There doesn’t seem to be anything that legendary Amitabh Bachchan can’t do. Having conquered the film industry, the actor will now set his feet into the cricket world, and lend his voice to commentate one of this year’s Cricket World Cup matches.

Currently in the midst of preparing for his commentating debut on 15th February during the India-Pakistan match,NDTVreported the actor explaining, “I am excited about the live commentary and I will be joined by Harsha Bhogle and Kapil Dev. I am taking tips from them and getting all the ‘mid-off and mid-on’ right.”

The whole idea for Bachchan to get involved in this actually comes from director R Balki, in order to promote their upcoming film ‘Shamitabh’. “This is all Balki’s decision as there is an integration between sports broadcasters and the makers of ‘Shamitabh’,” the actor added.

The film plays homage to Bachchan’s voice, and what better way to promote it. also starring Dhanush and Akshara Hassan, ‘Shamitabh’ is set to hit the silver screens on 6th October.
