Amitabh Bachchan will soon be seen donning a new avatar for a TV ad. The actor will be performing as Raahat Raja in ad film directed by Nitesh Tiwari of Dangal fame. Amitabh has also sung for the ad.

This ad film for Navratna hair oil will be recreating the iconic song Sar Jo Tera Chakraye in an innovative 'nautanki style' with Amitabh playing a 'champiwala' in it, said a statement.

A source from the production team said: "It was astounding to see the liveliness that Bachchan sir brings to stage. With such a peppy song, the energy levels were very high during the shoot. We are very happy with how the film has turned out and whoever we have shown it has just loved it."

As Raahat Raja, Amitabh relives his classic funky dance moves as seen in songs like Kajra re, Jhoom barabar jhoom and Khaike paan Banaras wala, the source added.
