"DEAR ALL ... FAKE VIDEO CIRCULATION ..In the year 2007, I did a 'Lead India' campaign for the The Times of India, where we talked of the glorification of the country and India !" Bachchan posted in his blog.
"SOMEBODY has made a fake video by using my voice and text of what I spoke in the original, and falsely and mischievously, interspersed it with visuals which indicate a campaign for the promotion of the Hon Chief Minister of Gujarat, Shri Narendra Modi !!" he said.
"I wish to state that this is an illegal act, inviting strong action, one that I am appalled by, and one that has no concurrence from me at all," said Big B.
"I have brought this to the notice of the concerned authorities, and asked my Digital Team to find out its origin so that we can initiate action against the perpetrator.
"This is a blatant misuse and infringement of the Copyright Act, and needs to be condemned by all those that become a part of this platform. Infuriated and angered !!" Bachchan blogged.
He further said: "In a world filled with all kinds of venom and distaste, malicious intent and perpetrators of all legality, there is a limit to which one shall be able to tolerate."
Meanwhile, Modi backed Bachchan and tweeted: "Agree with @SrBachchan . The author of the fake video should take action immediately and apologize to Amitabh ji."
