‘I don’t miss making music’ says Pakistani actor-singer Ali Zafar, who sings his own songs in the movies he acts in

It took him over four years to bring out Jhoom, his most recent music album. But Pakistani actor-singer Ali Zafar, who was recently seen as a rockstar in Yash Raj Films Luv Ka The End, says he doesn’t miss making music. 'I’m getting to perform my own numbers in the movies I act in. The songs and the videos are also promoted well. So, it’s a twin deal for me. And I don’t miss composing music at all,' he says.

'It’s extremely painful for solo artistes to come out with albums these days on their own because music channels don’t promote them. They’ve all become reality show specialists. It’s too taxing a process now to get good songs across to music patrons.'

The actor, who rose to fame with Tere Bin Laden last year, will be singing and acting out his own songs in his upcoming film, Mere Brother Ki Dulhan, also produced by YRF, toplining Katrina Kaif and Imran Khan. The film revolves around two brothers, dating the same girl. 'I have a romantic number in the film. And also one in the climax but I can’t reveal its details right now. The latter was shot at the Taj Mahal and was a lot of fun because we were stationed at the most beautiful monument of love for two days,' he says. 'I’m really looking forward to the film because it’s a fun entertainer, different from my earlier work.'

His younger brother, played by Imran, gets attracted to his fiance, played by Katrina Kaif. Has he ever seen something similar in real life too? 'No way,' he smiles. 'My brothers treat my wife as their sister and not their sister-in-law. They respect her a lot. I think these kind of things can only happen in our movies.'
