A couple of days ago, we told you that Amitabh Bachchan has joined hands with the officials of Mumbai’s famous Siddhivinayak temple and recorded the Ganpati aarti in his deep baritone, the video for which was to be shot soon (Amitabh Bachchan Records Ganpati Aarti For Siddhivinayak Temple, Sept 2). Now, SpotboyE.com has got pictures from the shoot for you. Directed by Shoojit Sircar and produced by Ronnie Lahiri of Rising Sun Films, the set is as grand as it gets. While Big B looks serene in all white, Shoojit keeps a close watch on the shot through the monitor.
The Pink actor also took to Twitter to announce the same.
Big B recorded the aarti in late music composer Aadesh Srivastava’s studio. The music has been arranged by music director duo Rohan-Vinayak. It is still unclear whether Big B’s version of the aarti will be played inside the temple during the 11-day long festival. Ravi Jadhav, the Deputy Executive Officer of Siddhivinayak Trust was quoted as saying, “There was a plan to have Amitabh Bachchan record the aarti. But in the temple, the aarti is always sung live.”
Big B’s rendition of the aarti will be available on the Internet as well as on CDs. So go ahead and listen to mantras, Sukhkarta aarti and Shendur Laal Chadhayo aarti in the actor’s voice and immerse yourself in the devotion of Bappa.
