To promote his upcoming film "Shamitabh", acting legend Amitabh Bachchan will assume the role of a radio jockey to entertain his fans.

On Thursday, 5 February, fans can tune into 93.5 RED FM to listen to "All India Shamitabh Radio", which will be hosted by Big B himself. Bachchan will also chat with them over the phone.

"In an endeavour to bring our listeners closer to the legendary star, we planned this initiative with 'Shamitabh', which celebrates Bachchan's voice as the voice of the common man. Amitabh Bachchan is like an institution in himself, adored by people across age groups," Nisha Narayanan, COO of RED FM, said in a statement, IANS reports.

Bachchan had earlier, while recording some promotional bytes for the upcoming radio show, mentioned how complicated RJ'ing is.
