New Delhi: Bollywood icon Amitabh Bachchan is now gearing up to mark his debut as a music composer for director R Balki’s psychological thriller ‘Chup’. Talking about this, director R Balki said, “It all happened very impromptu. I had asked Amitji to see the movie (‘Chup’). After seeing it, he called me over and he played me a tune on his piano and said that’s what the movie and the characters made him feel. He was very touched. I was ecstatic. I asked him if I could use the tune and he immediately gifted it to the movie. Today ‘Chup’ is the first film that has got Amitji’s official composition as the score for the credits.”
