Salman Ali, after winning the 10th season of ‘Indian Idol’, did some playback. He’s due to release his new single tomorrow (8th January) titled Mubarak Allah.
The singer spoke about this single.
Is there anything special that you can us about the song?
Well, the best thing is the song title which has the name of the almighty. ALLAH has graced me with so much; I feel so blessed at times. It’s a love song.
Can you share your experience working on the song, both recording and shooting for it?
When I heard the song for the first time, I instantly said yes as I liked it very much. While shooting, I really enjoyed it as it was totally a different experience for me. Director Santosh Mishra made me so comfortable in front of the camera that I didn’t feel that we were doing a shoot or something for a second. We have really put our heart and soul into this song and hope people will like it and give their love to this song as they give me all the time.
Can you tell explain the idea behind the song?
When first Choklate Pi came to me with the idea of this song, I agreed without a second thought. I am most comfortable with him as he himself is a great artist, which gives him an edge to understand another artist like me. After seeing the final video, I am very confident that this project will be liked by people worldwide.
What has your lockdown experience been?
Well, lockdown allowed us to understand and realise we should be prepared for anything and everything. I didn’t sit idle during the lockdown, my music was on all the time. In fact, I got the time to make music, which I wasn’t getting due to my busy schedule in live shows and recordings otherwise.
