Ranbir Kapoor plays a singer in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil

No multiple voices, no re-recordings, no double and triple versions of the same tune... Only Arijit Singh would sing for Ranbir Kapoor in Karan Johar's Ae Dil Hai Mushkil.

This was what producer-director Karan Johar and his music composer Pritam Chakraborty decided when they embarked on the musical journey that was Ae Dil Hai Mushkil (ADHM) .

It can now be revealed that Ranbir Kapoor plays a singer in ADHM. And it was decided only Arijit Singh will sing all the songs for Ranbir. According to sources, Ranbir Kapoor felt Arijit Singh suited him vocally.

Arijit Singh admits it is an added responsibility for the playback singer to give voice to an actor when he plays a singer. "I've done it earlier in Aashiqui 2, where Aditya Roy Kapur played a singer. Now with Ranbir Kapoor, I am again giving voice to the character of a professional singer, and it's different, more challenging than the usual playback singing. Ranbir Kapoor had already shot the title song with a scratch recording (song recorded in a makeshift voice). I sat and observed Ranbir Kapoor emoting to the words .Then recorded my songs."

Arijit Singh is all praise for Ranbir Kapoor. "It is very rare for an actor today to be able to hold the camera on his face for almost a minute emoting to the lyrics. Ranbir Kapoor has done it in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. Not for a second does one feel he is faking the emotions. When I watched Ranbir Kapoor emoting to the words and tune, I felt inspired and challenged to give better than my best. I've seen how Ranbir Kapoor responded to the music that he had to sing in Rockstar when he played a singer. It's very inspiring for any playback singer."

The ADHM experience has made Arijit Singh realize how important it is to have an actor understand what he is singing. "Ranbir Kapoor isn't just using my voice in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. He is experiencing and savouring the words, letting them flow into his soul. It's such a pleasure to sing for him because as a professional playback singer, I know Ranbir Kapoor's screen presence will carry my song very far."

Arijit Singh says he is still recording songs for ADHM. "We haven't decided on how many songs I will sing for Ranbir Kapoor. But I can tell you this. Whatever Dada (composer Pritam Chakraborty) and Karan Johar decide, it will all add up to a grand musical experience. And for those who are raving about my first song for Ranbir in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, here's news. My second song for Ranbir Kapoor is even better. I rate it as one of the best songs I've sung so far."

Rakhi Sawant accuses CBFC of bribery

It was only a month ago when Rakhi Sawant's film Ek Kahani Julie Ki trailer was unveiled. The film was sent was certification and got 'A' certificate. This angered Rakhi Sawant and she slammed the board for it.

During the press tour, Rakhi Sawant recently accused Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) chairman Pahlaj Nihalani of taking bribes for film certification. She said that the censor board should be shut down as they took money from big banners and teased the poor producers. She accused board members of openly asking for a bribe and taking unnecessary advantage of their position. She called them incompetent and uneducated.

Rakhi Sawant threatened that she will get inside Pahlaj Nihalani's house and pull him down from his chairman's chair. She said that if he didn't know how to work then he should resign and she will be happy to take his place. She thinks she could do the job better and won't be biased and categorize producers according to their banners.

Apparently, Rakhi Sawant's upcoming film was given 'U/A' certificate which later was changed to 'A'. Continuing her rant, she said that because they didn't give CBFC any money and that was the reason the certificate was changed. She also mentioned that maybe they can't digest the fact that an item girl had managed to become an actress.

Rakhi Sawant tried to justify her point by slamming Sunny Leone once again. Rakhi said that she is India's daughter, a Bollywood star, an actress and an item girl at least, not a porn star. She talked about how Sunny's Ek Paheli Leela has issued a U/A certificate that had all kinds of filth, nudity, and obscene content.

Rakhi Sawant further informed that she has approached the Bombay High Court to take strict action. She said that she will fight against CBFC and teach the board a lesson. She said that the court should take the screening responsibility in their hands and remove the censor board from the country.

Directed by Aziz Zee, Ek Kahani Julie Ki also features new comers Amit Mehra, Jimmy Sharma and Saniya Pannu.
