New Delhi: Amitabh Bachchan is upset and infuriated over a fake video on YouTube, in which he is shown promoting Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi.

Big B said that he did a campaign for a media group in the year 2007 where he talked of the glorification of the country. But, someone has made a fake video by using his voice and text and uploaded it on the YouTube.

"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 honourable Chief Minister of Gujarat, Narendra Modi," Bachchan posted on his blog (http://srbachchan.tumblr.com/), Wednesday night.

The 70-year-old also added that he has alerted authorities and would take action against the person, who had created the fake video and uploaded it on Youtube.

"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... 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," he posted.

"This is a blatant misuse and infringement of the Copyright Act, and needs to be condemned by all those that become a part of the platform. I am infuriated and angered," he added.

Bachchan's fans have shown support and posted comments favouring deletion of the video from YouTube.
