Atif Aslam to Sing in upcoming Bollywood movie ‘Kismat Konnection’
Atif Aslam has aided stars like Emraan Hashmi (Woh Lamhe in Zeher), Saif Ali Khan (Pehli nazar in Race) to up their sex appeal with his soulful singing. But now the Pakistani crooner is planning to turn competitor. lready riding high on a popularity wave, thanks to chartbusters like Adaat from Kalyug and Bas Ek Pal’s Tere Bin, Aslam is now leafing through scripts. “I have already got offers from Tips, Mahesh and Mukesh Bhatt. I’m yet to accept any,” says the good-looking singer.
Athough he hasn’t had any formal training in acting, Aslam isn’t lacking in confidence when it comes to showing off his histrionics. “I believe that acting is natural and veteran actors like Aamir Khan and Shah Rukh Khan haven’t been to an acting school. Certain technicalities can be learned on the set itself,” he says. As far as finding inspiration is concerned, it’s King Khan that comes to Aslam’s mind. The singer is thrilled that the superstar happily accepted his latest album, Meri Kahani at an award function. When asked his favourites in the Bollywood music industry, he says, “A R Rahman and Sonu Nigam are just amazing”.
It’s great interacting and working with superstars; all this is a result of my hard work put in for the last few years. It feels nice being accepted,” Aslam says. He, however, doesn’t want to move base to Mumbai as all his friends and relatives are in Pakistan. “Though I end up spending half my time in India, I have no plans of settling here. I have got a lot of fans back home and my family lives there.” Aslam’s vocal prowess can be heard when Aziz Mirza’s Kismet Konnection releases later this year.
