From the Khans - Aamir, Shah Rukh and Saif Ali - to leading ladies like Madhuri Dixit, Vidya Balan and Rani Mukerji, as many as 20 screen stars have united for a special title track for unique movie "Bombay Talkies (2013)", which celebrates 100 years of Indian cinema.
The song, titled "Apna Bombay talkies", has been choreographed by Vaibhavi Merchant.
Others who will feature in the song are Priyanka Chopra, Farhan Akhtar, Shahid Kapoor, Ranveer Singh, Ranbir Kapoor, Imran Khan, Sonam Kapoor and Deepika Padukone, Anil Kapoor, Sridevi, Akshay Kumar, Karisma Kapoor and Juhi Chawla.
Around 20 singers have also come together to lend their voices for the actors, said a source.
"For the first time, 20 singers will be part of the same song. The title track has been sung by some of the most reputed singers in the industry. And the interesting part about this is that the singers have recorded for those actors whom they generally do the playback singing for in their movies," the source added.
Some prominent singers, who have sung the track, are Sunidhi Chauhan, Shaan, Kavita Krishnamurthy, S.P. Balasubramaniam, Abhijeet, Kumar Sanu, Alka Yagnik, Mohit Chauhan, Sonu Nigam, Sudesh Bhonsle, Shreya Ghosal, Shilpa Rao, Udit Narayan, KK and Sukhwinder Singh.
The source said: "Vaibhavi has beautifully choreographed this number. There was a strict dress code for all the actors. All the men had to wear black tuxedos and the women wore gold outfits, designed by their own stylists. The song took over a month to be shot entirely as all the actors have independently shot for their parts."
"Bombay Talkies (2013)" is an amalgamation of four short films by four filmmakers - Zoya Akhtar, Anurag Kashyap, Dibaker Banerjee and Karan Johar. The movie releases May 3 and it will also be screened at Cannes film fest this year.

I have no clue why Bollywood keeps promoting "100 years of Indian Cinema". I agree it's been 100 years of Hindi Cinema, but not Indian. Plus, if they want to promote "Indian" cinema anyway, where are actors/directors/singers/choreographers and others from the other film industries of India? I'm sure the "Indian" film industry isn't only about Bollywood. I hope Bollywood starts promoting itself, more as Hindi cinema than Indian Cinema. That'll make me respect it a notch more than I do now.
Remember Bollywood, India is a country made up of 22 official languages and numerous other ones. Hindi isn't the only one. The same way Indian Film Industry is made up of numerous film industries, not only Bollywood.
That aside, I'm curious to see how Bombay Talkies turns out to be. :)
