Playback singers have always played an integral part in Bollywood, lending their melodious vocals to many heroes and heroines on the big screen, but now in recent times it’s becoming popular for actors to sing their own songs. Some disagree with this, however AR Rahman thinks otherwise.
Reported on DNA India, some singers have expressed that actors should just stick to acting and leave the singing to the singers, which they say there are plenty of, but Rahman feels there isn’t wrong in this concept. With the likes of Ayushmann Khurrana, Alia Bhatt, Shraddha Kapoor, but to name a few, Rahman says it’s a nice idea and if the actors put enough time and effort into it they can perfect their singing skills.
“Actors singing their songs in movies is the general norm worldwide. The actors need time to practice singing for their song before they record it. Nowadays, actors are very busy with hectic schedules and juggling with work commitments, leaving them with no time to practice singing their song,” further adding, “If they take time out and practice, it will be an amazing idea for them to sing for their movies.”
Rahman will be appearing as a judge on the singing reality show ‘The Voice India’ for the first time, which stars in February on Star Plus.
