Amitabh Bachchan croons for world cup

MUMBAI: Film star Amitabh Bachchan has lent his voice to a song, Ek Alag Andaaz Hai…, targeted at the forthcoming cricket World Cup.

Bachchan’s lines go thus, “Hum To Hindustani Hain- Hamay apna fun maloom hai – jis taraf se guzrenge wahin raasta ban jaayega.” Music for the song has been composed by Shamir Tandon for Mauj. P9, Zee News and Big FM have been roped in for the promotion of the song across various platforms. “The song is a musical celebration or rather a dedication from the music industry to the Indian cricket team for the world cup,” says Tandon.

Actor Jackie Shroff also mouthed a couplet for the song, which sports the voices of Roop Kumar Rathod, Babul Supriyo, Zubeen Garg, Kailash Kher, Jojo, Vasundhara, Pratichi, Shweta Shetty and many more.

The Mauj song comes close on the heels of Wicket Bachca released by Saregama and UTV, which was followed by Venus’ album We Are The Champions featuring Altaf Raja and Rakhi Sawant.
