Ranveer Singh has kickstarted a craze for rap in Bollywood and the next to follow his footsteps is none other than the Shahenshah of the Hindi film industry, Amitabh Bachchan. In his upcoming film 'Badla', the veteran actor will rap in a song titled 'Aukaat'. A source close to the development said, “The aim is to set the tone for the thriller with some hard hitting lyrics. The track also reflects the current mood and angst of society.”
Director Sujoy Ghosh said Bachchan's baritone blends perfectly with the rap. He said, “Bachchan sir has elevated the vibe of the video. It presents him in an uber-cool avatar. He rapped effortlessly.” Music for the track is composed by Clinton Cerejo and is choreographed by Bosco-Caesar. The film is a revenge thriller that marks the reunion of Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu after their hit 2016 courtroom drama 'Pink'.
The movie also stars Manav Kaul and Amrita Singh in pivotal roles. The film is produced by Shah Rukh Khan under his banner Red Chillies Entertainment, and he is expected to make a cameo in the film. 'Badla' is set to hit the screens on March 8.
