Thugs Of Hindostan is one of the most-anticipated films of the year and with its release just round the corner, we bring you one more reason to watch the film. Amitabh Bachchan has sung a soulful lullaby for the movie, which highlights his character Khudabaksh’s relationship with his daughter Zafira, played by Fatima Sana Shaikh.
Khudabaksh is the father figure in Zafira’s life and has vowed to protect her at any cost. Though it has not been revealed yet what happens to Zafira’s parents that compels her to be looked after and mentored by Khudabaksh, we feel that it is the most pivotal point in the script that triggers every plot.
Director Vijay Krishna Acharya wanted to show the beautiful father-daughter like relationship between the two and decided to add a moment of vulnerability between them. Khudabaksh will be seen trying to make Zafira, who fights the brutal memories of her past, sleep by singing this lullaby. Amitabh Bachchan got so moved while filming the scene that he decided to sing the lullaby himself.
Amitabh Bachchan says, “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 everyday that you get to sing one. 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 Adi to put this in the album. I’m sure he will do it because it’s turned out to be a beautiful song.” The lullaby has been composed by Ajay-Atul and Amitabh Bhattacharya has penned its heart-touching lyrics.
