Last heard in Ajay Devgn’s Toonpur Ka Superhero in 2010, qawwal Altaf Raja will return behind the mic in Rajkumar Gupta’s upcoming flick, Ghanchakkar.
He will lend his voice to actor Emraan Hashmi. Interestingly, Altaf might also play a cameo in the movie.
Altaf Raja is best remembered for his iconic tracks such as Tum Toh Thehre Pardesi, Dil Ka Haal Sune Dilwala & Pehle Toh Kabhi Kabhi Ghum Tha.
Confirming the news, Rajkumar Gupta said, “When I heard Amit Trivedi’s composition, we started brain storming on the correct voice. We felt the songs required an earthy and raw tone. I took Altaf Raja’s name as an example. Amit jumped when he heard it.” Manish Hariprasad, Creative Director, Studios, Disney UTV said, “It’s a great composition and Altaf’s voice really suits the song. Altaf’s songs have always worked for the masses and we feel that he singing for Emraan Hashmi will be a treat for the fans. We are planning a music video for the song with Altaf Raja doing a cameo with Emraan and Vidya Balan.“
