On his blog on Big Adda, Amitabh Bachchan expressed his growing interest towards Sitar and a Sarod. Big B write, “So am getting into the business of acquiring a Sitar and a Sarod soon enough so I may have the pleasure to be pulling a few strings!! These are times I shall look forward to... my Sitar, my Sarod, my Piano and me... sounds like the title of a really bad book or movie! Ha!”
The Bollywood actor continued, "But... even though I may be able to learn the instruments now, just the fact that I shall be holding them and pretending to be some great master, shall indeed be of great interest and value to me."
Amitabh Bachchan became singer with movies like The Great Gambler and Mr Natwarlal in 1979. Later, he has rendered his voice for several musical hit movies like Pukar, Aks, Baghban, Nishabd, Cheeni Kum, Paa, Bbuddah... Hoga Terra Baap.
