The next film of Amitabh Bachchan is titled ‘Shamitabh’ and is scheduled to be released in February 2015. After its first poster, the first song of the film has now been released and this first look is sure to stir the curiosity of film lovers and Bachchan fans.

It shows the great Big B singing this song titled ‘Piddly si baatein’ in a washroom while sitting on a commode, fully clothed. The megastar is wearing a white blazer with blue faded denims and his full head of hair and grown beard has lent a touch of wildness to his dignified appearance. He uses the hand shower as his makeshift microphone as he croons the song.

Bachchan has lent his own voice to the two and a half minute long foot tapping number. He has previously sung in films like ‘Don’, ‘Kahaani’, ‘Buddha hoga tera baap’ and ‘Bol Bachchan’. This ‘Piddly’ song has been written by Swanand Kirkire and the music has been composed by Illyaraja. It is a captivating number.

Bachchan posted in his Twitter account, “#Shamitabh... Okay here it is... PIDDLY SONG...!! Enjoy,” along with the link for the song. It bagged 173 likes on YouTube within an hour of its release. Bachchan had released the first audio poster of the film last week which revealed the full cast.

There has been a buzz around this film since it was announced. The project is helmed by R Balki who has previously gifted the audience with films like ‘Paa’ and ‘Cheeni kum’ with Bachchan. So, the story is sure to be something quite out of the ordinary. Speculations ran high regarding the unusual name of the film.

Director Balki had confirmed, "Yes, we've finally titled the film 'Shamitabh', as in 'Sh' before Amitabh. It is the name of a character in the film. We're half way through our shoot and we've enjoyed every bit of our journey so far."

In addition to Big B, Dhanush, who made his debut in Bollywood with ‘Ranjhanaa’ is also playing a lead role. According to rumours, the role was first thought to be offered to Shahrukh Khan but was later offered to Dhanush. The name has been explained by the ‘sh’ of Dhanush before Amitabh. In the film, Amitabh lends his voice to a junior deaf and mute artist played by Dhanush. Akshara, the younger daughter of Kamal Hasaan is playing the female lead in the film.
