Imran turns to singing
Kishore Kumar, Bharat Bhushan, Geeta Dutt - singing actors took over the silver screen in 1950s and 1960s Bollywood. The trend revived when Amitabh Bachchan took to the recording studio to lend his voice to songs in his 1979 film Mr Natwarlal. Many actors have followed suit in later years. After Aamir Khan, Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan, another Khan boy is ready to exercise his vocal chords. Thanks to filmmaker Vishal Bhardwaj. Mirror has learnt that Imran Khan has lent his voice to what is being referred to as the ‘street song’ in Vishal’s next project Matru Ki Bijli Ka Mandola.
The song penned by Gulzar has been sung by Imran and his co-star Pankaj Kapur. In fact, it has already been picturised. A unit member revealed, “Imran is extremely excited about working with Vishal. The filmmaker too is fond of Imran. While shooting this sequence between Imran and Pankaj Kapur, everybody felt that the dialogues could be turned into a song.”
And that’s how the song was born. Gulzar had already written the dialogues and Vishal simply added music to it. The song has now been titled Jalegi Kaise.
A source close to Vishal confirmed the news and added, “Vishal loved the lyrics and the unit had a lot of fun shooting it.”
