Salman Khan, who is busy shooting the show "Bigg Boss 8", will re-record Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's "Dholi Taro" song from "Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam" for the reality show.
The superstar made a call to music director duo Sajid-Wajid and pumped them up to re-work on "Dholi Taro", according to a Mumbai Mirror report.
Originally composed by Ismail Darbar, the song is still a festive favourite and with Navratri in full swing, the actor thought it to be an opportune moment for re-recording it.
"The creative team of the reality show suggested that Salman re-record some of his chartbusters. Excited by the idea, he immediately came up with a list of favourites that he wanted to sing. Dholi Taro topped that list," revealed a source close to the development.
Also, according to reports, a temporary recording studio has been created close to the "Bigg Boss 8" sets. "The musicians reached here on Friday evening and the recording went on for over two hours," added the source.
Composer Wajid confirmed Mirror that "Dholi Taro" has been recorded but didn't divulge any more details.
However, this is not the first time that Khan took to singing. After "Hello Brother" and "Wanted", he crooned alongside Shreya Ghoshal for his latest hit film "Kick", which turned out to be quite a chartbuster.
A painter and an incredible charmer, Khan took it up as an experiment. Ahead of the release of "Kick", he told The Times of India that he was trying his hand at singing just for fun.
"I have realised that if I can sing, anybody can. Modern equipment and technology help adjust sur. It is just that you need some basic skills. More than singers, it's difficult for the arrangers and composers. Everybody sounds good when the mastered copy comes out," Khan said.
Of course, we have trained singers who are on a different level altogether. But these days, we rarely have songs that need solid, trained singers. Most of the time, tracks are simple. Technicians are turning singers into gods. I can say this from my personal experience," he added.
