Megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who has
featured in a song "Phir se" by Amruta Fadnavis, wife of Maharashtra
Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, says he did the song not because she
is the wife of an influential person, but because she is a woman trying
to develop herself independently.
"I agreed to be a part of this song not because she is a wife of Maharashtra chief minister. I liked the fact that she wants to develop her skill and art as an independent woman, which is just amazing. And above all, it was difficult to say no to a woman," Amitabh said here.
On Wednesday, Amitabh launched the new single and its music video in Mumbai.
"She should get equal marks for her singing and performance in the song and I wish her all the luck for her future journey in this field," Big B added.
Talking about working with Amitabh Bachchan, Amruta said: "I hadn't thought I will be working with him. When I heard the song for the first time, I could only imagine him as a head of that music academy in song and when we approached him for it, he was kind enough to be part of the song and that is our privilege."
When asked whether CM Fadnavis liked the song, she replied, "He loved the song and the music. He is a super fan of Amitabh Bachchan, so he had to love the entire video"
The song is composed by Jeet Ganguli, arranged by Abhijit Vaghani, written by Rashmi Virag and the video is directed by Ahmed Khan. It is produced by T Series.
