Mumbai, Nov 14 (IANS) Amitabh Bachchan has lent his voice to quite a few film songs but now the megastar is singing along with classical maestro Rashid Khan for an album dedicated to the victims of the 26/11 terror attacks on Mumbai last year.

“Yes, Rashid Khan and I have sung together. The system of recording these days allows a lot of freedom to sing how one is comfortable. That’s how I managed it,” said Amitabh.

Titled “Sound Of Peace”, the project has been helmed by composer Aadesh Shrivastava.

Efforts are now on to get Ashutosh Gowariker to direct a video that will feature the Big B, Rashid Khan and Aadesh Shrivastava. Footage from the 26/11 attacks in Mumbai will be interspersed with scenes from 9/11 in the US and the London subway bombings of 2005.

Said Aadesh: “We initially planned to make this a Hindi-Urdu album in memory of the 26/11 victims. But we’ve now expanded it into a comment on global terrorism. Mr. Bachchan is now in the process of recording an English version of the peace song.”
