No training needed to become a singer: Atif Aslam
While most musicians say that training is a prerequisite of a good singer, Pakistani singer Atif Aslam who has crooned popular Bollywood songs like "Woh lamhe" ("Zehar"), "Aadat" ("Kalyug") and "Pehli nazar mein" ("Race") feels that he is a born singer.
"A singer should not be criticised just because he is not trained as, according to me, you do not need training for singing," said Atif on a special show which was broadcast Thursday on Radio One 94.3 FM in Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Chennai, Delhi, Mumbai and Pune.
The singer, who is an ardent fan of Kishore Kumar, revealed that it was the legendary singer's songs that inspired him to become a singer.
