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.

  • 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.
