LAHORE: Pakistani pop star music sensation of Noori band, Singer, musician and guitarist Ali Noor will debut in Bollywood by recording his first song across the border, this will be a single for the upcoming Bollywood production Dear Dad.
The song name is Girha and will release on April 18 while the film will be releasing on May 6 by the Tanu Bhramar director.
Noori said that: This is the first time I’ve sung a song I haven’t composed. It was interesting and tough because I usually improvise but this time I had to follow someone else and do retakes.
They would say sur mein gayen, and I’d say “hum tuner lagatay hain,” and they’d say hum nai lagatay, we sing it accurately. They work with high-end technology.
In an interview to a newspaper in 2012, Noori had added The fact that Bollywood is so high-end and there is no room for mistakes struck me hard. Frankly speaking, I don’t think I am ready for that right now. When asked whether he feels ready now, he said, That is true. This is the first time I feel ready because the music is my type and the film itself is not a mainstream production. It is a part of a new format of films India is exploring, and I prefer those.
It is interesting to note that they recorded the song over a night-long Skype session while Raghav & Arjun were in Mumbai and Noor in Lahore. While giving an interview to a newspaper Arjun, one-half of the duo said, “It was a brilliant session and we know Noor gave it his heart and soul. Both Raghav and Arjun, who are also the music directors for the film, agreed that Noor was the right choice for the song.
“When we recorded the song for the film we wanted something fresh and non-commercial, a voice that was raw, earthy and added a character of its own to the song. We were looking at voices in India and we had options, but nothing fit. Then we remembered Noori’s “Saari Raat Jag,” which was our favorite,”
On a question about his famous songs, Ali Noor said, When we put out a song of our own the interest is different because it’s my creative journey. The fact that I completed the song is the greatest satisfaction and whether people like my songs or not is irrelevant to me.
This time around, he is waiting with bated breath to hear what people have to say about his debut in Bollywood. I’ve never done anything like this before so I don’t feel like I’ve completed anything. It’s about someone else’s work being completed and my anticipation related to it.
Noori band lead singer Noori added that he is working on two songs of their right now– one is called Yeh Zindagi, and the other is with Ali Azmat.
