Big B spins a magical tune

Big B spins a magical tune

ROCKING: Amitabh Bachchan in Aladin.

The song is sung by Sudesh Bhonsle. While working on the song, Big B came up with an alaap at the spur of the moment. Hearing this, the music directors Vishal and Shekhar decided to incorporate the alaap in the song.

Says Vishal, “The alaap at the end of the song was never planned. Mr Bachchan came up with this impromptu addition which turned out so well that we decided to make it a part of the song.” What impressed everyone all the more, was the fact that Amitabh, who is not really professionally trained, was able to sing it so well.

“Doing an alaap is not easy and requires thorough practice. But Amitji did it wonderfully and that’s really amazing.” adds Vishal.

Interestingly, the film’s theatrical promo opens with this rendition in AB’s distinctive baritone. Now that’s what we call Big B’s touch that never ceases to fascinate us.
