Post Atif Aslam’s ouster, Salman Khan to sing a romantic number for ‘Notebook’?
On February 14, India lost 44 CRPF jawans in Pulwama attack and as usual, it was conducted by Pakistan based terror organisation Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM). Taking immediate action, All Indian Cine Workers Association announced a total ban on Pakistani artists and actors from working in India. In the meantime, Bollywood superstar Salman Khan fired Pakistani singer Atif Aslam from his upcoming production ‘Notebook’ and proved that terror and talks cannot go hand in hand. And now, a new report has surfaced that Salman will himself sing the song which was supposed to be sung by Atif.
According to a report published by Mid-Day, the production team of Notebook felt that no one could do justice to the soft romantic track and Salman’s name came up during brainstorming. The tabloid quoted source as saying, “Many singers were considered, but the makers were not fully convinced whether they would be able to do justice to ‘Main Taare’, which is a soft romantic number.”
“During the brainstorming session, Salman’s name cropped up as he has previously crooned ‘Main Hoon Hero’, another romantic song that had earned much love from listeners. The team thought he would be a good fit,” the source added. The report further stated that Salman Khan has agreed to sing the soft romantic track.
‘Notebook’ marks the debut of Zaheer Iqbal and Pranutan Bahl. They will feature in lead roles. According to the director Nitin Kakkar, the storyline of the film required a picturesque backdrop due to which the film has been shot in Kashmir.
On the work front, Salman will next be seen in Ali Abbas Zafar’s ‘Bharat’ co-starring Katrina Kaif, Tabu and Sunil Grover in pivotal roles. The film will hit the big screens on Eid this year. Salman will also be seen in Arbaaz khan‘s ‘Dabangg 3’ and Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s next.
