Covid awareness caller tune in Amitabh Bachchan's voice gets replaced

New Delhi/IBNS: The public service announcement to raise awareness in regards to coronavirus in the voice of superstar Amitabh Bachchan as the caller tune for every call in India is getting replaced.

The replacement announcement came just two days ahead of the vaccination rollout drive which starts from Jan 16.

The caller tune, listing the safety measures for the pandemic, had faced growing resentment as the pandemic dragged on.

Many have complained about being forced to listen to it every time a phone call is made.

The new caller tune has a female voice and will be used for raising awareness about the Covid-19 vaccination drive.

"The new year has brought a new ray of hope in the form of vaccines. Vaccines developed in India are safe, effective and will provide immunity," it says.

The message appeals to the public to have faith in Indian vaccines and not believe in rumours.

It also urges people to continue with precautions even though vaccinations have begun using Prime Minister Narendra Modi's new slogan "Dawaai bhi, kadaai bhi (Medicine and caution both)".
