desivoltiare suggested this, but I put off doing the post because, well, this is impossible! To make a true judgement, you would need to listen to/watch every single SRK song, then categorize them based on singer, than decide which singer over all across all his songs is the best. I’m not doing that, and you shouldn’t have to either. Limited to these songs in particular, which is your favorite playback singer among them? The best match for SRK?
1. “Kal Ho Na Ho” Sonu Nigam
2. “Yeh Dil Deewana” Sonu Nigam
3. “Main Hoon Na” Sonu Nigam
4. “Mahi Ve” Sonu Nigam
5. “Kyon Hawa” Sonu Nigam
6. “Gerua” Arijit Singh
7. “Zaalima” Arijit Singh
8. “Janam Janam” Arijit Singh
9. “Hawayein” Arijit Singh
10. “Manwa Laage” Arijit Singh
11. “Koi Ladki Hai” Udit Narayan
12. “Main Yahan Hoon” Udit Narayan
13. “Jaadu Tere Nazar” Udit Narayan
14. “Ruk Ja O Dil Deewane” Udit Narayan
15. “Ae Ajnabi” Udit Narayan
Dang this is HARD!!!!
Okay, here is my answer:
Personally, I like Arijit’s voice best. But I don’t think it is as perfect a fit with Shahrukh onscreen somehow.
Udit has the best songs, just as songs, “Ae Ajnabi” and “Jaadu Teri Nazar” and so on.
But purely in terms of a melding of actor and voice, I think Sonu is where it is at. When he sings it really makes me believe Shahrukh is singing.
What about you?
