Amitabh Bachchan Will Sing National Anthem in India v Pakistan WT20 Game to be held on 19th March at Eden Gardens Kolkata. From Pakistan side classical singer Shafaqat Amanat Ali will render the Pakistani national anthem.
There is no doubt that Amitabh Bachchan is our national treasure and is equally famous outside of India. Apart from his acting skills, he is also known for his perfect diction of Hindi language, deep voice and singing songs now and then in his movies. Big B even has a music album to his credit.
Last year during the India-Pakistan game in ICC World Cup 2015, Amitabh Bachan was a guest commentator on the Hindi commentary team. He commentated on that match alongside Kapil Dev, Aakash Chopra and Shoaib Akhtar. And this is not the first time that Amitabh Bachan will be seen singing the National Anthem.
India v Pakistan WT20 Game
The WT20 clash between India and Pakistan was originally suppose to happen in Dharamshala, Himachal Pradesh. However, due to the inability of the state government to provide security cover during the match, the game had to be shifted to Eden Garden in Kolkata.
India has never lost a World Cup game against Pakistan and they would be looking to bounce back after a shocking defeat at the hands of New Zealand in the tournament opener. Pakistan will be hoping that it’s batting side will turn up at Eden Garden as the bowling looks sharp with the return of Mohammed Amir who is bowling fast and troubled all Indian batsman in the recently concluded Asia Cup.
Continuing the trend which started from last years ICC World Cup, Star Sports is out with a new ad campaign for this India v Pakistan WT20 Game as well.
