Atif Aslam isn't the only Pakistani who will feature on the soundtrack of Salman Khan-starrer Bajrangi Bhaijaan. According to Times of India, Adnan Sami Khan will also lend his vocals to one song, which will be the first qawwali of his career. What's more, the singer will feature in the film during the song's performance - another first for his career.
"Salman called and said, 'Bro, there is this particular song and it's a qawwali and I'd really love you to sing it,'" shared Sami with Times of India, "I loved the challenge as I have never sung a qawwali before. And then he said, 'I'd like to have it picturised on you too.' I said, 'Okay.' For Salman anything."
"I am a typical Pathan," he continued, "Pyaar se mangoge, jaan haazir hai aur agar dosti ki hai toh nibhayenge. I have never appeared in a song that I have sung in a film before, even though there have been so many songs that I have sung and it's a pretty common request to ask a singer to appear in it, but I have never done it. But when Salman asked me to do it, I cannot say no."
The song, titled 'Bhardo Jholi Meri', is inspired by the Sabri brothers' original qawwali, and according to the director Kabir Khan, is Salman's favourite:
Salman had also earlier announced the presence of Adnan Sami in Bajrangi Bhaijaan:
The song's video has been shot inside one of Kashmir's famous shrines, the Aishmuqam Dargah, where no other film has been shot before.
