Another Instagram user wrote, "The little boy is watching you in awe, the way the rest of us look at you now! @hrithik roshan too cute."
Amitabh Bachchan played the title role in Mr Natwarlal which also stars Rekha and Amjad Khan in pivotal roles. The actor lent his voice to a song for the first time in this film, and it became a rage with kids with its intriguing picturization and melodious composition.
Earlier, in an interview with Planet Bollywood, music composer Rajesh Roshan had revealed how he got Amitabh Bachchan to make his singing debut with Mr Natwarlal. Roshan was quoted as saying, "I didn't need to convince him, actually. He was standing on one foot to sing this song. And at Mehboob Studios, the shift started at 9 and I reached at 10.30. I saw there was a car parked and I felt that this must be Bachchan Sahab. I went upstairs and I saw that Bachchan Sahab, in a half sleeves striped shirt, white pants, white shoes was singing his song. He looked at me and nodded and that's it. I also did not go close, thinking that if I spoil his mood, he'll run away... And, when he sang one line, the recordist Robin Chatterjee Sahab, when he heard his voice, kept his hands on my shoulder and said, 'I've heard a lot of voices, but nothing like this one."
