On Twitter this morning, Amitabh Bachchan treated his legions of fans with the first glimpse of his forthcoming film ‘Chehre’s majestic title track. Veteran producer Anand Pandit, who has been a fan of Bachchan’s oratorial skills from the time he brought to life the poetry of Sahir Ludhiyanvi and Javed Akhtar in classics like ‘Kabhi Kabhie’ and ‘Silsila,’ even spoke about the track.
In a black and white montage, layered with stunning VFX, Bachchan recites a stirring poem with the powerful punchline, “Jism chale jayenge, zinda rahenge chehre.”
Sharing the track on Twitter, Amitabh Bachchan tweeted, “T 4007 – Chehre title track : when words speak volumes .. #ChehreTitleTrack out now: https://youtu.be/EFQ07aGXHtc Watch #Chehre in theatres on 27th August. #FaceTheGame”

Talking about the title track of Chehre, Anand Pandit had said, “The poem is so well-written by Rumy Jafry and sums up the powerful theme of the film. The suspense and mysterious elements in the film all come together wonderfully in the score. In April this year, Vishal-Shekhar had recorded the orchestral rendition of the title track with 107 musicians in Prague. Shekhar Ravjiani has composed the tune beautifully. And now Amit ji has lent his matchless voice to add another dimension altogether to the track. He is a perfectionist and you just have to hear the title track to be mesmerised by every intonation, pause and emphasis. His voice was made for poetry.”
Chehre is a mystery-thriller directed by Rumy Jafry and stars Amitabh Bachchan, Emraan Hashmi, Annu Kapoor, Krystle D’Souza, Dhritiman Chatterjee, Raghubir Yadav, Siddhanth Kapoor and Rhea Chakraborty.
