Arijit Singh’s soulful voice can lift the mood of anyone. And when a beautiful voice collaborates with a production house known for it’s immensely melodious tracks, the end product is surely something we can play on the loop. So when we got to know that Arijit Singh has crooned a song for filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt’s new show Naamkarann which is set to debut on Star Plus from next month.
And seeing these two names together, we definitely couldn’t contain our excitement. So just when the wait was getting unbearable, we got to know that Arijit has sung a special song for the show, which is a rendition of the classic ‘Aaj Jaane Ki Zidd Na Karo’. While it’s original penned down by legendary Ghazal writer Fayyaz Hashmi, and popularised by singer Farida Khanum, tops the all time favourite list for each one of us, Arijit’s special version is no less. Ofcourse, the contemporary singer has given his own twist to the beautiful track and it can be played on the loop, for it’s soothing feel.
Mahesh Bhatt’s show Naamkarann is the story about a 10-year-old girl who carves her own identity and takes charge of her own destiny. Some reports claim that the show is based on Bhatt’s hit film, Zakhm. We know that Bhatt has an expert ear in understanding music.
No doubt his films have evergreen tracks. Now we look forward to seeing how he will recreat the same musical magic on the small screen too. His new TV show will also have beautiful tracks sung by other stalwarts like Monali Thakur, Anuradha Paudwal, Anu Malik, Kumar Sanu, Jeet Gannguli, Palak Muchhal, and Aaryan. Arijit shared a small video of the song with his fans.
Arijit Singh was in news few months back when he had a public fallout with actor Salman Khan over a song in Sultan. Arijit sadly couldn’t win back the confidence of Salman, who gave away his song to another amazing singer Rahat Fateh Ali Khan. The song in question ‘Jag Ghoomeya’ went on to become one of the most wonderful tracks of the season. However, seeing Arijit’s new collaboration, we just hope that we get to see more of the singer, whose career came at stake during the entire episode with Salman.
