Which is your favourite track from any of the Vishesh Films banner you have seen or heard in the past?
I liked 'Kya Mujhe Pyaar Hai' from Woh Lamhe and there was a song which was sung by James from the film Gangster called 'Hamari Adhoori Kahani'. In fact, this song is still on my play list as one of my favorites.

You are coming to the U.K to promote Awarapan which will mark your first public performance out here. Are you excited?
This will be my first time in front of the U.K audience and I'm really looking forward to meet my fans. But more importantly, it will also be my first promotional activity for a film overseas. I am excited, nervous and waiting for the people's response towards the films album.

What prayer did you ask for Allah for Awarapan, your debut film as a singer and composer?
Well, my passport is still with the British Embassy. So I ask Allah to return my passport as soon as possible so I can fly to U.K next week to promote Awarapan.

Are you in favour of re-mixes which is the current trend in all the music C.D's?
I've not been a great fan of re-mixes but what D.J Suketu has started giving to the Indian Film Industry is commendable, whether it's a track from Ek Chalis Ki Local, Woh Lamhe or Awarapan. His work speaks for itself.

Have you released your album Roxen outside Pakistan?
Yes, we have just released the album three months back in the U.S. Probably by the end of July this year, we will be out with Roxen in U.K and India.

Now that you've made your debut in Bollywood, which actor or actress are you a fan of?
ShahRukh Khan all the way, any day. He is loved by all in Pakistan. As far as my favourite actress is concerned, I like Pooja Bhatt because she has been my crush since my childhood. Though Mahesh Bhatt doesn't know the fact that I had a crush on her, so I have to be very careful. I did request him that I wanted to meet Pooja but it didn't happen. Next time I visit India, I'll make sure that my trip is worthwhile.

What expectations have you got from Awarapan?
Everybody, from Mohit Suri, Mahesh&Mukesh Bhatt to Emraan Hashmi and me, we all have worked very hard and all of us believe in God. I hope the film does well for all of us.
