Atif Aslam

Pakistani artists and singers are known for making music of different genres whereas in India most of the music made is the typical filmy sort. And the audience demands variety, so when the need for diversity arose the directors and producers had no choice but to look across the border for fresh talent. And when they did so, their eyes fell directly on Atif Aslam! This was back in 2005 when Atif Aslam crossed the border for the first time to sing for Bollywood and the Bhatts in particular. After 'Woh Lamhe' for Zeher, there was no looking back and also I might add, every single song he gave voice to was a hit to say the least. 'Tere Bin' topped charts in 2006, 'Pehli Nazar Main' did the same in 2008 and 'Tera Honay Laga Hoon' and 'Tu Jaane Na' were the biggest hits of last year among others. So much so that Atif got nominated for his music in literally every award function last year. Clearly, Atif has made it big in Bollywood with the magic of his voice.
