Last but not the least he has sung an exclusive songs for all the India-Forums members and have promised to visit the website soon.
Ali: I wanted to become different things at different point of time. Well when I was a kid I wanted to be a superman but as I grow older I realized it is not easy to fly so I had to give that up. When I grew up little my interest in music started to grow day by day. When I was in college there was some music society which I joined that and then I realized this is what I wanted to do. But coming from the background where my parents teach arts and design they wanted me to have a some sort of degree so I graduated as a Painter as I used to paint as a child. I used to collect money by making people’s portrait.
Tell us about your favorite songs from the album Masti?
Ali: Sun re Sajania, Jaane na koi pechana nai koi, Tere Agnal. All my songs are my favorite. And now after the video of Dekha I like that song too.
Ali: Well I think fame has changed me for a better. It has taught me reality of life. This field tends to shake you from your feet a lot. One moment you are admired, loved by all, so many comments coming your way that you are the best which is ego boosting. It can take you to a lalalland that you are invincible but my training, my school of thought and what I have learnt and even my religion teaches me to be humble. The biggest picture is to be a good human being and to stay grounded with your family and do not go astray and indulge in self indulgence.
Your songs Rangeen and Chanoo were copied by Indian Composers without you getting due credits. So what do you have to say to it?
Ali: Well (sigh) You are happy and at the same time sad.. You are happy that your music is worth being copied but at a same time it could be done in a more ethical manner. If they could have asked me I would have given it to them. But I think one should move on and not look behind.
Now the question that all the girls wants to know is what will be Ali Zafar’s dream girl be like?
Ali: My dreamgirl will have to be a better human being rather than just pretty face. She should understand my profession and not be be all possessive about me.
