I never dared to sing in front of Ilaiyaraaja: Big B

Megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who shared his experiences working with music composer Ilaiyaraaja, felicitated at a function here Monday for completing the music of his 1,000th film, said he never dared to sing in front of the maestro.

“I have never dared to sing in front of him because I found it very embarrassing. Every time I used to sit in a studio separately to record... I remember one occasion while doing Paa, where I had to sing a song with Raja saab in front of me. I can’t say how frightening it was,” Amitabh Bachchan told reporters during the music launch of Shamitabh.

Big B described Ilaiyaraaja as ‘a genius’. “It was amazing how he corrected me. Thanks for the opportunity.”

The megastar also shared his experiences on working with Ilaiyaraaja with Rajinikanth
and Kamal Haasan.
