MUMBAI: The new Pakistani singing sensation, Rafaqat Ali Khan, released his album Nishaan Rafaqat recently. The album was launched on Times Music and is an assortment of Punjabi, Hindi and Sufi music.
Says Rafaqat, Ã¢â‚¬Å“I am a trained classical singer, but the album is a mix of different styles to suit the taste buds of Indians.Ã¢â‚¬Â The lyrics and music have been composed by his close friends.
Talking about his career in India, he adds, Ã¢â‚¬Å“This is the biggest platform I could have asked for. People from all over the world want to kick start their career in India. Pakistan definitely has a market too and my music has been appreciated. But itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s more commercialised here.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Khan has done playback singing for Krrish, Awarapan and the forth coming film Dhoka. He adds, Ã¢â‚¬Å“I have been getting offers for playback, but will talk about them as and when they are finalised.Ã¢â‚¬Â
