Guys, get ready to have your minds blown away during the upcoming cricket World Cup. The series kick-starts from February 14th and team India is currently gearing up to bring the cup back home. On February 15, during the India v/s Pakistan match in Adelaide, B-town legend Amitabh Bachchan will be making his debut as a commentator. Yes, that’s right! Big B will be will be doing the commentary with stalwarts of the cricket-commentary world, Harsha Bhogle and Kapil Dev. Reportedly, it’s a part of an integration between the broadcast channel, Star Sports and the makers of Big B’s forthcoming film, Shamitabh.
Talking about this unique promotional activity, the film’s directors, R. Balki told a leading daily:
Mr Bachchan’s voice is the star of my film, Shamitabh. The plot revolves around the baritone. I personally feel, and there are millions who will agree with me, that there is nothing that Mr Bachchan’s voice can’t do. He has done voiceovers in many feature films and has also lent his voice to documentaries and social causes. The one thing that he hadn’t done was cricket commentary.
Considering every India v/s Pakistan match brings a truckload of thrill along with it, Mr. Bachchan’s commentary is only going to up the excitement level all the more. SO EXCITED! *Does a jig*
