Full version of æMauka Muaka' to release soon reveals voice behind popular jingle

MUMBAI: Much has been talked about the 'Mauka Mauka' advertisement, with the campaign receiving stupendous response all over from not just cricket fans. However, while the actor in the advertisement has become popular overnight, very few people know the voice behind the catchy jingle.

Alamgir Khan is the latest Punjabi sufi sensation, who rendered his voice for the æMauka MaukaÆ advertisement. On his 27th birthday (17 March), Khan shared insights about his musical æmaukaÆ with the ICC World Cup, 2015.

Rohan Utpat, KhanÆs close friend and one of the music directors for the ad campaign, approached him to lend his voice. Initially, Khan refused to do the campaign considering that is was song for the Pakistani team. However, soon after the video director convinced him that the jingle was for the Indian fans, Khan told him, ôBook the studio, I will be ready for even a 1000 takesö.

Talking about how life has changed after æMauka MaukaÆ, Khan reveals ôIt has opened up a lot of doors. Many Bollywood singers and composers have been approaching me for new collaborationsö.

Khan also added that the team received a lot of feedback from India and abroad asking for a complete version of the song. ôWe have already finished with recording the complete song, which will be out in probably a weekÆs timeö.

When asked about his favorite Indian cricketer he says, ôI am a hard core fan of Yuvraj Singh and would someday love to lend my voice for him. I was disappointed on hearing Yuvi was not part of this yearÆs team.ö

Khan started singing at the age of 14, and says he owes his break in Bollywood to singer/ composer- Himmesh Reshammiya and actor- Salman Khan. He previously sang chart busters like æDesi BeatÆ from the film æBodyguardÆ and æTauba Main Vyaah Karke PachtayaÆ from the film æShaadi Ke Side EffectsÆ.

He has about 18 new songs in his kitty, all of which will be released this year through Bollywood films.
