Abhijeet has now made a comeback with a song from Ranbir’s upcoming film, Besharam. The track, titled ‘Dil ka jo haal hai’, is a ’90s-style duet which also features singer Shreya Ghosal. The singer reveals that it was director Abhinav Singh Kashyap’s and composer Lalit Pandit’s unanimous decision that he should sing the song. “They wanted a fresh, melodious song — something that has been missing from Bollywood in a long time,” says the 54-year-old.
Abhijeet also adds that his contribution to film music will not be forgotten. “Shah Rukh will not be remembered for songs like ‘Lungi dance’ or ‘Chammak challo’, but for his hits from films like Main Hoon Na (2004), Yes Boss and Chalte Chalte,” he says. He last sang for the actor in Om Shanti Om (2007).
