Begum Jaan’s music album will have big names like Sonu Nigam, Rahat Fateh Ali Khan and Shreya Ghoshal. Even Anu Malik’s daughter Anmoll Malik will get a chance to croon. He recently spoke about working with Asha Bhosle and said that it has been his biggest honour to have Asha Bhosle sing for him. He continued saying that she was sweet enough to say that Anu Malik had given her a new lease of life. It was an emotional moment.
Anu Malik continued that he got the music composition work not because of Begum Jaan producers Mahesh and Mukesh Bhatt. It was because of director Srijit Mukerji who had asked them about the music composer of ‘Aisa Lagta Hai’ from Refugee. When Srijit got to know about Anu’s work, he just wanted him to come on board. Anu said that he is really thankful to Srijit.
