Despite calls for bans and cross-border tensions, Pakistani singers Rahat Fateh Ali Khan and Atif Aslam continue to be hot favourites across the border and it comes as no surprise that the two will be lending their vocals to Vipul Shah’s upcoming Namaste England starring Arjun Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra.
Speaking to the Mumbai Mirror, the composer of the film’s music Mannan Shaah said, “Atif was always my first choice for Tere Liye. I adore his voice and he’s sung a quintessential romantic song. Javed sahab has written a wonderful song and it’s one of his personal favourites too,” said t
The video of the song has already been shot in London.
Speaking on the song sung by Rahat, Mannan remarked, “It’s sheer pleasure to have recorded Tu Meri Main Tera with Rahat sahab, I’ve always been a big fan of his voice.”
“We have tried a unique style which Rahat sahab has also explored for the first time. He was excited about singing something so new and fresh,” he added.
Namaste England which is scheduled to hit theatres October 19 is an installment of the Akshay Kumar-Katrina Kaif starrer Namaste London. Rahat had also recorded Namaste London’s iconic romantic number, Main Jahaan Rahoon which continues to be one of Bollywood’s most memorable chartbusters.
