Pakistani musicians have been making their way into Bollywood rather frequently these days, but what we don’t see much is Pakistan crossing over to Hollywood! However, rock band Overload and Atif Aslam have managed to pull of the feat by adding music to Mira Nair’s The Reluctant Fundamentalist. 

Two thumbs up!

Overload’s one-off-track “Dhol Bajay Ga” has been selected for the film, marking Overload’s 10 years in music. The production company Cine Mosaic, which has made this a possibility for Overload, has also discussed future projects with the band’s lead singer and drummer Farhad Humayun. The band also plans to play live concerts at Japanese and Singaporean arenas this year.

The film will also reportedly feature music by Pakistani pop artist Atif Aslam as well as legendary British rocker Peter Gabriel. According to The Times of India, both artists will be singing verses of poem “Bol Ke Lab Azad Hain Tere” composed by renowned Urdu poet Faiz Ahmed Faiz. Atif will also be singing “Mori Araj Suno” and “Bol” for the film. Hats off to Overload and Atif for making waves in international waters!

    Working in Mira Nair’s The Reluctant Fundamentalist” is not purely Hollywood, at best Cross Over movie as it is called in India.As in Most of her film: story, actor and support staff is from India.This movie has Lahore as background, which was shoot at Delhi, so the story also demands some background from Pakistan.I am not saying this to belittle the genius of Pak musicians.

    The reluctant fundamentalist is NOT a Hollywood movie. Mira Nair – is an independent producer of Indian origin. So really the break through is to the samedemographic.

    Atif Aslam ke gale sur nahin hain. Bollywood producers fix the pitch and tone of his vocals to make him sound bearable.

    Don’t forget Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, his music was on the soundtrack for “Dead Man Walking” (1995) featuring Sean Penn and Susan Sarandon.
