Mumbai: Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan will lend his famous baritone for the voice over in Shah Rukh Khan’s magnum opus ‘RA.One’.
Apparently, after roping in Tamil superstar Rajinikanth, SRK approached Big B, who readily agreed to be a part of the project.
Talking to a daily, a source said, “SRK is doing all that he can to make ‘RA.One’ a success. This is his dream project. First he got his good friends Sanjay Dutt and Priyanka Chopra to do cameos. Then SRK wanted Rajinikanth to be a part of his project. People thought it was crazy since Rajini sir was still recuperating from his illness. But Rajini sir, despite his health issues, agreed to come to Mumbai and shoot for the scene. After the shoot, everyone thought that the film was finally complete. Obviously SRK had other plans. He has now convinced Amitabh Bachchan to lend his voice to ‘RA.One’.”
“SRK wants Big B to do the voiceover for an extremely important sequence in the film. Anubhav Sinha, the director was also keen on having someone to do the voiceover. There is immense respect between SRK and Amitji. The dubbing will take place at a suburban studio on Thursday,” added the source.
When contacted, ‘RA.One’ directed Anubhav Sinha confirmed the news and added, “Amitji has been kind enough. We needed someone special to do this voiceover in the film. Also, the project will now get blessings from the people we have loved and respected for years. God is kind to me. I had SRK, Arjun Rampal, Kareena Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra and Sanjay Dutt. Now I even have Rajinikanth sir and Mr Amitabh Bachchan in my film. I feel blessed.”
