Mumbai: Bollywood star Amitabh Bachchan, who is equally known for his grave and mercurial voice, has now sung and composed a song titled Badumba for his upcoming film 102 Not Out. The 75-year-old announced the news on Twitter and also shared some pictures from the shoot rehearsals of the track, which will be choreographed by noted choreographer Ganesh Acharya.
“Sung a song and composed it for ‘102 not out‘… Rehearsals on with the great Ganesh… Shoots on in a few… It’s BAADDUUUMBAAAA! TRUST ME…” Bachchan tweeted.

The actor also wrote on his blog that how even after almost 50 years in the industry he gets jitters when it comes to dancing rehearsals and feels the nervous excitement when the song releases.
“Those apprehensions still remain… It is a torture to be given the decision of picturising a song, of being asked to dance… To get it right… To the fear of repeated mistakes… Particularly when in the open spaces of an outdoor where millions watch you… Watch you making mistakes and retakes…” he said.
The film is being helmed by Oh My God! director Umesh Shukla.
The movie, which is based on Saumya Joshi’s Gujarati play of the same name, will see Rishi Kapoor portraying the character of Bachchan s 75-year-old son.
The actor duo, who have worked together in films such as Amar Akbar Anthony, Kabhi Kabhie, Naseeb and Coolie, will reunite on screen after 26 years.
Amitabh has been quite active in the film and TV industry. He just completed a quite successful season of Kaun Banega Crorepati. In 2017, he appeared in the third instalment of the Sarkar film series: Ram Gopal Varma’s Sarkar 3. He has also committed to starring in Thugs Of Hindostan with Aamir Khan, Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Shaikh which is set for release in November 2018. In 2016, he appeared in the women-centric courtroom drama film Pink which was highly praised by critics and with an increasingly good word of mouth, was a resounding success at the domestic and overseas box office. Bachchan’s performance in the film received acclaim.
Amitabh Bachchan has been singing in films since 1979’s Mr Natwarlal and reciting in songs since Adalat (1977), made four decades ago.
This is the 36th film for which Bachchan has lent his voice for a song (sometimes more than one, as in Silsila, Baghban and Baabul), mostly as a singer but sometimes just to speak or recite some passages. Kahaani remains the only film here in which he did not star yet sang a thematic number on the city of Kolkata.
