"None Other Than Mr Bachchan Could Have Done Vocal Justice To Its Lyrics," Says Shoojit Sircar On TheIr Mother's Day  Tribute Rendition
"It is not the number of ‘years’ that count, but the number of ‘moments’ you spend with your mom". Though one single day is not enough to celebrate them, the date of Mother’s Day gives the complacent ones amongst us the perfect chance to acknowledge our moms! And when you have the legacies of Amitabh Bachchan and Shoojit Sircar coming together for a beautiful tribute, trust them to leave you speechless! You can catch this song exclusively on 9XM, 9X Jalwa and 9X Tashan all day long on May 11 and 12. It has been on air, since yesterday.

After tugging on our emotional strings with the heart-warming Piku and PINK, Amitabh Bachchan  and Shoojit Sircar have come together to render a sweet accolade for Mother’s Day! The rendition is titled Maa.


The special montage video, with music by Anuj Garg and lyrics by Puneet Sharma, is a poignant homage to our mothers, with rendition of the stirring lines in the Bachchan baritone!

Director Shoojit Sircar speaks on the idea behind the video and working with Mr Bachchan again for such a moving subject, “This video is not just for those who have lost their mothers, but also those who are fortunate enough to still be in their mom’s shadows. The idea first came to me through music. Anuj pitched the musical piece to me, as a special birthday surprise for his wife, on behalf of his small son Yajat Garg, who incidentally is the child’s voice in the video! I thought of making a montage video for mothers, as the music really moved me, and I felt none other than Mr Bachchan could do vocal justice to the lyrics. So I initially sent him small video clips along with the photo of him with his mother the late Shri Teji Bachchan, asking his reaction. He immediately responded saying it was a great idea and agreed to do it! For me it was a powerful moment to shape a tribute which speaks from a child’s point of view as well as a person with decades of life gone by. No matter the age, we feel our mother’s presence all the time.”


Well trust this exceptional duo to remind us yet again to step back and cherish what we have. While we hold back our tears and go hug our mothers, check out the video here!
