Further talking about the latest problem with singer Rahat Fateh Ali Khan…. He says,” I would not like to comment on this issue. I do not know what exactly the matter is. All I can say is that this is not a very pleasant situation and no one would ever like to get indulged in such happening.” He averts the query smartly.

Getting into a bigger bracket with the likes of YRF and Karan Johar he adds,” I think I was lucky enough to get recognition through my first flick “Tere Bin… and offers started pouring in thereafter.”

Given a chance Ali will choose singing over acting.” Ya! I am passionate about singing. I shall surely choose singing over acting but if I am bestowed upon a chance to work for both I shall definitely jump for it.” He gushes smilingly.

Coming back to his latest film”MBKS ,Ali Zafar who seems to be very enthused for he is the fiancée of Kathrina Kaif. Don’t you jump to conclusion he is the fiancé on reel. He adds, “Imran and I are brothers in “Mere Brother Ki Dulhan. While Katrina is my fiancée. I am a very charming and flamboyant person but confused about what I want from life. It was not only fun working with Kat and Imraan but also a great learning experience.” the Pakistani actor gives away some details, giving a sneak peek into the film.

Ali Zafar also clarifies about not being miffed with Imraan on the sets.” I fail to understand as to where from such stories pop up. Infact Imraan Khan is a very humble guy. We get along pretty well. Whenever we have time we surely meet up on a coffee and enjoy discussing various subjects.”

Getting personal we ask his take on metro sexual man.” Showing off his painted nails he gives away a secret,”Actually, before I could take the flight to India my father-in-law was doing pedicure and manicure. He just called me and asked me to clean up with my nails. The only regret is that the nail polish I am wearing is too shinnying. There is no harm in cleaning your nails. Even we guys can be prim and proper with our body parts.

Since Ali is the field of Glitz n glamor and also married will he prefer getting into an extra marital affair we quiz? Laughs aloud and quips,” Well! I am totally a family person. Not that I may not get attracted to any female actor while working. But I will always think twice to get into any relationship cause I am of the opinion that why spoil your family life just for the sake of enjoying only for 45 minutes. Family is more important than any other momentary link ups. So I better be away from it”

Alis take on love is,” Love sees no boundaries… love happens .. no one tries to fall in love intentionally. I.E at times love is one sided. Yes! Attraction and meeting any opposite sex often may develop likings for each other but love also may happen instantly at the very first sight… Love is an unusual happening which definitely puts your heart above your mond.” Ali Zafar adds philosophically.

Four Reasons why ‘Lamhaa’ didn’t take off with a roaring start

After all when the date was decided a few weeks back, films like ‘Tere Bin Laden’ and ‘Udaan’ hardly seemed to be any competition. Also, the Hollywood release ‘Inception’ wouldn’t have been considered as a challenge by any means.

Bollywood gets Three Unconventional Releases this Friday

Three distinct films release tomorrow – ‘Lamhaa’, ‘Tere Bin Laden’ and ‘Udaan’. Incidentally, none of the three films are true blue conventional Bollywood outings. They are not romantic affairs, they don’t boast the kind of comedy that Bollywood is known for and also they don’t quite fit into the category of family films. However, at least a couple of them do look interesting here – ‘Lamhaa’ and ‘Tere Bin Laden’. ‘Lamhaa’ boasts of the star power of Sanjay Dutt and Bipasha Basu and the hard hitting promos that promise a quality outing seems to have done the trick.

What made a popular singer like you to take up the offer to play the lead in a Hindi film in India?

As a singer, you crave for glory but once you get what you seek you want to do something to explore, to feel excited and challenged as an artistic person. I feel that a film is the ultimate medium where a singer also gets the scope to dabble with creativity in a bigger way.
