It's not the plot of a James Bond movie — Pierce Brosnan is being threatened with jail time.

Indian officials are warning the actor that he could face two years behind bars if he doesn't provide an explanation for why he appeared in an advertisement promoting a company that sells mouth-freshening products, including some that contain tobacco, according to the BBC.

It's illegal to advertise tobacco products in India.

Brosnan — best known for portraying 007 in the James Bond films — was featured in the ad for Pan Bahar about 18 months ago, and has claimed in the past that his inclusion in the advertisement was "unauthorized."

James Bond, also known as Pierce Brosnan , has been threatened with jail time after appearing in an ad for an Indian mouth freshener which can contain an addictive type of chewing tobacco.

Delhi health officials have threatened to fine or jail the actor Pierce Brosnan if he fails to explain why he appeared in adverts for a chewing mixture that sometimes includes tobacco. Pierce Brosnan apologises over Indian ad for shunned chewing mixture.

The specific Pan Bahar product that Brosnan's image was used to promote did not contain tobacco, but other goods sold by the company do, according to The Guardian.

In addition to the potential jail time, Brosnan, 64, could face a small fine.

Members of the health department in Delhi, India, say they've reached out to Brosnan seeking an explanation. He's being given 10 days to reply.

"We have issued the notice to Pierce Brosnan through the company, and also reached out to him via social media platforms," officials told the Indian Express newspaper.

Brosnan initially addressed his image appearing in the ad in October 2016 by stating he'd only signed on to promote one product — not the entire company — and that he was told the item he was promoting did not contain tobacco or other dangerous components.

"As a man who has spent decades championing women's healthcare and environmental protection, I was distressed to learn of Pan Bahar's unauthorized and deceptive use of my image to endorse their range of pan masala products," Brosnon said statement at the time, according to People. "I would never have entered into an agreement to promote a product in India that is dangerous to one's health."

Brosnan also noted he'd lost his first wife, daughter and several friends to cancer.

Pan Bahar, meanwhile, refutes Brosnan's claims that the company deceived him. It also asserts the brand shouldn't be connected to tobacco and should instead be viewed as a mouth freshener.

Trudeau, Modi agree to jointly fight extremism .
NEW DELHI - Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi says he and Justin Trudeau agreed to fight terrorism and those who misuse religion to divide people following a bilateral meeting between the two in New Delhi this morning. Modi rolled out reams of red carpet and a horse honour guard and threw his arms around the prime minister in a hug as Trudeau arrived at the presidential palace. Their meeting comes near the end of a trip which has been dogged by criticism the trip was mostly a Trudeau family vacation in fancy Indian clothing and the embarrassment that the Canadian government had to uninvite a convicted attempted assassin to a Trudeau reception.
