News Desk |

Indian filmmaker Sudhir Mishra believes Pakistani singer Atif Aslam is among the finest singers in the Indo-Pak entertainment industry. Atif Aslam has recently sung the song ‘Sehmi hai Dhadkan’ in Sudhir Mishra’s ‘Das Dev’.

Sudhir Mishra has immensely praised Atif Aslam’s voice. In his recent statement, he justified his selection of Atif Aslam for his upcoming movie. “Like all great singers, Atif has the capacity to bring out the emotional depth of a song, but is never sentimental.”

He continued, “The words are articulated so brilliantly but there is a touch of mystery. It has the capacity to mean different things to the listener at different times,” Mishra said in a statement.

Vipin Patwa has composed and Sagar has written the song. Atif Aslam, in his statement, termed the composition of the song beautiful.

“It is an interesting composition because of the lyrics and the way it was supposed to be sung, especially the change of the music from the beginning to the end, is very amusing.” “It is beautifully composed and I thoroughly enjoyed working for this song, I hope everyone loves it too”, he added further.

The director’s comment came amidst Babul Supriyo’s strong call to ban Pakistani artists working in Bollywood. Many entertainers in the Hindi Film Industry have supported his call including Kajol, Ajay Devgan, Anupam Kher, Paresh Rawal.

Filmmakers, however, have either shunned the call or have opted to refrain from commenting on the situation.

Atif, Aslam, in particular, has been actively working in the Hindi film industry for more than a decade now. He made his first presence in the Hindi Playback industry in ‘Kalyug’. Since then, he has worked with famous directors like Karan Johar, Abbas-Mustan, Madhur Bhandarkar, Mahesh Bhatt and others in the Hindi film industry.
