New Delhi, Aug. 1 -- Ustaad Amjad Ali Khan has a word of advice for actor Salman Khan, who has recently crooned the track titled Hangover in his latest film. "I'd like to point out that professional training is a must for Salman, who should heed this before any more singing," says the 68-yearold sarod maestro.
Asked further about the new trend of Bollywood actors taking to the microphone for playback singing, he says, "It is not ta a new phenomenon. Our film lm industry has witnessed this his since times immemorial. Artists such as Begum Akhtar, Noor Jehan and Suraiya - all experimented ed within this territory and found fame and success."
Among the new crop of f stars he has heard singing, he finds both Alia Bhatt (who sang Sooha Saha in the film Highway) and Salman (never mind the training), "promising".
How about his own plans of lending music to film songs? "I have been offered opportunities by many composers, but none of them have got me interested so far. It was only in the 90s that me and my sons were part of a documentary by Gulzar, which was based on our musical journey.
