Farhan Akhtar refuses to sing for Aamir Khan in Reema’s thriller
Mumbai: Bollywood’s very own multi-talented director-actor-singer Farhan Akhtar has made it emphatically clear that he won’t sing for Aamir Khan in Reema Kagti’s film.
Apparently, Reema has been Farhan’s protégé for more than five years and was very keen to have Farhan singing for Aamir Khan. But Farhan blankly refused Reema’s request.
Talking to a daily, a source said, “Reema has a fabulous music sense. The songs in her directorial debut Honeymoon Travels Pvt. Ltd were big chartbusters. She has big musical plans for the Aamir starrer. In fact, the film has a theme song just for Aamir`s character.”
Interestingly, last year, Farhan not only turned down AR Rahman`s offer to croon for a song in ‘Blue’ but also declined Rohan Sippy`s offer to play the leading role and sing his own songs in ‘Dum Maro Dum’.
Farhan feels that he can only sing for someone if there is an intrinsic connect between the character and his voice. “I enjoy singing. It is true, I haven`t sung for anyone else on screen apart from myself. But it`s not because I am possessive about my voice. I don`t know if my voice will work on anyone else. My singing adds to my performances. I don`t know if it would do the same for the other actors,” said the actor.
“If I feel really kicked about singing for someone else, I will. Singing is not a profession for me. As of now I`ll sing only for myself,” he added.
Well, Farhan is quite choosy when it comes to singing for the actor crooned just one song in his sister Zoya Akhtar`s ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’, something which he explains as, “All three of us, Hrithik, Abhay and I have sung for my sister`s film. It`s a party situation. It seemed interesting to lend our own voices to our characters. That`s the only song I`ve sung in a movie this year. Otherwise I am constantly singing in real life.”
