After the Hanuman Chalisa set to a trendy youth-oriented beat ,Amitabh Bachchan and his 'Hanuman'(that's how the composer likes to see himself) are coming together for the most ambitious musical project involving the Big B.
It would be a musical rendering of the Bhagvat Geeta as written by the Big B's dad Harivanshrai Bachchan.
Says the Big B, "Aadesh Shrivastav and I will now be collaborating over a new interpretation of the Bhagavat Geeta. It's one of my father's unknown and unacknowledged masterpieces, of immense literary and religious value. We'll be doing a musical version of my father's Bhagavat Gita which he had translated into the language and meter of the Ramayan. In this, the centenary year of my father's existence I can think of no better tribute," ends the proud son emotionally.
The challenge for Aadesh begins now. "It's one thing for me to collaborate with Bachchan Saab who's like an elder brother. We've done every kind of song from love ballads to hip-hop to bhangra to Bhajans. But now we're talking about his distinguished father. And that makes my responsibility increase several times."
Aadesh has been spending sleepless nights pouring over the senior-most Bachchan's lines. "I promise you I'll come up with tunes that will do Amitji's father, Amitji and me proud," promises Aadesh.
