Actor Abhishek Bachchan says his father Amitabh Bachchan is a tad nervous about making his debut as a commentator for the India-Pakistan match during the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 which will be held in Adelaide on February 15.

Big B will take on the commentator’s role alongside stalwarts of the cricket-commentary world Harsha Bhogle and Kapil Dev as part of promotion of his recently released film SHAMITABH.
Abhishek, who is also the producer of SHAMITABH, was present at an event when he was asked how excited he is about senior Bachchan’s commentary during the World Cup. He said: ”I think it’s a great concept and that’s the least you can expect from R. Balki (SHAMITABH director R. Balakrishnan). When we had this discussion in the marketing meetings, I thought it was a brilliant concept.”
The junior Bachchan says his globally known father has ‘the greatest voice on earth’.
”To hear him commenting on the match should be a lot of fun and I’ve seen some the rehearsals they have been doing. He has been working hard and he is very nervous, but I think it’ll be very exciting,” said Abhishek, who’s a sports enthusiast himself.
SHAMITABH, which released on Feb 6, also starred southern star Dhanush and debutante Akshara Haasan in pivotal roles.[IANS]
