Ali shows his respect to Sonu


Ali Zafar started his career as a singer, and after having a successful run in he managed to make his mark as an actor in Bollywood. He sang for his film ‘Mere brother ki dulhan’ besides composing, writing and singing for London, Paris, New York. He also released his latest sufi album “Jhoom” through YRF records. Lately, Ali made an exception for his film Chashme Baddoor. As the story goes, the title track for Chasme baddoor was recorded in Sonu Nigam’s voice before the film started and was initially meant for opening credits. But later David Dhawan decided to use that song entirely on Ali’s character “Sid”, in the film that too in a romantic angle. When Ali heard the track, he suggested to maintain Sonu’s voice rather than dubbing it for himself as he admired and respected the singer a lot and would feel honored to have him sing for him in the film and instead would render a reprise version in his voice for the album, besides other songs in the film. This would be interesting to see. This reminds of the time when Mohammad Rafi did play back singing for Kishore Kumar for a song in the latter’s film.
