MUMBAI: In Rohit Shetty’s ‘Bol Bachchan’, Amitabh Bachchan’s iconic song from ‘Amar Akbar Anthony’ will be recreated with the megastar, his son Abhishek, and actor Ajay Devgn.

The 69-year-old will redo the entry scene from the famous "My name is Anthony Gonsalves" song. The song shot in 1977, showed Amitabh popping out of a life-sized egg and a similar stunt has been replicated for the "Bol Bachchan" title track video. The actor has also lent his voice for the track, featuring some of his iconic dialogues from "Amar Akbar Anthony" and other films, that resonate well with today’s generation.

"I spent the day recording for the song to be picturised on Abhishek, Ajay and myself for ‘Bol Bachchan’, the film being made by Rohit Shetty. It seemed a fun song, with lyrics and words dominating the space from some of my old ones," wrote Sr. Bachchan on his blog.

"Bol Bachchan", a Fox Star Studios presentation, is a comic caper, which also features Asin and Prachi Desai. It is slated for release July 6.
