Bollywood actor Amitabh Bachchan, who is playing a ghost in his next release


, has lent his baritone voice to two songs in the film and is planning to sing for another movie



Talking about his singing talent which was evident in films like Don and Lawaaris, the Big B said "when filmmakers ask me to sing, I do."

Asked how he felt about singing, he said on a humourous note "mera gala baith gaya hai gaate gaate" (my throat is sore singing songs).

He also said that around July-August he was planning to go on a tour which would cover performances across the Western Hemisphere and next year in the Far East.

Bachchan was speaking on the sidelines of a function organised by the International Indian Film Academy.

The actor, who is the brand ambassador for the IDEA IIFA 2008 Awards, started the voting process by casting the first vote for the award nominations.

Speaking about the awards, Bachchan said "this was a brilliant way of taking our films, culture, values to the world".

He said it was still not decided if he was going to perform at the awards ceremony.
