When Chinni Prakash started shooting the title track of Bol Bachchan with Amitabh Bachchan, Ajay Devgn and Abhishek Bachchan at Mumbai's Film City Studios last week, he was pleasantly surprised to see Bachchan's passion for his work. "The last time I had choreographed dance moves for him, it was for 'Jumma Chumma De De' for Hum. At that time he would rehearse ten times and watch me twenty times before he faced the camera and I was surprised to see that he still follows the same rule. Watching him do so many rehearsals, Ajay and Abhishek had no choice but to follow suit!" laughed Prakash, adding that the star would be on the sets by eleven in the morning and had to be told to go to his van for lunch, and when the shoot was over had to be gently reminded that it was time to go home.
The fact that Big B rehearsed so many times despite re-creating his iconic steps and moves from his old famous hits like 'My Name is Anthony Gonsalves', and songs from Namak Halal, Namak Haram, Coolie etc! shows the perfectionist that he is. "I put in whatever I could from his old films into this single song. The moves will be mostly desi combined with rap and hip hop and there are 150 female dancers in the backdrop," says the choreographer of the five minute song, which will roll in the beginning of the film.
Amitabh Bachchan has also lent his voice for the track and the song which will also feature some of his dialogues from his films. It's also the first time that Big B will be seen in a song with Ajay Devgn and the song also marks the return of the father son duo after the hit 'Kajra Re' back in 2005. Abhishek Bachchan will sing a few lines in the track as well.
Himesh Reshammiya has composed the music for the track which was shot on a lavish set. A Fox Star Studios presentation, Bol Bachchan is produced by Shree Ashtavinayak LFS Infra Ltd and Ajay Devgn Ffilms and directed by Rohit Shetty. The comic caper also has Asin and Prachi Desai and releases on July 6 worldwide.
