Mu­sic takes one closer to God: Big B

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment -

Vet­eran ac­tor Amitabh Bachchan (above), who has crooned sev­eral songs in­clud­ing Rang Baarse and Pid­dly, feels that the art of cre­at­ing mu­sic takes one closer to God.

In his ode to mu­si­cians, the 72-year-old Piku star, who is busy com­pos­ing and singing for a new TV show, said that artists are blessed.

“They that pos­sess the skills to be within notes and sounds in­de­pen­dent of any other in­put, are the blessed. We are not... Be­cause we are not the clos­est to the Almighty... We are not the clos­est be­cause we are dis­tanced from the cre­ative art of mak­ing mu­sic, or even mak­ing ef­fort in that di­rec­tion,” he wrote on his blog.

Ad­dress­ing mu­si­cians as the “su­pe­rior” race, Bachchan went on to share his long lived de­sire of learn­ing the art. “If ever I do get the op­por­tu­nity to learn the craft, I am ab­so­lutely cer­tain that its knowl­edge shall be con­strained by any kind of public ex­hi­bi­tion. Mu­si­cians are the su­pe­rior gifts from heaven. They must sleep well and live con­tent lives,” he added.
