When Bollywood actors sing in different languages…

By Bandook - June 21, 2019

It comes as no surprise anymore to see an Alia Bhatt or a Shraddha Kapoor sing as well as they act. In fact, if anything, actors are now singing some of their own songs as well as for others. Anyhoo, here’s a list of actors who have sung in languages other than Hindi (because, hey that’s what we speak in Bollywood, yo!)…

FARHAN AKHTAR

An actor who took the title of his film Rock On!! literally, Farhan has dabbled in singing, even fronting a band at music festivals. But are you aware that apart from his non-film songs, Farhan went further out (down south, to be precise) with his voice, singing for a Telugu film Bharat Ane Nenu starring superstar Mahesh Babu. The solo song Farhan sung? It’s called I Don’t Know.
