After playing a Pakistani journalist in Abhishek Sharma’s debut film Tere Bin Laden, Ali Zafar will now be seen doing a cameo in another Bollywood project titled Luv Ka The End, which is expected to be released on May 6.
It looks more like Ali Zafar has got a taste and flavour to go the Bollywood style. If Atif Aslam can commercialise his voice on the Indian silver screen and shine, Ali Zafar too believes that he can cash on his good looks.
Luv Ka The End, is a Hindi comedy has been directed by Bumpy and has been produced by Aashish Patil, whereas the lyricist is Amitabh Battacharya and the music director is Ram Sampat.
The Times of India has quoted it “as hip, zippy and young!” But what we came to know about Ali Zafar’s performance is that in one of the film’s song “F-U-N-Fun-funna”, for which he never accepted the payment and insisted that the cheque be given to a charitable organisation.
Today, it looks more like he is glued to Bollywood, with the offers that he is getting (though, the details, we are still trying hard to fetch) and with the increasing fan following he seems to be poised to be working more for Bollywood, now!
The blue-eyed boy of Pakistani music industry Ali Zafar tells his fans in The Express Tribune, about his work with Y- Films and about his journey which kicked off from Tere Bin Laden and more over about his fan following in India.
How has the journey been from Tere Bin Laden to Luv Ka The End?
It has been amazing and everything one can ever wish for. My journey has been a smooth ride just because of the love my people have always shown. I wouldn’t be here today if it wasn’t for the support that everyone has given me along the way.
Tell us about your fan following in India
I keep getting direct feedback from my Indian fans on Twitter and I would say I am touched by the love and respect people hold for me. Jhoom being the second highest selling album in India is a big honour for me and speaks for the admiration itself. I couldn’t be more thankful.
What are your expectations from Luv Ka The End when it gets released?
It’s the first production of Y- Films (a new division of Yash Raj Films). They have aimed to bring some fresh content and the music explains the same. Even the tones and accents of the singers had to be natural and contemporary. So for me, it’s not watching myself, it’s seeing cinema adopting originality and fresh concepts and I hope people will appreciate the effort.
What are the updates on Mere Brother Ki Dulhan?
I have sung three songs for the movie, out of which one was wrapped up just yesterday (April 29) after an exhausting yet fun-filled five days of nonstop dancing under the sun. After a few days break, the shooting of my next song is going to start.
Rumour has it that you’re about to sign another Bollywood film?
There is more in the pipeline, I would say at least two movies, but it’s too soon to disclose anything about them.
Any plans for Lollywood?
I haven’t come across any offers which don’t have me holding a gundasa with moustaches and a big belly. So none for Lollywood as yet.
What’s up next?
Next? More and more movies in Bollywood.
