On the day of release of his film “102 Not Out”, Amitabh Bachchan shared the song Waqt Ne Kiya Kya Haseen Sitam -- rendition of the 60’s hit song by the same name that was originally sung by Geeta Dutt.
As the movie hits theatres today, the song that has continued to live in our hearts was given a new lease of life as Amitabh crooned the melodious number, packaging it for the new generation. The film directed by Umesh Shukla, has Amitabh playing a 102-year-old father to Rishi Kapoor’s 65-year-old character. Amitabh and Rishi will be seen together on screen after a gap of 27 years. They play a father-son duo in the film that celebrates old age and life.
Sharing the song on Twitter, Amitabh wrote: “One of my most favourite songs! Presenting to you, #SDBurman’s classic, #WaqtNeKiyaKyaHaseenSitam in my voice. Because some tunes should never be forgotten! http://bit.ly/WaqtNeKiyaKyaHaseenSitam-Song … @chintskap @rovinmusic @umeshkshukla @JimitTrivedi06 @saregamaglobal @SonyPicsIndia.”
