The superstar creates a new record by singing the title track of his forthcoming film BBUDDAH-HOGA TERA BAAP in 'Acapella' style - a first ever in India!
For those who are new to the concept, Acapella music is a solo or a group vocal or singing without any instrumental sound. Interestingly, Music directors Vishal & Shekhar had been planning to do something unique with Mr. Bachchan since quite sometime and they came up with the idea of using the acapella style to create a memorable number for BBUDDAH. When the duo approached Mr. Bachchan with this suggestion, they were in for a pleasant surprise when the actor immediately agreed to do it!

Music director, Shekhar Ravjiani, elaborated, "We wanted to try something new with this song. We did the basic setup and then Mr. Bachchan replaced every track with his voice. He recreated the sounds of approximately 10 to 12 instruments, from drum to bass to the snare to the chorus. In a nut shell, he did everything required to make a song!"
A source from the film says, "Given Mr. Bachchan's multi-talented persona, it is no surprise that he took this challenge up very sportingly and was very excited about doing something new. He gave his best and the result is for everyone to see. Every sound you hear in the title track is created by Mr. Bachchan himself! This is the first time that the 'Acapella' style of singing has been used in Indian cinema and we owe it to Mr. Bachchan for introducing us to something so unique!"
Well, the powerhouse that he is, Mr. Bachchan raises the bar higher every single time he tries his hand at absolutely anything!
