20 Bollywood superstars in ‘Bombay Talkies’ Song: Photo

From the Khans – Aamir, Shah Rukh and Saif Ali – to leading ladies like Madhuri Dixit, Vidya Balan and Rani Mukerji, as many as 20 screen stars have united for a special title track for unique movie “Bombay Talkies”, which celebrates 100 years of Indian cinema.

The song, titled “Apna Bombay talkies”, has been choreographed by Vaibhavi Merchant.

Others who will feature in the song are Priyanka Chopra, Farhan Akhtar, Shahid Kapoor, Ranveer Singh, Ranbir Kapoor, Imran Khan, Sonam Kapoor and Deepika Padukone, Anil Kapoor, Sridevi, Akshay Kumar, Karisma Kapoor and Juhi Chawla. Unfortunately, Salman Khan and Hrithik Roshan don’t feature in the song.

Around 20 singers have also come together to lend their voices for the actors, said a source.

“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. And the interesting part about this is that the singers have recorded for those actors whom they generally do the playback singing for in their movies,” the source added.

Some prominent singers, who have sung the track, are Sunidhi Chauhan, Shaan, Kavita Krishnamurthy, S.P. Balasubramaniam, Abhijeet, Kumar Sanu, Alka Yagnik, Mohit Chauhan, Sonu Nigam, Sudesh Bhonsle, Shreya Ghosal, Shilpa Rao, Udit Narayan, KK and Sukhwinder Singh.

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

“Bombay Talkies” is an amalgamation of four short films by four filmmakers – Zoya Akhtar, Anurag Kashyap, Dibaker Banerjee and Karan Johar. The movie releases May 3 and it will also be screened at Cannes film fest this year.

  • And what my two favourite actors Salman and Hrithik are missing.Sad to see this.
    But great to see so many stars at one place…
    I think it will be a 10-15 min. song.

  • sad hrithik is missing
    but so glad SRK & SAK together again ,
    king khan is khantastic :))
    SAK is superb

    love them both and i wish if hrithik was there too

  • Salman Have no contribution in 100 years of bollywood
    ;so he is not in the film

    Wonder why hrithik is nt there,
    missing him

  • Wow.outstanding picture.so many superstars in one frame.missing Salman khan but the best thing is Aamir khan standing on the centre between Akshay and Srk otherwise Srk in centre must have spoiled the whole picture like Filmfare magazine.

  • Why would anyone want to notice small things lke this. Amir khan was crying to stand n centre so SRK being sportive allowed him. Now how come ranveer singh, shahid kapoor, sonam kapoor, imran khan and farhan akthar be called superstar. Is der no difference between star n superstar. It became like salman fans who has no difference between blockbuster and alltime blockbster.

  • @ Soroop: Without SK, even the tribute to Bomaby Artists will be disaster.

    For, ATBB you need ATBB Khan.

  • two of d biggest superstars of bollywood hrithik roshan n salman khan missing ??!!!! bt y ??? bollywood is incomplete widout hrithik n salman

  • @Nillesh. Who is SK ? Ohhh u mean sulaiman khan
    Sulaiman bhai in Eid + National holiday = 20 stars (only at night time coz there will lot of stars visible)
    Sulaiman bhai in non holiday = 20 flops + 20 flops = 40 flops.

  • This was offered to Salman but he declined. May be he does want to appear with certain self proclaim king or he is so humble that he does not want to appear n show off despite massive contribution (in terms of Blockbusters) towards industry. No clue why Hrithik is not there. HR n SK are actually the real megastars of bollywood in terms of popularity n stardom. Aamir is real class n a complete actor. It is useless to comments about self proclaimed king aka srk.

  • Wow!! Look at the eternal beauty madhuri dixit, what grace, what beauty, what elegance, what style, what feminism at this age! ‘Screen goddess’ indeed! She can be Only compared with sridevi. I dont think bollywood will ever get to see another SCREEN GODDESSes like madhuri or sridevi in the next 11 generations (though katrina,kareena, aish, vidya & others are extremely beautiful & talented, even they all combined together are no match for either MADS or SRI). Aamir is looking the best among all the males (here i am not including srk because we all know that srk comes under the ‘not male/not female’ category). Just One look at the FACE of our srk and we realise where our ancestors came from (aadmio ke poorvaj BANDAAR thei)!!

  • @NVS. Sharukh khan is half male and half female and still he have 2 kids. But ur father is proper male i guess but still he is cursed with u (shemale). Before questioning about others sexuality, look at urself first. Sorry im talking in behalf of my favourite actor SRK’s kids. What they would feel when they come across such cheap comment from cursed ppls like u.

  • Aamir looks coolness personified and Akshay looks like hes back to his very best from 2008 I would say. ;-)
    My life long Love Madhuri mmmwwwaaaahhhh Looking Elegant as always. :-)
    Wonderful picture Though Would have been more memorable and pleasing on the eye if Smeagol was not in the front row but somewhere in the back harrassing a young actress if Gauri allowed him but Im guessing Srk had a big hand in getting himself promoted to front row. :-(
    If dreams came true then the Front row should have been Aamir, Hrithik, Akshay and Salman. The 2 ladies between these hunks should be Sri Devi and my belived Madhuri. Now thats a portrait picture to stand the test of time and no Gollum creature called Srk will ever get near the front and ruin a once in a lifetime moment.

  • @beingsallufan My retarded srkian friend, comprehend that both Salman bhai and Hrithik declined their invitations to be a part of Bombay Talkies because they are fully focused on giving Bollywood its next 2 ATBBs in the form of K3 and Mental…! ;-) Now thats real dedication to their craft and it ensures Bollywoods starts of its 2nd century with an unanimous Double Century. ;-)
    Our King Srk though is craving attention of any kind has been rather reckless and has abandoned his driving duties aboard the express train called Chennai Depress. Oh dear oh dear how on earth will depressed bordering on suicide passengers like ‘soroop’, ‘g@y1 wetpants, ‘Damnnn…!…’ and ‘remotecontrol’ oh I forgot these two are the same person ever get home?
    Guess the aforementioned losers will have to sleep on the platform and to feel at home you lot will sing Srk classics to your hearts content. Nearby other passengers, cats, sewer rats, stray dogs, homeless will all run a hundred miles just to escape the melodious ‘saans’ being sung by heartless losers…! :-P

  • @ Soroop: Have u forgot: MPK, KKHH, HAHK, D2, Ready, No Entry, Partner. All of these collected more than any other actor’s highest grosiing film.

  • This writer must be the hater of srideviji…How come the writer dint know Srideviji is leading lady around 11years in bollywood film and 35years in indian cinema industries. tis writer busket only said name of md.vb and rani as a leading lady. are you blind??? IDIOT! WRITER. (feel to give him tied slap awards)
