I stopped endorsing Maggi 2 years ago: Amitabh Bachchan

A number of states have banned Maggi noodles and many others have sent samples of it to labs for testing. Along with Nestle group, even the celebrities who endorsed it are facing the heat and megastar Amitabh Bachchan is one among them.

While an FIR has been filed against him for endorsing Maggi noodles, the actor clarifies that he is not the brand ambassador of the product anymore, as per a report published in NDTV.

The 'Piku' actor further said that he had endorsed the product two years ago.

Before endorsing Maggi noodles, he had checked with Nestle if the product was safe or not. Only after getting an assurance from the Nestle group, he went ahead with the contract.

However, the 72-year-old actor is ready to cooperate with the law whenever he receives a legal notice.

Besides Amitabh Bachchan, an FIR has been filed against actress Preity Zinta and Madhuri Dixit too for endorsing the noodles.
