On May 11, Amitabh took to his blog n Tumblr and said that there are new government guidelines that bar people with a huge number of followers from promoting something without a disclaimer.
"There are strict rules and regulations now by the GOI (Government of India) and the ASCI (Advertising Standards Council of India) guidelines, I think that is who they are, who have now given ruling that Influencers - a new terminology for them that put up product pictures with a mention or product pictures, to state that they are the sponsors, promotors etc., or in partnership," he wrote.
"Else it is becoming illegal. So several posts of mine have been given notices that the change should be done…else…ya..!! It's a tough life ain’t it. And all the ‘biggies’ that are buying out the ‘biggies’ of social media give reasons for incentives, increases etc., on the numbers - for that is what brings them the commercial...," he added.
