At some point in life, we have all joked about having a popular character give us directions through voice navigation. It now appears that Google has heard all these jokes and more. No surprises there! Bollywood’s Shehenshah, Amitabh Bachchan, has reportedly been approached to lend his voice to our guiding light on unknown streets – Google Maps. While we’re obviously amused and excited to see things through, we still have to wait for confirmation on Big B’s acceptance of the offer.

Big B has certainly been a legendary name across the globe. Thus, this news comes as no surprise, to be honest. His deep baritone has given an edge to the narration in many well-known films too. But will Amitabh Bachchan’s voice on Google Maps actually work?
Twitter, as always, lit up with hilarious memes on the topic. Take a look:

With Amitabh Bachchan’s voice on Google maps, I think driving will become more difficult. Cannot register and follow *Anushasan, pratishtha and sammaan* and the directions at the same time. 🤭 #toomuchinformation

1. Partner, ab bol hi diye ho to dekh lenge.
2. Aisa to aadmi life mein doich time bhaagta h Olympic ka race ho, ya Police ka case ho. Tum kisliye bhaagta h bhai?

Just heard that Amitabh Bachchan is going to be the voice for Google Maps in India.
Would be looking forward to a tone that says: ”
Deviyon aur sajjano, sau meter aage se daaye lijiye, haayein”😀 @SrBachchan#AmitabhBachchan #GoogleMaps pic.twitter.com/xJWqDRyOqY

Google Maps India team has approached Amitabh Bachchan for giving voice directions in the app .
Just imagine reaching your destination and . . . . . .
Google Maps goes “Yeh tumhare baap ka ghar nahin, police station hai, isliye seedhi tahrah khade raho”

In case our car breaks down in the middle of the road and causes a jam, will this dialogue work?
Which Big B dialogue do you think could be an iconic navigation message for Google Maps?
