Full version of ‘Mauka 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 ‘Mauka Mauka’ advertisement. On his 27th birthday (17 March), Khan shared insights about his musical ‘mauka’ with the ICC World Cup, 2015.

Rohan Utpat, Khan’s 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, “Book the studio, I will be ready for even a 1000 takes”.

Talking about how life has changed after ‘Mauka Mauka’, Khan reveals “It has opened up a lot of doors. Many Bollywood singers and composers have been approaching me for new collaborations”.

Khan also added that the team received a lot of feedback from India and abroad asking for a complete version of the song. “We have already finished with recording the complete song, which will be out in probably a week’s time”.

When asked about his favorite Indian cricketer he says, “I 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 year’s team.”

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 ‘Desi Beat’ from the film ‘Bodyguard’ and ‘Tauba Main Vyaah Karke Pachtaya’ from the film ‘Shaadi Ke Side Effects’.

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