Amitabh Bachchan will reprise his iconic dance My Name Is Anthony Gonsalves from Amar Akbar Anthony (1977) for Rohit Shetty's forthcoming film Bol Bachchan. Big B will get jiggy for the title track of Rohit Shetty's action comedy along with son Abhishek Bachchan and Ajay Devgn in the film.
The song from Manmohan Desai's film had Amitabh Bachchan popping out of a huge Easter egg -- the same will be replicated for this project as well. Apart from My Name is Anthony Gonsalves, the track will include Big B's well-known dialogues.
The veteran actor is slated to shoot for the song from May 9 to 12 at Film City in Mumbai. The gigantic Easter egg is being recreated by set designer Narendra Rahurikar for the shoot.
A source said, "Though the film does not feature him but Abhishek Bachchan, he has been clued into the story line of the project. When director Rohit Shetty made him hear the title track, he liked it tremendously and instantly agreed to feature in the title song. Last week, Big B rendered the vocals for the track penned by Sajid Farhad. It was recorded by Himesh Reshammiya who is scoring the music. Abhishek Bachchan and Ajay Devgn have also lent their voice to the track.
The song will have Amitabh Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan dancing together again after the Kajra Re track in Bunty Aur Babli (2005). The duo's steps are being choreographed by Chinni Prakash.
Big B's spokesperson confirmed, "He will be shooting for the song."
