Amitabh Bachchan is one name that has been associated with numerous brands over the years. While the actor continues to be the face for many more, he will soon be retiring from the post of being the brand ambassador for soft drink major Pepsi. Interestingly, though Bachchan who has been the brand's ambassador for the past eight year recently said that he will no longer be endorsing the soft drink.

Apparently, in his address at IIM – A, Bachchan commented that he stopped endorsing Pepsi after a girl in Jaipur asked him why he promoted the soft drink that her teacher had branded as 'poison'. At the seminar he also added, "This impression is on the mind of the people… So I stopped endorsing Pepsi, I tell this to my son Abhishek and to daughter-in-law Aishwarya also… If you have to endorse a product then you have to conduct your life in such a manner that it does not affect others' lives."
