Armaan Malik is a dream come true for Bollywood — he proves why singers deserve to be called stars. Be it a remix or an original track, Armaan has lent vocals to beautiful songs like “Tumhe Apna Banane Ka,” “Dil Ke Paas,” and “Aaja Na Ferrari Mein,” owning the stage with all of them. His songs transcend all barriers.
Another fun fact: Malik voiced the character of Salim for the BBC Radio 1 version in the Academy Award-winning film Slumdog Millionaire. The young singer has charmed the industry, and will soon be a part of the most expensive Indian film 2.0, starring Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar. Malik will be singing the Hindi versions of the songs in the upcoming sci-fi film, which are originally composed by the legendary music composer A.R. Rahman.
Here is a list of Armaan Malik’s best tunes that are sure to put a smile on your face:
“Auliya” from Ungli
“Auliya” by Armaan Malik is a request to the guide, the protector, to show the right path. The beautiful track is backed by honeyed piano beats. Amid a fusion of Indian and Western classical rhythms, the lyrics of the song talk about seeing through the haze and seeing God’s path. Malik recorded the song in a casual jamming session and he later revealed that it was a birthday gift from music composer Salim of the musical duo Salim-Sulaiman, who decided to let the 23-year-old singer’s voice remain in the final version.
“Naina” from Khoobsurat
This beautiful number is a happy, soft ballad by Sona Mohapatra and Armaan Malik. The song was completed in just 48 hours. Brothers Amaal Mallik and Armaan were jamming, and the singer was casually strumming his guitar, lending his voice for the test runs. Shashanka Ghosh and Rhea Kapoor later found that his voice was perfect for the setting, and so the song was recorded and mastered at lightning speed.
The soulful track “Main Rahoon Ya Na Rahoon” by Armaan has mellow guitar chords and soulful lyrics. Composed by his brother Amaal, the single was shot in Goa featuring Emraan Hashmi and Esha Gupta. The song became massively popular upon its release in 2015 and has since been honored with the 2016 Mirchi Music Awards and Global Indian Music Academy Awards.
“Tere Mere” from Chef
“Tere Mere” is yet another dulcet lyrical achievement by the Malik brothers. Amaal Mallik composed the song, and Armaan voiced this lover’s hope to finally meet his partner again someday. Rashmi Virag’s lyrics are like a narration of a heartbreaking story where two lovers are forced to part ways.
“Sab Tera Unplugged” from “MTV Unplugged” Season 7
Originally from the film Baaghi, “Sab Tera Unplugged” was sung by Armaan again at “MTV Unplugged” Season 7. Another masterpiece by the Malik brothers, this song is a deep, zealous confession of love. Sajeev Chaturvedi’s lyrics ruled the top hits list for a long time, and once you listen to this song, you’ll know why.
“Buddhu Sa Mann” from Kapoor & Sons (Since 1921)
Amaal and Armaan Malik came together once again to sing this happy-go-lucky track for Kapoor & Sons (Since 1921). Featuring a birthday celebration of a young-at-heart grandpa, played by Rishi Kapoor, “Buddhu Sa Mann” is a fun-filled song stating that age is just a number. The track is fun-filled and lighthearted, perfect for a chill session with your pals.
“Kuch To Hai” from Do Lafzon Ki Kahani
One of Armaan Malik’s lesser-known songs, “Kuch To Hai” didn’t receive much mainstream attention. The beautiful melody was later made into a love mashup by the singer himself, titled “Kaun Tujhe & Kuch To Hai Mashup” from T-Series Acoustics. The remix of the two songs, however, quickly became popular. Armaan had tried something similar with “Main Agar Kahoon-Bol Do Na Zara” from the T-Series Mixtape album.
