blog post. “With voice technology, we are building something to engage more effectively with my audience and well-wishers.”
