‘Want to sing for Shahrukh Khan’ – Javed Ali

After lending his voice to Aamir Khan, Amitabh Bachchan, Akshay Kumar and Hrithik Roshan, four of the biggest names in the industry, playback singer Javed Ali wants to sing for Shahrukh Khan.

“I have always been complimented that my voice matches all actors like Shahid Kapoor, Ajay Devgan, Amitabh Bachchan, Hrithik Roshan. But I have not sung for Shahrukh Khan and I would like to sing for him.”

In the recent past, Javed Ali has delivered chartbusters like ‘Jashn-e-bahaara’ (Jodhaa Akbar), ‘Kajra Re’ (Bunty Aur Babli) and also had songs to sing in ‘Guzaarish’ and ‘Ghajini’.

When asked about how he prepares for a song, Ali said “When a song is recorded, we are told about the situation and the stars in the movie. So, we keep that in mind and the star’s body language and style. When I had to sing ‘Kajrare’, I thought that my voice will not match that of Amitabh Bachchan’s. I heard Kishoreda’s ‘Inteha ho gayi’ and I used the same style”

Talking about the current scenario in the music industry, he said “There was a time in the 1980’s when music was almost over. If you think about it, it will be tough to remember any song which came during that time. But now music has come back. There are amazing musicians like Vishal-Shekhar, Amit Trivedi, Sneha Khanwalkar who are doing a good job”

He concluded by talking about some of his upcoming songs “It is a surprise. There are some songs for Yashraj Films, Bhatt saab (Mahesh Bhatt), for Aamir and Salman as well”

His biggest dream though is to be the voice behind Shahrukh Khan.
