Amitabh Bachchan has been promised Rs 32 by Aam Aadmi Party leader and performance poet Kumar Vishwas to whom the 74-year-old actor sent a legal notice.

In a tweet, Mr Bachchan notified Kumar Vishwas that he was guilty of copyright infringement and that 'legal will take care of this.' In response, Mr Vishwas has tweeted that the video is being taken offline and that a sum of Rs 32 will be paid to Amitabh Bachchan as royalty. The poem used is titled Neend Ka Nirmaan, Phir Phir. Kumar Vishwas' song, with the same title as the poem, was uploaded last week on YouTube, from where it was shared with Mr Bachchan by a fan.

Harivansh Rai Bachchan was a celebrated poet of the Nayi Kavita movement. Very little of his work has made its way to Bollywood. Most notably, the Holi song Rang Barse from Amitabh Bachchan's Silsila contains lyrics by the poet. Harivansh Rai Bachchan died in 2003 at the age of 95.

Amitabh Bachchan has wrapped the Malta schedule of his new film Thugs Of Hindostan and has not begun work on the next schedule yet. Thugs Of Hindostan also stars Aamir Khan and Katrina Kaif. It releases sometime next year.
