'It was a very proud moment for me when Mallika rang me up thanking me for giving her the song. It made me even prouder to know that she didn't know Anmol was my daughter,' Malik told IANS.
'I want Anmol to get her own identity. Though I'm there to help her in every way possible, I don't want her to be recognised as my daughter,' added the proud father.
'When I came to the industry, I had no godfathers. I struggled, fell to the ground and rose again. Today, I'm doing some of the best work of my career. And I want Anmol to be the best in the business, without having to struggle the way I did.'
The item song is part of the Ranvir Shorey's fantasy song where Mallika plays out every teenaged fantasy from 'Baywatch' to 'Barbarella'.
Anmol sang for her father in J.P. Dutta's 'Umrao Jaan' and has lent her voice for debutante Sheena in Satish Kaushik's upcoming film 'Tere Sang'.ALSO READ: Anu Malik Moved by Rik Basu's Performance, Compares Him to Kumar Sanu
