Megastar Amitabh Bachchan and filmmaker Shoojit Sircar have come together to pay tribute to mothers through a special montage video titled “Maa”.
Released two days before Mother’s Day on May 12, the video, with music by Anuj Garg and lyrics by Puneet Sharma, is a poignant homage to mothers with a rendition of the stirring lines in Amitabh’s voice. Take a look at the heart touching song:
Speaking on the idea behind the video and working with Amitabh again after movies like “Piku” and “Pink”, Sircar said in a statement: “This video is not just for those who have lost their mothers, but also those who are fortunate enough to still be in their mom’s shadows.
“The idea first came to me through music. Anuj pitched the musical piece to me, as a special birthday surprise for his wife, on behalf of his small son Yajat Garg, who incidentally is the child’s voice in the video.”
Sircar thought of making a montage video for mothers as the music really moved him.
“I felt none other than Mr. Bachchan could do vocal justice to the lyrics. So, I initially sent him small video clips along with the photo of him with his mother — the late Shri Teji Bachchan, asking his reaction. He immediately responded saying it was a great idea and agreed to do it,” Sircar said.
“For me, it was a powerful moment to shape a tribute which speaks from a child’s point of view as well as a person with decades of life gone by. No matter the age, we feel our mother’s presence all the time,” he added.
Superstar Salman Khan has shared a video of himself dancing to the tunes of “Urvasi urvasi” with dance icon Prabhudheva. Actor Kichcha Sudeep of “Eega” and filmmaker Sajid Nadiadwala are also seen shaking legs with the “Dabangg” star in the video shared on Twitter on Tuesday.
Salman captioned it: “Dance class from the master himself Prabhudheva, Kiccha Sudeep, Sajid Nadiadwala.”
“Urvasi Urvasi” is a Tamil-language song, which was later dubbed into Telugu and Hindi composed by musical maestro A.R. Rahman for the 1994 film “Kadhalan”. The Hindi version of the “Kadhalan” soundtrack is called “Humse Hai Muqabala”. It inspired the title of Rajsirpy’s 1996 film “Take It Easy Urvasi”.
The 53-year-old star has become very active on social media lately. He has been giving his fans a sneak peek into his personal life, work schedules and fitness regime.
The actor, who was last seen in “Bharat”, is currently shooting for “Dabangg 3”. Salman Khan will also be sharing screen with actress Alia Bhatt in “Inshallah”.
