Salman Khan: If I can sing, anybody can sing

Even as Salman Khan-starrer Kick is getting ready for release, the actor has pleasantly surprised everyone with his rendition of the mushy melody, Hangover. Says the Bollywood superstar, "Singing is very difficult. I would break into a sweat while recording; it was as if I was once again shooting for Maine Pyar Kiya."

He credits composer Wajid for the appreciation Hangover has garnered. "Wajid used to sing one line and I would emulate it. I was comfortable with him since he knows my voice and there is no shyness. I can sing openly in front of him and so, I would improvise. The technicians would then work on it, and I finally realised that most singers work like that. It was a superb experience. I have not just sung the song, I have felt it. One day, I will reach a stage jab har sur barabar lagega," Salman says.

The actor adds, "When I sang inside the studio, it sounded a bit strange. I asked them to stop playing it as I found it bakwaas. But then, the technicians made me listen to the song post recording and I was happy with what I finally heard... kamaal ho gaya... mazaa aa gaya."

Salman says he enjoyed singing so much that he is contemplating doing riyaz every day. Interestingly, he is not new to singing. He had recorded Chandi Ki Daal Par Sone Ka Mor for Hello Brother in 1999. "At that time, maine gaana bola tha, but I have sung for the first time," he points out. In a lighter vein, he adds, "Sriji (Sridevi) had once told me that she feels like running away whenever she hears a song recorded in her voice. It is the same with me. I like my voice only upto the bathroom level... bathroom tak hi achhi lagti hai, but I can't invite everybody in my bathroom, na."
So, what motivated him to sing? Salman replies(with a mischievous grin), "Majboori. Where are the singers these days?" On a serious note, he says, "I want to be a complete actor. If I can do action and comedy, I can sing too. There was no compulsion as such. We were just trying it for fun and I sounded okay. When the song went in mixing and mastering, my voice was presentable. It feels good for my own satisfaction."

Interestingly, if Salman has inherited painting skills from his mother, his singing genes come from his father, Salim Khan. "My father sings very high notes. Our voices are trained for high sur. He likes my singing. Sometimes, it is there in your genes and you don't even know it," he says.

And like his father, Salman loves old Hindi melodies. Ramaiya Vasta Vaiya, Kahin Door Jab Din Dhal Jaaye, Parbat Ke Peeche Chambe Da Gaon, Main Jat Yamla Pagla Deewana... are some of his favourite songs. "In Western, I like Michael Jackson and then Retro. I don't understand rap or the new stuff. I remember old songs which are easier to sing and has melody," he says.

Similarly, he sees a certain old-world charm in inviting musicians home for music sittings. "I do it for all my films and it is done in a traditional way. I never hear scratches. Musicians come home with tabla, peti, harmonium; they play the instruments and we have live singing," says the actor.


Has he learnt anything new as a singer? "I have realised that if I can sing, anybody can. Modern equipment and technology help adjust sur. It is just that you need some basic skills. More than singers, it's difficult for the arrangers and composers. Everybody sounds good when the mastered copy comes out. Of course, we have trained singers who are on a different level altogether. But these days, we rarely have songs that need solid, trained singers. Most of the time, tracks are simple. Technicians are turning singers into gods. I can say this from my personal experience."

Salman Khan hangs out with Media


Bollywood superstar Salman Khan was present at the media interaction for KICK. The film is produced and directed by Sajid Nadiadwala and features Salman Khan, Jacqueline Fernandez, Randeep Hooda & Nawazuddin Siddiqui in the lead roles. KICK is set to release this Eid.

Salman Khan Interacting with Media for Kick

The Jai Ho star was seen interacting with the media regarding his upcoming film Kick

Salman Khan surely put the paparazzi in a frenzy after his hugging stint with Shah Rukh Khan at Congress minister’s Baba Siddiqui’s Iftaar party.
The two Khans were spotted embracing each other warmly, a pleasant sight for our sore eyes indeed.
But looks like this Bhaijaan had other deeds to complete rather than sitting and basking in the glory of his iconic moment with SRK. Right after the hug, Salman Khan was spotted having a round table conference with the media where he was seen talking about his upcoming film Kick.
Though popular for his warmth and carefree style, Salman Khan is a toughie when it comes to business! This lad certainly seems to be taking his upcoming film rather seriously and we are certain our Sallu miyaan will set a ground breaking record this time as well.
