    Wearing A Lawyer's Attire Lands Amitabh Bachchan In Legal Trouble!


    Amitabh Bachchan lands in legal soup for wearing a lawyer's attire in a commercial and the Bar Council of Delhi has issued a legal notice to the actor. Big B has to respond within 10 days' time, failing which an action would be taken against him. In the commercial, Amitabh Bachchan is seen sitting in his dressing room, wearing a lawyer's suit and two junior artists enter and offer him Pav Bhaji. He eats the meal and applauds the food and the spices used in the preparation.

    Wearing A Lawyer's Attire Requires Authorisation From The Bar Council

    As per the legal terms, wearing a lawyer's attire for commercials needs permission from the Bar Council and the commercial is liable for legal action if the makers fail to do so. Without proper authorisation, one simply cannot don the lawyer's attire and make a commercial out of it.

    Notice From The Bar Council

    Here's what the Bar Council of Delhi's notice read - ''You are required to immediately stop all such advertisements and also give an undertaking to the Bar Council of Delhi, Bar Council of India and other states Bar Councils that the lawyers' attire shall not be used in any advertisement in future.''

    Legal Notices

    The legal notice has also been sent to the media house which was assigned for the commercial and even YouTube is slapped with the notice for allowing the video commercial to be published on their platform. The Bar Council also sent the notice to the brand for failing to take the necessary steps.

    This Is Not The First Time!

    Just a few months ago, Amitabh Bachchan faced heat for a jewellery commercial featuring him and his daughter Shweta Bachchan. It had to be withdrawn after legal action was threatened against it for deliberately showing bank employees in a negative light.
