Amitabh Bachchan Becomes Alexa’s First Bollywood Voice


Amitabh Bachchan is Amazon Alexa‘s next voice. The global e-commerce giant and tech manufacturer is bringing India’s favourite Big B to support its voice assistant feature. It is notable that Amitabh Bachchan’s voice is considered just as iconic in the man himself. From his many superhit Bollywood films to the television screens with KBC, fans have forever been in love with his baritone voice. Thanks to Amazon, you will soon be able to hear Big B’s powerful voice on your Alexa-powered devices as well.

Amazon announced the delightful news that it is partnering with Amitabh Bachchan for its next Alexa celebrity voice through its latest blog post. Remarkably, his professional life and commitment is also an inspiration to young actors.

We were already awed by the fact that even after recently fighting COVID-19, the 77-year old superstar was back to work and shot for 7 films this Sunday. If that wasn’t enough, Amitabh Bachchan’s Alexa celebrity voice has become the first-ever from any Indian celebrity to feature on the Amazon’s Voice Assistant.

The blog also quoted Amitabh Bachchan saying, “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.

Nevertheless, the latest addition of Amitabh Bachchan’s Alexa celebrity voice is an important development. India is currently regarded as a key growth market for the e-commerce giant outside the United States.

While it is presently most popular in the European countries; India’s growing numbers of smartphone users and large population make it an important market for the Alexa owner.
