"She has been recognised and awarded for her talent globally and I don't think there can be a better ambassador for Incredible India than Priyanka. And of course, Amitabh Bachchan, who is loved and adored by all. I think the two of them are the most incredible representatives of Incredible India"
Amitabh Bachchan and Priyanka Chopra will replace Aamir Khan as new ambassadors of the Incredible India campaign to market the country to tourists abroad. Mr Bachchan's name was reportedly suggested by the Prime Minister's office and he was recruited directly by the government, unlike Aamir Khan
"I don't have anything to do with it. Neither was I recruited, nor was I let go. Please leave me out of it," said Shah Rukh Khan. Amitabh Bachchan was roped in to promote the Incredible India campaign after Aamir's contract ended. Aamir also said he respected the government's decision not to extend his contract in this regard
Mr Bachchan spent nearly four hours at Mumbai's Sanjay Gandhi National Park (SNGP), a wildlife habitat bang in the middle of the city. Speaking exclusively to NDTV he said, "I am happy to support the efforts the Maharashtra government is making for tiger conservation. If my voice, my face can make a difference, I am happy to do so"
