Bachchan said the video, in which Vishwas is seen singing the poem, was a “copyright infringement” and should be removed from the popular video-sharing site, YouTube, within 24 hours.

“This is a copyright infringement..! legal will take care of this,” Bachchan tweeted.

The video – with Bachchan’s poem Need ka Nirmaan Phir Phir — is part of his programme Tarpan, in which the AAP-leader-cum-poet pays tribute to noted Hindi poets.

In a statement, the Aam Aadmi Party member said that he had received appreciation from the families of all the poets he had paid tribute to in his videos, and it was only Bachchan who had reacted by serving him a legal notice. Vishwas then said the video has been deleted from Youtube and he would be sending his earnings from the video – a meagre Rs 32.
