Amazon announced Monday that they have signed up Bollywood star Amitabh Bachchan tech giant’s voice assistant device Alexa starting next year.

“The baritone that has enchanted the Indian film industry for over five decades will soon deliver a unique voice experience to the many Indian customers who use Alexa. Yes, you heard that right! Amitabh Bachchan has partnered with Amazon to create a unique celebrity voice experience,” stated an Amazon blog post published Monday announcing the Bachchan partnership.
