‘Thugs Of Hindostan’: Amitabh Bachchan sings a lullaby and here’s the reason why
Amitabh Bachchan, who is playing Khudabaksh in ‘Thugs Of Hindostan’, has sung a few lines of a lullaby for the movie. Mr. Bachchan was excited to sing the song and he said that the song depicts the depth of the bond between Khudabaksh, his character and Zafira, the warrior thug played by Fatima Sana Shaikh.
“The song tells you the depth of the bond that Zafira and Khudabaksh share. I was most excited to sing this lullaby because it is not everyday that you get to sing one,” Amitabh was quoted as saying by IANS.
Written by Amitabh Bhattacharya, the lullaby is composed by music composers Ajay-Atul. Talking of the music, the ‘Pink’ actor said, “The lyrics are beautiful and the composition highlights the emotional journey of these two characters who have an incredible father-daughter relationship. I have been telling Aditya (Chopra) to put this in the album. I’m sure he will do it because it’s turned out to be a beautiful song.”
A source close to the film said that Vijay Krishna Acharya wanted to show a beautiful father-daughter relationship between the two. “He wanted to show the deep trust, the love and the respect that Zafira has for Khudabaksh and decided to add a moment of vulnerability between the two. Khudabaksh will be seen protecting Zafira at every step and they are inseparable souls,” he said.
The source further said that Mr Bachchan was very enthusiastic about singing this lullaby and he decided to record it himself at his home. “The initial idea was to make a short lullaby but Mr Bachchan went a step further and converted it into a song,” added the source.
