What happens when Bollywood’s youngest playback singer and Bollywood’s most romantic voice come together?
Read on to find out, and don’t forget to watch Brown Girl Kanika Monga interview the duo on “Dil Ki Baat’s” YouTube channel.
Palak Mucchal and Javed Ali toured the U.S and we’ve got the inside scoop, just for you. Palak Mucchal, at the age of 24, has given Bollywood hit numbers such as “Prem Ratan Dhan Payo” and “Meri Aashiqui.” She even sang “Jumme Ki Raat” with Salman Khan in “Kick.”
What makes her absolutely incredible is that she uses profits from her concerts to help pay for heart surgeries for underprivileged children who are born with congenital heart disease. She has funded 904 surgeries thus far. (Hats off to this inspirational young lady!)
In the interview below, we find out who her dream actress to do playback singing for would be, and much more.
You may recognize Ali’s voice from “Jodha Akhbar,” “Bajrangi Bhaijaan,” “Wazir” or even “Raanjhana.” What we found out during the interview is, he is a true romantic at heart and one of the most down to earth people to talk to. It’s no surprise he is the winner of the IIFA Award for Best Male Playback Singer!
In our interview, we find out where he gets his inspiration from and how his experience was as a judge on ZEETV’s “Sa Re Ga Ma’s Lil’ Champs.”
