B-town celebs come together for ‘Bombay Talkies’ title track

Mumbai: A host of Bollywood actors and industry veterans including A-listers like Shahrukh Khan, Aamir Khan, Kareena Kapoor, Vidya Balan, Sridevi and Madhuri Dixit will be seen together in a title track of 'Bombay Talkies', the anthology tribute to 100 years of Indian cinema.

The song will have all the three Khans – Aamir, Shah Rukh and Saif – in addition to Kareena, Vidya Balan, Rani Mukerji, Farhan Akhtar, Shahid Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra, Madhuri, Anil Kapoor, Sridevi, Akshay Kumar, Karisma Kapoor and Juhi Chawla, a statement issued here by the makers said.

Bollywood's young brigade–Ranveer Singh, Ranbir Kapoor, Imran Khan, Sonam Kapoor and Deepika Padukone – will also feature in it.

The song 'Apna Bombay Talkies' will have as many as 20 industry stalwarts and has been choreographed by Vaibhavi Merchant.

"Vaibhavi has beautifully choreographed this number.

There was a strict dress code for all the actors. All the men had to wear black tuxedos and the women wore gold outfits, designed by their own stylists," the statement said.

The song took over a month to be shot entirely as all the actors have independently shot for their parts.

Over 20 singers have lent their voices to the actors.

Some of the prominent singers are: Sunidhi Chauhan, Shaan, Kavita Krishnamoorthy, SP Balasubramaniam, Abhijeet, Kumar Sanu, Alka Yagnik, Mohit Chauhan, Sonu Nigam, Sudhesh Bhosle, Shreya Ghosal, Shilpa Rao, Udit Narayan and Sukhwinder Singh.

"For the first time, 20 singers will be part of the same song. The title track has been sung by some of the most reputed singers in the industry," the movie spokesperson said.

'Bombay Talkies' is an anthology of four short stories, each directed by a different filmmaker.

The film that celebrates 100 years of cinema, will for the first time have four top directors from Bollywood, Dibakar Banerjee, Karan Johar, Zoya Akhtar and Anurag Kashyap – directing four movies.
