Aamir Khan to turn singer
Perfectionist Aamir Khan is all set to lend his voice for upcoming Yashraj film ‘Dhoom 3’. The talented actor, who is playing a negative role in the sequel to Dhoom2, has agreed to sing the theme song which will be picturised on him. The last time Aamir sang for a film was the chartbuster ‘Aati Kya Khandala’ for Jatin-Lalit in Ghulam.
Composer Pritam Chakraborty has set aside all his assignments from June to fully focus on the music of ‘Dhoom 3’. The over-committed music composer with a hit record for the last three years has been asked to
concentrate only on the music of ‘Dhoom 3’ from June onwards by producer Aditya Chopra. He would have to complete all his pending assignments and make himself completely free for the YRF film.
Sources in the industry have claimed that the music composer, who has composed music for ‘Dhoom’ and ‘Dhoom2’ in the past, had a closed-door meeting with Aditya Chopra at the Yashraj office where the producer stressed on creating a new sound for ‘Dhoom 3’ including a signature tune for Aamir`s character. The composer has been asked to come with a unique tune which would make the audience sit up and jump out of their seats every time Aamir came on screen.
The composer is naturally very excited to work with Aamir. “I`ve said no to several new assignments including Double Dhamaal. This is the first time in my entire career that I`d be working with Aamir Khan. We all know how special that makes this project” Pritam said. He admitted that creating a theme song for Aamir`s villainous character would be a challenge.
Pritam added, “The title song and music are of course integral to the music in Dhoom. But I have to go beyond that. There will be a quality of sound in Dhoom 3 that will make Dhoom and D:2 recede from the audiences` mind.”
