HT City takes a look at Bollywood actors who are singing in upcoming films
Though Akki admits to not being a good singer, he will lend his voice once again in Housefull 2. “A song in the film describes Akshay’s character, so I thought why not let Akshay sing it as he is a good singer,” says Sajid Khan, director of the film. Akki has sung in Singh is Kinng with Snoop Dogg and Khatta Meetha previously.
Six years after he crooned the title track of Bluffmaster for filmmaker Rohan Sippy, actor Abhishek Bachchan has sung a rap number for Sippy’s Dum Maaro Dum. The actor tweeted about the experience, “Back in the studio after 6 yrs with chuck masta Sippy. Have no idea why he’s convinced that I can sing!! But Pritam’s killing it!!
After crooning Aati Kya Khandala in Ghulam 12 years ago, Aamir Khan will once again lend his vocals for Dhoom 3. Music composer Pritam Chakraborty is working hard on a tune to please Aamir. "I am working with Aamir for the first time, so I have to give my full attention to this theme song for Aamir’s villainous character," he says.
Katrina will make her singing debut in Yash Raj’s Mere Brother Ki Dulhan. Although Kat was reluctant, her co-star Ali Zafar, who is singing three songs in the film, convinced her for it. The film’s music composer Sohail Sen confirmed that Kat would be singing a song in the film, the details of which will be finalised later.
