When it comes to the charisma of voice, which can influence people worldwide, one name that triggers our mind is the voice of Big-B. Bollywood actor Amitabh Bachchan is all set to add another feather to his cap. He might soon be the voice navigator on Google Maps. Hence, would it not be amazing that the voice which has ruled millions of hearts with his dialogues from his iconic films and the iconic show “Kaun Banega Crorepati”, will now also be heard on Google Maps? According to a recent report, Google Maps are in talks with the actor to use his voice for Google Navigations. If this exposition is true, then India’s Google Map will have his voice for all navigation instructions. His deep and unique voice has been used in many films in which he has not even acted. It has also been used in various radio ads.
The ‘Sholay’ actor has one of the most influential and recognisable baritones in India. As a result, he is perhaps the best choice for the voice of Google Maps. It is his voice in the first place, which gave him identification to play different characters in the Indian film industry. According to reports, the actor has not yet signed any contract related to the use of his voice. The decision is now up to him. The New-York based entertainer and voice-over artist; Karen Jacobsen is currently providing her own voice for the navigation system. She is the new voice of Google Maps in the US. That might be the reason why Google is trying to hire Amitabh Bachchan to be the new voice of their app in India.
Amitabh Bachchan recently celebrated his 47th wedding anniversary with his beloved Jaya Bachchan. He shared pictures from his marriage on social media and wrote, “47 years… today … June 3, 1973! Had decided if Zanjeer would succeed, we would, along with a few friends go to London for the first time … My Father asked who you going with? When I told him who, he said you must marry her before you go .. else you don’t go .. So…I obeyed!”
It is believed that Amitabh Bachchan had a liking for Jaya Bachchan even before they worked together in Guddi (1971). It seems he saw her on a magazine cover and fell for her. On reading her interview, he understood that she had a progressive outlook combined with traditional values. Undoubtedly, Big-B throughout his career has raised a wonderful family both professionally and in his personal life. He has given the film industry a meaning to survive on beautiful films enriched with storylines, role plays, concepts and ideologies. He is referred as the “Shahenshah of Bollywood” or the “Star of The Millenium”. Hence, we are hundred percent sure that if he gets introduced to the world of Google Maps, then no wonder he is going to create his own magic over there too.
