Amitabh Bachchan Sings The National Anthem On Republic Day


It was the perfect Republic Day gift for his fans. Amitabh Bachchan delighted and surprised Twitter users today by posting a video that shows him singing the National Anthem at Jorasanko, Thakur Badi, that was once the residence of Rabindranath Tagore in Kolkata.

According to a report, the actor claimed that he would not be participating in the Republic Day Parade because he would be promoting his much-awaited film 'Shamitabh' in Kolkata. However his rich rendition has gained a lot of attention. Bachchan also tweeted that his rendition of Jana Gana Mana would air on TV and radio, and even possibly feature as part of the parade today.

Many fans wished Bachchan a Happy Republic Day.
