Zee TV seems to be changing the face of music reality shows with its latest non-fiction property, the Indian Pro Music League (IPML). While the world of sports has seen several league competitions, this unique music league has six teams representing different regions of India, battling it out against each other in a musical championship.
While the competition will heat up with both the teams putting their best foot forward, Punjab Lion’s captain Mika Singh will lighten up the mood as he shares a funny memory with AR Rahman. After an enthralling performance to ‘Heer Toh Badi Sad Hai’, he revealed a funny anecdote from an award function that actually helped him get this song.
As Mika Singh revealed, “My biggest weak point is my language, I am not someone who can speak fluent English but at an award function I tried to speak in English, and I messed up. What I wanted to say was ‘I would love to work with Rahman Sir,’ but I ended up saying ‘Rahman Sir would love to work with me.’ It was an awkward and embarrassing moment for me, but I guess Rahman Sir understood me, and hence, he gave me the song ‘Heer Toh Badi Sad Hai’ and together we created a chart-breaking version of an emotional song.”
The Punjabi superstar joked how his English has always been weak, but at the award function, he tried to speak in English and ended up making a major blunder in front of AR Rahman. But fortunately, he still managed to bag a song from him.
