Rishi Kapoor sings for the first time in '102 Not Out'

MUMBAI: Yes you heard it right! Not only will we hear the majestic baritone of Amitabh Bachchan as he sings for Badumbaaa in Umesh Shukla’s upcoming film 102 Not Out, but his co-star Rishi Kapoor too will be heard crooning for the first time in his career. Kapoor along with Amitabh Bachchan will be singing the song Badumbaaa which is a fun, lively foot tapping number that has also been composed by Bachchan.

During the last day of the shoot, the team was discussing possibilities of both the actors having a song in the film. The idea was later passed on to the stars, to which Bachchan instantly gave a nod, but Kapoor was apprehensive. But, on the insistence of director Umesh Shukla, he agreed on singing, only after rehearsals.

Umesh says, "When Rishiji came to the recording studio, he did the first rehearsal and after the first rehearsal itself he was surprised to discover his singing talent. We did not have to do many retakes as his first one time was perfect." 

Well, we are sure all his fans out there will be elated to see another facet of his multifaceted personality. Not only will we see the two superstars back after 27 years but also singing together.

A Sony Pictures Releasing International Presentation and worldwide distribution- 102 Not Out is produced by SPE Films India, Treetop Entertainment and Umesh Shukla’s Benchmark Pictures. The film releases worldwide on 4 May 2018.
