Amitabh Bachchan in a statement said, “The song tells you the depth of the bond that Zafira and Khudabaksh share. I was most excited to sing this lullaby because it is not every day that you get to sing one”.
While talking about the lullaby Amitabh Bachchan further added, “The lyrics are beautiful and the composition highlights the emotional journey of these two characters who have an incredible father-daughter relationship. I have been telling Aditya (Chopra) to put this in the album. I’m sure he will do it because it’s turned out to be a beautiful song”.
According to the film source, “Amitabh Bachchan wanted to show the deep trust, the love and the respect that Zafira has for Khudabaksh and decided to add a moment of vulnerability between the two. Khudabaksh will be seen protecting Zafira at every step and they are inseparable souls. Mr. Bachchan was so kicked about singing this lullaby that he decided to record it himself and that too at his home! The initial idea was to make a short lullaby but Mr. Bachchan went a step further and converted it into a song. He is insisting that Aditya (Chopra) puts it into the album”.
The big budget “Thugs of Hindostan” is all set to release on 8th November. What excites the film fans is that the two big names of Bollywood Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan are sharing screen for the first time. Directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya, film is set in 1795 British India period.
