Actor, singer and composer Farhan Akthar has recorded a song, ‘Atrangi Yaari’, with Amitabh Bachchan for their upcoming film, Wazir. Farhan explains it was a delight to sing alongside the superstar.
“It was a very beautiful experience. We have heard his songs, which he has sung in many movies. It’s a wonderful song, so it was fun performing it together,” he says.
Farhan Akhtar has revealed that he has never specifically requested his producers for him sing in his films. He said,
“I never do that. In Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, I didn’t sing any song. In Shaadi Ke Side Effects, I had just one song, which was there in the background. Even in Luck By Chance, I didn’t sing any song. It depends on the genre of the song. If I think I can emotionally contribute to it through my character, then I do request. Otherwise no.”
Mr. Bachchan, who has previously sung songs for his films such as ‘Mere Angne Mein’ and ‘Main Yahan Tu Wahan’, does not consider himself a singer per se.
“I am not a singer. Nor do I know how to sing. But a lot of things happen in a film where people say if the actor sings the song, then it’ll be better. So, if it fits the scene, I sing,” says Mr. Bachchan.
We can’t wait to see this track in the film, keep it locked for more updates!
