Atif Aslam is back with a bang.
Singer Atif Aslam is back with successful song “be imtihah” in film Race 2. The film had been the first bollywood film on 2013 to cross the 100 crores mark. The song had been picturized on Saif Ali Khan and Deepika Padukone in the film Race 2.
When he sang the song “wo lamhe” in the film Zeher in 2005, he created an impression in Indian films with his stylish singing. The style was appreciated with the song “pehli nazar me aisa jadoo kar diya” in the film Race in 2008. At that time he became popular as a singer in India. Pritam composed the music of the film.
He followed it up with the song “bakhuda tumhi ho’ in the film Kismat Connection. 2009 was the most successful year of Atif Aslam. He sang hit songs one after the other. His voice suited Ranbir Kapoor a lot in the film Ajab Prem Ki Gazab Kahaani. All the songs including “tera hone laga hoon” with Alisha Chinoy and song “tu jaane na” became bumper hit. The film also became super hit.
2010 and 2011 were lean years for Atif Aslam. Although he sang songs in the film Prince and Faltu, the songs did not create any impact. In 2012, his song “piya ore piya” with Shreya Ghoshal became super hit. It was picturized on Ritesh Deshmukh and Genelia Desouza in the film Tere Naal
In 2013, his songs in the film Race 2 already created storms. He sang the song “be imtihah” with Sunidhi Chauhan. He also sang the song “allah duhai hai” with Vishal Dadhlani and Anushka Manchanda. His music albums Jalpari, Doori and Meri Kahaani are very popular in India. He also adjudicate musical rounds in the music competition Sur Kshetra along with other judges like Asha Bhosle, Runa Laila, etc.
The Indian composers like Pritam, Salim Sulaiman, Vishal Shekhar should use him frequently because his style of singing is unique.
