After hosting Bollywood A-listers, from Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan to Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh, Kapil Sharma recently had an elusive guest on an upcoming episode of his TV show. When AR Rahman turned up on The Kapil Sharma Show, the maestro belted out some of his hits on popular demand, and having heard about the comedian actor’s singing prowess, asked him to croon something.
Initially reluctant, it took a little bit of egging on to have Kapil burst into a Punjabi folk song, Heer. The Mozart of Madras was impressed and promised to work with Kapil on an assignment soon, a source from the sets informed Mirror. After lending his voice to a song for his big screen debut, Kis Kisko Pyar Karun, Kapil has been keeping his playback track up-to-date too. In February this year, he recorded a soulful number, Akhiyan De Taare for the Punjabi film, Love Punjab.
After the unexpected offer from Rahman, an elated Kapil said, I love singing and am truly humbled that a maestro like Rahman appreciated my vocal skills. It was very sweet of him to offer me a song. After garnering immense praise and laughter from the audience, The Kapil Sharma Show has achieved another milestone. Music maestro and legend AR Rahman will soon be seen making an appearance on the much loved show.
Rahman has already shot for the said episode with Kapil and his team. The creative director of the show, Preeti Simoes took to Twitter to share her joy on being able to make Rahman a part of the show.
