Sarkar 3: Amitabh Bachchan lends his voice for Ganpati Aarti song in the movie


Sarkar 3 is full of anger and we have seen in the trailer, but another highlight of Sarkar 3 is a soulful Ganpati aarti, rendered by Big B himself. Shot on a Mumbai beach, the track, set during Ganpati visarjan, features a larger-than-life multi-headed idol of the elephant God. We have heard this aarti every time during the Ganesh festival or one other occasions, but hearing it in Sr Bachchan’s baritone gives you a lot of goosebumps. Plus, the video has been shot beautifully. So kudos to the director of photography and the cinematography team for doing a pretty good job.

Talking about the song, Mr. Bachchan’s raw and powerful voice is certainly one of the major highlights. Amongst several Ganesh aartis sung till date, Big B’s voice gives a refreshing feel to it. The heaviness in his voice surely adds to the thrill.

Apart from Amitabh, Sarkar 3 has an ensemble cast which includes Amit Sadh, Yami Gautam, Manoj Bajpayee, Jackie Shroff and Ronit Roy in the lead roles. The movie is slated to release on May 12, 2017.
