Pakistani actor and singer Ali Zafar is likely to sing qawwali for an upcoming Punjabi film.
Zafar sang a qawwali last week in Pakistan during an award showin tribute to Amjad Sabri, the Pakistani qawwal maestro, who was shot dead in Karachi in June this year, reported the Indian media.
A filmmaker has approached the ‘Tere Bin Laden’ actor to sing a qawwali for a Punjabi movie.
Ali will be seen singing the qawwali in a special sequence in the film. The actor will also have few dialogues in the scene, for which he is working on his pronunciation of the Punjabi language.
“I am proactive towards my passion for music. I want to explore all the verticals of music from romantic songs to qawwalis to rock scores and anthems. There is a request for a qawwali in a Punjabi film,” Ali said in a statement.
