After giving his voice to Hanuman Chalisa, megastar Amitabh Bachchan is now all set to recite Bhagwad Gita. Before there is any confusion, we must clarify that this Bhagwad Gita is the name of his late father, the famous poet Dr. Harivansh Rai Bachchan's compilation and not the holy book of the same name. Amitabh believes that Bhagwad Gita is one of the unknown works of his late father and that is why he has chosen it to pay a tribute to his genius.

As per our sources, Bachchan's favourite music director, Aadesh Shrivastava, is already working on the tunes of Bhagwad Gita and discussing the same with the megastar. An interesting piece of news disclosed by Aadesh is that despite working with Amitabh on numerous occasions, he has never seen him as excited over a project as he is about Bhagwad Gita. He does add that this time around the challenge is greater than the usual because the tunes are going be even more raag based than for Hanuman Chalisa and he will make Bachchan sing accordingly.

While on Hanuman Chalisa, Aadesh Shrivastava will launch his music label with Amitabh Bachchan's classical recitation of the forty 'chaupais' of the same.
