This just in: Atif Aslam will sing for Onir’s next film after all

Atif Aslam fans, take heart.

The singer has agreed to sing for My Brother Nikhil director Onir’s upcoming film, Shab.

The director confirmed the same in an interview with IANS, “I’ve been bombarded with my fans asking that I include Atif in ‘Shab’ music. Everyone was asking me to recreate the magic of ‘Bas Ek Pal’, so I think I have to give them ‘Aur Ek Pal’. He is going to be part of the film.”

Earlier, when Onir announced Shab’s music, fans were disappointed by Atif’s absence and pleaded the director to give them another hit like ‘Tere Bin’ from Bas Ek Pal. Onir promised his fans that he’d try his best.

It turns out that his efforts did not go in vain. Atif Aslam has joined Shab’s roster of singers, which include Mohammed Irfan, KK and Mithoon.

Shab, starring Raveena Tandon, is the story of a coffee shop girl Raina (Arpita Chatterjee) and her lover, an aspiring model. Sonal (Raveena) is a fashion patron who becomes his mentor. The film centers around their intense relationship.
