Have you heard Amar Singh’s new CD?

Of course. The one where you can hear Prashant Bhushan offering a judge a bribe, right?

No, no. I’m talking about Amar Singh belting out old hits like Papa kehte hain, Paach rupaiya baara anna and Kal kya hoga kisko pataa.

You mean he is making deals with record companies now?

Well, that’s just perception. He is a singer, not a deal maker.

So what about the Prashant Bhushan CD that he’s supposedly fed to the media?

That was a mix-up. He was DJ-ing at an after-Samajwadi Party party where he was tripping the crowd with a Sheila ki jawani-You are my Sonia mash-up and then put on a ‘Best of Prashant Bhushan’ CD by mistake.

But was it really Prashant Bhushan’s voice?

That’s the thing! It was actually Talat Mahmood.

So what CD are you playing now?

Oh this? It’s Bhupen Hazarika. Remarkable! I could swear it’s Anna Hazare.

Do say: Is Amar Singh the new Gulshan Kumar?

Don’t say: Where’s Bappi-da?
