Tu Chahiye: Salman Khan picks Atif Aslam for Bajrangi Bhaijaan balladPakistan
If he had once taken a backseat in Bollywood, we can no longer say that that's true. Atif Aslam is set to lend his vocals to a love song titled 'Tu Chahiye' in Salman Khan's next, Bajrangi Bhaijaan — at the behest of the actor himself!
Atif Aslam has sung for films like Akshay Kumar's It's Entertainment, Shahid Kapoor's Phata Poster Nikla Hero, Saif- and Deepika-starrer Race 2 and most recently Varun Dhawan's Badlapur, but this is the first time that he'll be singing for a Salman Khan film.
Bajrangi Bhaijaan co-producer Amar Butala confirmed the news: “The song ‘Tu Chahiye’ shot on Salman and Kareena is a beautiful love song shot by Ahmed Khan extensively in old Delhi capturing the romance of the old city. When Salman heard the scratch of the song, he suggested we record with Atif Aslam. This will be the first time Atif will sing for Salman, and the song in Atif’s voice sounds incredible,” Indian Express reports him as saying.
Choreographer Ahmed Khan's previous credits include Rangeela, Taal, Ghajini and Kick. The song's music has been done by popular composer Pritam.
Bajrangi Bhaijaan's first trailer will be out on June 18 and the film is slated to release on Eid.
