Ali Zafar’s name has popped up in the list of potential actors to portray legendary Bollywood playback singer, Kishore Kumar in an upcoming biopic. However, the Teefa in Trouble star feels he cannot match up to the late genius’ talent.
On Thursday, a social media user tweeted that while actor Ayushmann Khurrana earlier hinted that he would love to play Kumar, the AndhaDhun star still feels Ali would be the most suitable choice for the role.
The Jhoom singer then shared a link of a song titled Pyar Baantte Chalo from the 1965 film Hum Sab Ustad Hain.
“Dear Kishore Kumar. You are needed now more than ever… A tribute to the great Kishore Kumar,” he captioned the video.
Ali made his debut in Indian cinema in 2010 with Tere Bin Laden. He was later seen in Bollywood films like Luv Ka The End, Mere Brother Ki Dulhan, London, Paris, New York, Chashme Baddoor, Total Siyapaa, Kill Dil and Dear Zindagi.
Film associations in India have banned collaborations with Pakistani talent, in the wake of the February 14 Pulwama terror attack.
