Mumbai: Amitabh Bachchan has crooned several songs including “Rang Baarse” and “Piddly”, and the megastar feels the art of creating music takes one closer to the God. In his ode to musicians, the 72-year-old “Piku” star, who is busy composing and singing for a new TV show, said that artistes’ are blessed.
“They that possess the skills to be within notes and sounds independent of any other input, are the blessed. We are not… Because we are not the closest to the Almighty… We are not the closest because we are distanced from the creative art of making music, or even making effort in that direction,” he wrote.
Addressing them as the “superior” race Bachchan went on to share his long lived desire of learning the art. “If ever I do get the opportunity to learn the craft, I am absolutely certain that its knowledge shall be constrained by any kind of public exhibition. Musicians are the superior gifts from heaven . They must sleep well and live content lives,” he said.
