When the much talked about BOMBAY TALKIES song 'Apna Bombay Talkies' was released, there were huge speculations as to why the iconic song doesn't feature the veteran superstars and divas, which marks the celebration of 100 years of Indian Cinema. The song only highlighted the contemporary actors and stars. Putting all the speculations to rest, let us tell you that the said song is approximately 8 minutes...However the makers have only released the second half till now which is spanning over 4 minutes approx.
However, the makers have kept a surprise element for the audiences where the first half of the song has many yesteryear celebrities like Shatrugan Sinha, Amitabh Bachchan, Waheeda Rehman, Nutan, Tanuja, Zeenat Aman, Prithviraj Kapoor, Nargis Dutt, Sunit Dutt, Madhubala, Praveen Babi, Rishi Kapoor, Hema Malini, Rekha to name a few....
This part of the song is in Black and White. Basically, brief portions of their films have been picked up and have been collated on VFX. So, it seems they are lip singing the song.
The 8 minute song will project the sea of Bollywood celebrities coming together to mark this 100 year celebration of Indian Cinema
Confirms producer, Ashi Dua 'The song took 3 - 4 months to be made. It has come out beautifully. A lot of hardwork was put in by both Amit Trivedi and Vaibhavi Merchant for this song. We have used clippings from a lot of iconic films like SHOLAY, PYAASA, AMAR AKBAR ANTHONY, MUGAL-E- AZAM to name a few.'
