Amanat Ali started Bollywood Career – sang for two Bollywood Films
Saregamapa is a platform which has given so many singers to the film industry like Shreya Ghoshal, Kunal Ganjawala. It is the dream of every contestat to be there in the recording room and give their voice for playback singing. And this dream has come true for Amant Ali. Amanat Ali, who is often called Dubai ke Mahabali has bagged the opportunity to give playback in two Bollywood films.
Amanat has recorded the title song for K C Boakdia’s ‘Junoon’ and another song for director Shamir Tandon’s untitled film. Amanat is very excited at having got the opportunity so early in life. He says, “I can’t express how happy I am. It was very nice of Bappi Da to recommend my name for playback singing.
I more excited about the fact that I got a solo song which one doesn’t get very easily.” Incidentally, Amanat got only two hours to rehearse for this song before he could record it. He says, “I was at Bappi Da’s house. He was going for a bath. He told me to check if I could sing this song by the time he had a bath. I realised I could sing the song and I got only two hours before I could actually record it.”
His biggest pride lies in the fact that the song he sung for Shamir Tandon’s film has stalwarts like Asha Bhosle and Shankar Mahadevan too giving their voices. “It is just unbelievable to have my and Ashaji’s voice in one song. It has always been my dream to sing with the legend,” Amanat says. However, Amanat is little disappointed about the fact that he didn’t record with Asha. Amanat who is the winner of ‘Sa Re Ga Ma Pa – Pakistan Middle East Challenge’ made a direct entry to competition.
Pakistani by birth, Amanat says he doesn’t want to return to his country. He says, “I have decided to stay here. This is the place that will give me the opportunity to grow and establish myself as a solo singer.”
Though, he would make intermittent trips to Pakistan as he is a lead singer of a classical band called Meekaal Hasan there.
