Alia Bhatt, who walked very glamorously into the corridors of Bollywood with the help of her mentor, Karan Johar has recently discovered a hidden talent. She was made to sing a song on the sets of HIGHWAY, and this by music maestro, A R Rahman himself.
AR Rahman recorded a song ‘Sooha saha…’ for Imtiaz Ali’s upcoming film HIGHWAY in which Alia stars opposite Randeep Hooda. Alia was made to sing under his guidance and naturally she was thrilled by the opportunity given to her by the legend himself.
Alia can’t stop talking fondly about how, because of Rahman’s patience, she had the opportunity to turn singer in just her second film and did not go back home screaming into her pillow.
“I didn’t rehearse much. We went twice (to the studio). We spent quite a lot of time and Rahman Sir was very patient with me, for which I am truly grateful,” said the 20-year-old actress at the music launch.
On a lighter note, Alia joked about making a career as a singer if ever she fails as an actor. Not that we’re hoping that this damsel fails as an actor, but it would be quite interesting to hear Alia take up more singing assignments in the future as well.
Priyanka Chopra is one of the few actors who balance singing and acting equally well and seems like the very talented Alia is on the same path as this diva! Nice!
