Amitabh Bachchan’s voice is one of those rare ones, which when met with the right words, can create magic. That is exactly what happened at the Hindustan Times Leadership Summit when the megastar recited a poem from his latest movie Pink to a live audience on Friday.

Director Karan Johar, who was moderating the session, asked Bachchan to recite a work by his father, Harivansh Rai Bachchan. Bachchan, however, decided to recite the verse from Pink.

“This is written by a writer, Qazi, from the unit (of the film),” he said as he introduced the poem to the audience.

Here’s a transcript of the poem:

Tu khud ki khoj mein nikal
Tu kis liye hataash hai

Tu chal tere vajood ki

Samay ko bhi talaash hai

Jo tujh se lipti bediyaan
Samajh na inko vastra tu

Ye beriyaan pighaal ke

Bana le in ko shastra tu

Tu khud ki khoj mein nikal
Tu kis liye hataash hai

Tu chal tere vajood ki

Samay ko bhi talaash hai

Charitra jab pavitra hai
To kyun hai ye dasha teri

Ye paapiyon ko haq nahi

Ke lein pareeksha teri

Tu khud ki khoj mein nikal
Tu kis liye hataash hai

Tu chal tere vajood ki

Samay ko bhi talaash hai

Jalaa ke bhasm kar use
Jo kroorta ka jaal hai

Tu aarti ki lau nahi

Tu krodh ki mashaal hai

Tu khud ki khoj mein nikal
Tu kis liye hataash hai

Tu chal tere wajood ki

Samay ko bhi talaash hai

Chunar ura ke dhwaj bana
Gagan bhi kampkampaayega

Agar teri chunar giri

To ek bhukamp aayega

Tu khud ki khoj mein nikal
Tu kis liye hataash hai

Tu chal tere vajood ki

Samay ko bhi talaash hai
