Music to your ears: Atif Aslam to pay tribute to two late Bollywood stars

Popular Pakistani singer Atif Aslam will perform in Dubai in a tribute to legendary Bollywood stars Shammi Kapoor and Dev Anand tonight, singing songs from the ’60s and ’70s as well as his own hits.

In an email interview, Aslam told tabloid! about the show and more.

 Q. Tell us about the show?

A. We’ll be doing our regular hits. Then we’ll also perform a tribute to Dev Anand and Shammi Kapoor.

Q. You will be performing songs which were predominantly voiced by legendary singers Mohammad Rafi and Kishore Kumar. Did you need to prepare specially for it?

A. Of course, I do need to prepare for it. I am not comparing myself to those legends. It’s just that I want to present something well and professionally. 

Q. How would you describe your music?

A. I take inspiration from everything around me and express it in the form of my music. 

Q. In a country teeming with talent, what do you feel is the reason for your popularity?

A. Allah has blessed me, otherwise I don’t see any particular reason.

 Q. A Bollywood actor recently said that Pakistani artists are crossing over to India because the media is much bigger? Do you agree?

A. Well, Bollywood is a bigger platform then our music industry. However the Pakistani music industry has its own flavour which is why our singers are so famous there. Bollywood knows how to project an artist and how to market their music. 

Q. What about music culture in the UAE?

A. It’s a nice place which contains a mix of Pakistani and Bollywood families so people have both flavours to them. The UAE audience is great in terms of responding to their favourite artists.

 Q. Recently the Pak Tribune commented on the show Coke Studio as "mocking” and the "soul being sucked out of” culture, and you’ve performed with Rohail Hyatt and Qayaas on the show with your version of Charkha Nolakha. What do you have to say?

A. Well, everyone has their own taste and freedom of expression. Besides criticism there are more than a million views on youtube. 

Q. You’ve won and been nominated for various awards. How much difference do these make in one’s personal growth?

A. Awards are good initially to boost your confidence, especially when they are credible. Rest is all marketing.
