India Vs Pakistan: Amitabh Bachchan, Shafqat Amanat Ali to sing national anthem before epic battle

News Agencies | Updated on: 14 February 2017, 5:59 IST

Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan will sing the National Anthem before the start of the marquee India-Pakistan World Twenty20 cricket match at the Eden Gardens on March 19.

Bachchan has confirmed the development by retweeting a post in his official Twitter handle while sources in the Cricket Association of Bengal today said this was an effort by its president Sourav Ganguly.

"The president was involved and the plan was on for a long time," CAB sources said.

While the 'Big B' will sing the National Anthem in his signature baritone, Pakistan will also make their presence felt with classical singer Shafqat Amanat Ali who is slated to sing the Pakistani National Anthem.
