One of the highlights of the epically good soundtrack for Sujoy Ghosh’s upcoming Kahaani was Amitabh Bachchan singing ‘Ekla Cholo Re’-Rabindranath Tagore’s epic poem in Bengali. About his performance on the song the director said, “Bachchan Saab sang Ekla Cholo like a dream. He sang it better than any Bengali singer I’ve heard. You’ve no idea how much his singing has added to the film.”
Adding, “Ekla Cholo is about a human’s solitary journey through life. And that’s what Vidya’s character in Kahaani does. Vidya seemed to grasp the nuances of Big B’s rendition and put them in her character.”
