Mika told a newspaper: "You can imagine my surprise when Bappi Lahiri told me about it. I nearly jumped with joy. I was finally getting the chance to sing for Amitabh Bachchan."
Big B even blogged about the Kammo song, saying Mika has a unique voice.
"I am one of the first singers to be mentioned and it is a matter of pride for me. It was sort of a New Year resolution that this year somehow or other other, I want to sing for Amitabh Bachchan. I felt intuitively that it would happen this year and it actually did", says Mika.
Mika says he usually connects with Big B through sms. "i do text him once in a while and there is always a prompt reply. Usually, I stay away from music directors and actors after a recording, but with him it is different. Whenever I perform live for shows in India, or abroad, I always include medleys of Bachchan Sr's songs. It was a high for me to sing the Kammo song for the superstar."
Besides the Kammo song, the report says, Mika has pinned hopes on "Chinta ta ta " in Rowdy Rathore.
"I have also sung a qawwali number Teri Aankhon me in Teri Meri Kahani", says Mika.
