Big B sings again for a film and this time goes one up with a medley of his own numbers
Vickey Lalwani (MUMBAI MIRROR; May 09, 2011)
Four iconic Amitabh Bachchan numbers will now be a part of his new film Buddah. And since it is his home production, the Big B will up the scales by singing the hit medley all by himself.
Starting his musical career by reciting a poem for Yash Chopra’s Kabhi Kabhie in 1976, Bachchan went on to sing full-fledged songs that became hits in the 1980s. After a few initial hits, in Mr Natwarlal, Lawaaris and Silsila, he was asked to sing almost for every film he did.
He last sung for Paa (2010), which was a hit. And this time, the star has decided to sing for his home production again.
However, the interesting part about this song in Puri Jagannath’s Buddha is that is is a medley of four iconic Big B numbers: Khaike Paan Banaraswala from Don, Rang Barse from Silsila, Saara Zamana Haseeno Ka Deewana from Yaarana and Pag Ghungroo from Namak Halal.
The shooting of the song to be picturised on Bachchan himself was also completed recently. “Puri is very fast. He functions like a rocket,” said a source close to the film.
A source close to the film revealed, “Actually, this same medley was done for The Unforgettables Tour in 2008, wherein Bachchan had lent his voice.”
However, keeping the film modifications in mind, Bachchan re-recorded the medley for Buddha. The recording was done at Vishal-Shekhar Studio in Bandra. Said an More >

Now Prateik and not Abhishek Bachchan will pay the lead in Goldie’s film.
Shooting in the Mumbai streets in movies about life in the metropolis has become a way of life for Prateik Babbar. Last month he shot for Raghav Dar’s My Friend Pinto on the Mumbai streets. Now during the whole of July Prateik will be on the streets of Mumbai shooting in the pelting rain for a thriller set in the monsoon.
Remember Smita Patil’s celebrated song in the rain ‘Aaj Rapat Jayen‘ with Amitabh Bachchan in Namak Halal? Apparently, Smita was so unhappy doing a rain song that she cried after she came home.
One hopes Prateik likes the rain more. Goldie will shoot the entire film tentatively entitled Copycat in the rains.
Says the director, “It’s gritty realistic romantic thriller set on the streets of Mumbai during the rains. We’ll be shooting from July through the monsoon.”
Goldie didn’t want artificial studio rains for the film. But he did want Prateik for the lead. Says Goldie, “There’s something special about that boy, besides the fact that he looks so much like his mother. He suits the role perfectly.”
A new girl will star opposite Prateik. A short-list of hopefuls has been drawn up and Goldie would take his best-friend and almost-brother Abhishek’s help to choose the finalist for the female lead.
