New Delhi: While his father, megastar Amitabh Bachchan is Gujarat`s brand ambassador, actor Abhishek Bachchan could soon be seen promoting Madhya Pradesh, officials said Thursday.

AK Bhattacharya, CEO of Eco Tourism Board, said: "Yes, we have sent a proposal to him, and waiting for his response."

The junior Bachchan has a maternal link to Bhopal as Jaya Bachchan`s parents live in the City of Lakes.

Jaya`s father, Tarun Bhaduri, was a journalist in Madhya Pradesh.
