Amitabh Bachchan To Learn The Sitar and The Sarod

Mumbai:As the entire film industry is aware, Amitabh Bachchan is an extremely versatile actor. But there’s more to the 69-year old superstar of Bollywood. Unknown to many, AB Sr. composes music in his free time.

Now he wants to take his love for music one step further and wants to learn the sitar and the sarod. An avid blogger, Mr. Bachchan posted on his personal blog that he is in the process of acquiring a sitar and a sarod for himself so that he could “pull a few strings”. He also reminisced about one of his earliest movies, Abhimaan (1973) where he was photographed holding a sitar and the media refused to believe that he wasn’t able to play the instrument. Those media people can rest easy now that he is actually going to learn the instruments.
