Music takes one closer to God: Big B
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.
