The handsome Pakistani crooner Mustafa Zahid is emotional about his new track ‘Bhula Dena’ from the forthcoming Aashiqui-2, directed by Mohit Suri. The singer and director hit it off during Awarapan way back in 2007, when Zahid rendered the film’s hit tracks ‘Toh Phir Aao’ and ‘Tera Mera Rishta’.
Suri offered him the song from Aashiqui-2 saying it was to be in memory of his late father, Daksh, who passed away a few weeks before the release of his Murder-2. Producer Mahesh Bhatt felt that no voice other than Mustafa’s would suit the film’s highlight song.
Remarks Zahid from the UK, “This track appears in the climax of the film. I promised Mohit that I’ll make the audience cry when they walk out!” He adds, “The track has a special place in my heart also because during its dubbing, my manager and friend Faisal’s mother suddenly passed away in Lahore. I was in shock.”
Zahid, who recently rendered ‘Hum Jee Lenge’ for Murder-3, has also rendered a romantic number (‘Yeh Junoon’) for John Abraham and Kangana Ranaut in the forthcoming Shootout At Wadala, directed by Sanjay Gupta. “That’s another special number for a special someone,” he smiles. “It’s going to rock in the film.”
