After a phenomenal 2011, Vidya Balan is geared up to rock the Box Office once again with her female-centric film, Sujoy Ghosh’s KAHAANI, and has garnered support from none other than Amitabh Bachchan, who has been promoting her film on various social networking sites.
Big B has sung Rabindranath Tagore’s iconic song ‘Ekla Cholo Re’ for the film and has been talking about it on his blog. “My friend Sujoy Ghosh of Aladin fame… puts out his trailer for his next with Vidya… Kahaani… interesting watch,” he tweeted.
KAHAANI unfolds in cinemas across the UK on 9th March, releasing through B4U Pictures and presented by Viacom 18 Motion Pictures.On his blog, Bachchan wrote, “May I just say that singing Rabindra Sangeet for the first time was the greatest revelation. The beauty of the language, the lyricism of the tune and its dhun (music) are outstanding. This particular, world famous number Ekla Cholo, expounding to all that if no one came to you on your calling, walk alone!! And what a fabulous song has been incorporated by Vishal-Shekhar. Truly awesome and worthy of all award.”
In response, Vidya commented, “That is very, very kind and generous of him. He has sung a song for us. It is a very special song for Kolkata and all the Bengalis. It has been sung by Mr. Bachchan, so it becomes all the more special.”
