Lucky Ali, who turned 64 on Monday, September 19, has had an extraordinary career in the music industry. Unlike most other singers and composers, he has had a rather peripheral relationship with film scores. In a country where film scores dominate the scene and pop is largely second fiddle, Lucky shocked everyone when he quit his industry years ago at the height of his fame. In an old interview he also revealed the reason behind it.Read also: (Lucky Ali reveals why he wanted to leave Mumbai after the death of his father Mehmood)
Born to legendary actor and filmmaker Mehmood, Lucky Ali debuted on the Indian music scene quite late. He was already 37 when his debut album Sunoh was released in 1996. He finally made his breakthrough in Bollywood with his two hits in the 2000 film Kaho Na…Pyaar Hai. He even went on to act in movies like Kaante and Sur. In his subsequent decade, Lucky, who has sung memorable songs in several films, distanced himself from Bollywood after Tamasha (2015).
In a 2017 interview with the Polywood Box Office, the singer and actor was asked why he decided to quit Bollywood and replied: (This place has a lot of rudeness). Bollywood has changed. The movies being made these days lack inspiration and I don’t think there is anything to be learned from such movies. ”
The singer added that he doesn’t like the kind of movies that are being made in the industry these days and that’s why he left. People become violent when they are inspired by what they are in. I think through the film, patience is reduced and greed is encouraged,” he said.
Earlier this year, Lucky Ali returned to mainstream music with the track Intezaar, which he co-produced with composer Mikey McCreary. He also recently starred in a movie called Tea Sri His Murder at Manzil 302, which was released last year. However, the film was shot in 2008-2009 and has been in development hell ever since. These days Lucky lives in Goa and is still working on his music.
