Actor Salman Khan has crooned for his films in the past, but he says that recording Hangover for Kick took him as long as three days.

The Dabangg actor says that composer Wajid was his guru and he just followed his instructions. "I have sung in Hello Brother and Wanted also. People around me have been asking me to sing a song in a film and my problem is I can't do it if anybody asks me to...it has to come naturally," Salman said.



Salman Khan found recording for Sajid Nadiadwala's directorial debut tough. "Singing in front of the mike is very difficult without any training. I am not a trained singer at all. Wajid used to sing in front of me, and I used to copy. My guru is Wajid," he added.

Salman, who stars in Kick with Jacqueline Fernandes, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Randeep Hooda says the song sounded "bad" once he recorded it. "Once it was complete, it was sounding very bad. But the composers were saying, 'It's superb, don't worry'. They were confident about their technicians and said the song will get refined and by the time it comes out, it's going to be 70 percent better."

"Usually, a trained singer does it (records a song) in an hour or so. I took three days," he added.
