Fatherhood has changed Atif’s desire to become No.1



Atif Aslam delivered his best from ‘Tera Honay Laga Hoon’ from Ajab Prem ki Ghazab Kahani, ‘Tere Sang Yaara’ from Rustom, ‘Bakhuda’ from Kismet Konnection, ‘Be-inteha’ from Race 2 to his latest hit ‘Dil Dancer Hogaya’ from Actor In Law.

The singer and actor currently become a changed person later than a self-imposed pause, which is according to him was a good thing.

He states “Fatherhood has changed me and my perspective towards life,” the Rock Star continued by saying “Before becoming a father, I wanted to be No.1 but now I feel that there is no such thing. I just want to do my job and entertain as long as I can because that’s the best way to win people over.”

For a person who has won innumerable hearts and minds, Atif Aslam is exclusive from his colleagues – he doesn’t snoop to his own songs!

He admitted “That’s true,” he continued “I don’t listen to my songs. The merely time I do it is when someone points out a flaw in the end product.” Perhaps Atif doesn’t realize their significance in keeping his fans from arriving strictly unhappy later than a chaotic breakup or perking up those still in love. “People come to me and thank me for being there during their breakups or matchups. It looks awkward but I’m happy to be of assistance all through their light or dark moods (laughs).”

Atif Aslam has been active in taking Pakistan into the international stadium. Later than making a name for himself in dozens of Bollywood movies and then Hollywood with Man Push Cart and The Reluctant Fundamentalist, the megastar determined to re-enter local entertainment industry almost five years before by acting and singing for Shoaib Mansoor’s Bol.

He explained “It was high time that I gave the industry something in return later than Bol, which accurately kick-started the renewal of cinema in Pakistan. As I hadn’t done playback here, it looked the best way to make a re-entry. The song ‘Dil Dancer Hogaya’ from Actor In Law isn’t only one more romantic number. It has a diverse feel and exclusive lyrics, which needed something additional, and that is what I have for all the time desired to do.”
