PTI quoted Big B saying, “All of us are now being subjected to face mapping, our entire body is going to be face mapped and going to be kept aside and used at any point of time.” He also said that this technology is already a controversial issue during Hollywood strikes by industry guilds and is now making its presence felt in Bollywood.

During the discussion, Bachchan disclosed that a Mumbai studio demonstrated face mapping on renowned Hollywood actor Tom Hanks. “A lot of objections are being raised and I believe that there's some kind of a strike in Hollywood by the artist because the producer and the director does your face mapping, laying claim to it and saying this is our property and we will use it whenever we want. So, there will be a time when Symbiosis will call my AI and not me personally”, he added.
