Pop singer and actor Atif Aslam will soon be seen and heard on the big screen again as he is currently recording music for a Bollywood film.
Tips Films posted a photo of the ex-Jal member in Turkey with Jay Shewakramani, the creative producer of the Bollywood film Race 2, and made an official announcement that Aslam will be doing songs for their upcoming production. Race 2 will be directed by Abbas Mustan and produced under the Tips Music Films banner. It is the sequel to the 2008 hit film, Race, and stars an ensemble cast that includes Anil Kapoor, Saif Ali Khan, John Abraham, Deepika Padukone, Jacqueline Fernandez and Ameesha Patel.
According to pakium.com, Aslam, who has given various hits like “Tere Bin”, “Tera Honay Laga Hun” and “Tu Mohabbat Hai”, is set to do two new songs for the film. Like the 2008 super hit film Race, for which Aslam sang the chartbuster song “Pehli Nazar”, the music of its sequel will be done by music director and composer, Pritam Chakraborty.
The latest buzz suggests that like Race, Aslam will also appear in a promotional music video for Race 2, which is scheduled to release on January 25, 2013.
Apart from that, the pop singer is set to return to the latest season of “Coke Studio”; having a total of four performances in the fifth season of the show.
