MUMBAI: Navratna Oil, the ayurvedic therapeutic cool oil brand from the house of Emami has launched Amitabh Bachchan in a never seen avatar of an ‘acapella' singer.

In a brand new music video, Big B can be seen crooning to the iconic song ‘Sar jo tera chakraye’ from the film Pyaasa in an acapella style. Big B lent his baritone voice for this experimentation for the very first time in his entire illustrious career and has once again rewarded his fans with something to rejoice for.

Acapella is group or solo singing in choral style which is without instrumental accompaniment, where the background music is usually created by beats made by the human mouth, usually one linking to the other one, like hitting the floor, then the desk, then the wall to make a beat that goes together, while actually singing the song. Meaning “in chapel style” in Italian, acapella originated from religious music composed for use in chapels which, unlike large churches, had no organs to accompany the song.

Created by Leo Burnett Orchard and directed by Nitesh Tiwari of Dangal fame, the Navratna Acapella number sung by Big B has been digitally released on YouTube.

Emami director Harsha V Agarwal says, “The song and its portrayal of a barber offering relaxing champi has a very natural correlation with our brand Navratna which when applied for a head massage also offers instant relaxation from stress, tension, headaches and sleeplessness. It is almost as if the song had been written for Navratna only!”

Incidentally, the same song in a winning combination of Navratna and Bachchan as ‘Rahaat Raja’ created quite a stir last year in a TVC.

Tiwari adds, “The music format of acapella is growing in popularity among the young music lovers of today. We found that the rhythm of acapella style of singing has a very direct correlation with the rhythmic sounds and actions created by barbers while giving relaxing champis to their clients. Amitabh Bachchan, the brand ambassador, also got instantly enthusiastic on learning about this idea and promptly agreed to lend his voice to this experimentation. It has been a wonderful experience for all of us and we have released the music digitally to connect better with today’s consumers who are digitally active and also love Bollywood music.”

The Navratna portfolio consists of Navratna Oil, Navratna Xtra Thanda Oil, Navratna Almond Cool Oil and Navratna Cool Talc.
