Everything is set for a heart-throbbing musical evening tomorrow when rising Bollywood music star Armaan Malik will perform for his Doha fans at Ali Bin Hamad Al Attiyah Arena from 7:30pm onwards.
“It is going to be a musical night full of fun in Doha. I am very excited to be here as this is going to be my first performance in Qatar. I am very happy to be in Doha. Lots of my fans have been asking me to come to Doha,” said Armaan Malik during a press conference and meet-up held at Ali Bin Hamad Al Attiyah Arena on Monday evening.
He said: “I am very glad to collaborate with Doha Waves as they are going to have their 100th show in Doha. They have done shows of very good artistes in the past. The most special thing about my show is that it coincides with Eid. It is very auspicious time for all of us.”
Armaan, who is just 23, promised his fans that it is going to be a fun night. “I am just hoping that everyone in Doha, who loves music and Bollywood, comes together and has a fun night with me. I guarantee you that it is going to be an amazing night.”
The seemingly enthusiastic Armaan showed great energy in responding to different questions and comments from the media persons.
When asked about the name of an actor for who he loves the singing most, Armaan said: “I have sung for numerous actors. I did my singing debut for sir Salman [Khan] in the movie Jai Ho. [Smiling] I was bit scared at that time because I was only 18 years old. I asked Salman sir if my voice will match his character and he said that he would reduce some of his wait to look younger. It was great for me to sing for such an amazing actor in the beginning of my career.
“My favourite in the young generation is Varun Dhawan. I have sung a song Theher Ja for him in the movie called October. I am hoping to sing more songs for him. I feel my voice matches with that of Tiger Shroff a lot. I did the song Sub Tera for the film Baaghi. Even today, Tiger comes to me and tells me that he feels as if he is singing instead of me.”
In response to a question about singing in languages other than Hindi, he said: “I am proud to be not only a Bollywood singer but also an Indian singer. I also sing in South Indian movies. I sing in Bengali movies. I sing in Gujrati, Marathi, and almost all Indian languages.”
Armaan also said: “I am not interested in acting as I do not know how to act. I have to learn it before I go for it.”
Muhammed Thoyyib, Chairman Doha Waves Events, said: “Doha Waves” a leading event management company celebrating their 100th mega event in association with Tea Time and Prime Sports Centre.
“Doha Waves has organised many of international events including Bollywood concerts like Shreya Ghoshal Live Qatar and Udit Narayan Live in concert which were a tremendous success.”
