Amitabh Bachchan in the Kaun Banega Crorepati show
HE IS KNOWN for his distinctive baritone and has sung in films previously, but superstar Amitabh Bachchan admitted to nerves while recording a special song for the sixth season of the hit game show Kaun Banega Crorepati (KBC).
Bachchan, 69, is the most popular host of the Indian version of Who Wants to be a Millionaire, which will be shown from September 7.
Writing on his blog, Bachchan said: “The crowning glory is the session at (composer duo) Salim-Sulaiman’s recording studio later at night to record a song for KBC, and my extreme hesitation in doing so for it is a moment filled with immense self consciousness.
“I have not done much with Salim-Sulaiman, and that always comes in the way when they are in charge. I opt often for Aadesh Shrivastava, because many a long night has been spent there in uninhibited jamming. There is that comfort within the studios of Vishal-Shekhar, but Salim-Sulaiman, made me nervous and anxious and yes, the butterflies which have now found permanent residence within my intestines. However, this must be said, the experience tonight has been most rewarding and fruitful.”
Ever the self deprecator, Bachchan, who successfully lent his voice to songs in films such as Silsila, Laawaris, Don and Kabhi Kabhie, among others, said: “My singing as always awful, their sound is awesome, and there shall be several sittings before they shall decide whether I have passed muster.”
