LAHORE – Pakistan’s Atif Aslam has achieved another feat in his music career as he took on singing in Bengali for an upcoming Tollywood production called Cockpit.
The love song is titled Mithe Alo, the teaser for which was released a couple of days ago, and has attracted around 100,000 views already.
Atif explained his experience of singing in a foreign language, saying it is a challenging task as “you have to be careful about the pronunciations and the dialect”.
“But I love challenges,” the singer added.
“I had to understand the subject of the song,” Atif said, elaborating that to ensure accuracy, he spoke to a couple of friends whose native language was Bengali.
Singing in urdu – hindi – punjabi – saraiki – persian was fun but giving voice to bengali song was quite a challenge.

“The music director also helped me with the dialect,” he added.
The vocalist artist, however, did not confirm the date when the song will be made available to the public.
