Yes, you heard it right! Not only will we hear the majestic baritone of Amitabh Bachchan as he sings for Badumbaaa in Umesh Shukla's upcoming film '102 Not Out', but his co-star Rishi Kapoor too will be heard crooning for the first time in his career. Kapoor along with Amitabh Bachchan will be singing the song 'Badumbaaa' which is a fun, lively foot tapping number that has been composed by Bachchan.
During the last day of the shoot, the team was having a discussion about how '102 Not Out' should also have a song featuring both the actors. While Mr. Bachchan instantly gave a nod to the idea and even said that he would compose the song himself.
When Umesh Shukla, the director approached Rishiji to sing the song, though the actor was apprehensive he said that he would like to do rehearsals first and then sing. Talking about it, Umesh says, "When Rishiji came to the recording studio , he did the first rehearsal and after the first rehearsal itself he was himself surprised to discover his singing talent. We did not have have to do many retakes as his first one time was perfect."
Well, we are sure all his fans out there will be elated to see another facet of his multifaceted personality. Not only will we see the two superstars back after 27 years but also singing together!
