After spreading numerous memes and jokes about the news, internet users have now petitioned for a major change.
A Change.org petition wants journalist Arnab Goswami as the voice of Alexa in India.
The petition says:
Amitabh Bachchan holds himself back from commenting on the affairs of the nation. He always talks about himself and his family, he has never shown interest in Nation and asked for help and guidance for a campaign. His family supports Drug Nexus & Patriarchy of Bollywood.
Arnab Goswami alone had spoken his voice for the entire nation, asking for his help and starting a campaign to bring out the TRUTH for every justice and campaign against the government that risked his LIFE. Arnab deserves more RESPECT as the voice of the NATION than someone who speaks only for MONEY.
Nation openly supports Arnab Goswami more than Amitabh Bachchan when it comes to boldly speaking about TRUTH, INJUSTICE, DRUG NEXUS, NATIONALISM and RESPECT for other GOOD WORKS
Nation believe it̵
Let’s ALEXA have its original voice and we love it instead of picking someone from the public sector to discriminate against your users as there is always both sides of the coin and the Indian population is around 130 crore which can make a huge difference
Amitabh Bachchan lost respect for the nation in 2020. You can openly create a poll to check this out.
The Amazon Alexa team will work closely with Bachchan to capture the iconic voice and deliver a unique voice experience to customers.
It will feature popular offerings including jokes, weather, shayaris, motivational quotes and advice, the blog says.
Upon launch next year, customers in India will be able to easily access the Amitabh Bachchan voice experience by simply asking Alexa and having their favorite superstar’s voice respond instantly to popular requests.
“Technology has always given me the ability to adapt to new forms. Be it in movies, TV shows, podcasts, and now I’m looking forward to creating this language experience in collaboration with Amazon and Alexa.
“With language technology, we’re building something to more effectively connect with my audience and well-wishers,” said Bachchan.
Amazon’s digital assistant, Alexa, is available in addition to the free Alexa app and the Amazon shopping app (Android only) for Echo devices, Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote, Fire TV Edition.
In addition, several third-party devices such as cell phones, Bluetooth speakers, headphones, wearables and smart TVs are equipped with Alexa.

We are excited to see how our customers will react when they do.” Use Alexa and hear his voice, “said Puneesh Kumar, Alexa Country Leader, Amazon India.
