Well, that’s what the directors of Barfi! and Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani seem to think – they have roped in the singer as Ranbir’s playback in the film
So while it’s confirmed that the Rockstar singer will lend his voice to Ranbir’s background score in Barfi!, the buzz is that the makers of YJHD might opt for Chauhan to croon for their film as well. There was a time when singer SP Balasubramaniam was considered as the most apt awaaz for Salman Khan, but soon enough the trend of allocating a singer that matches the actor’s voice best started fading away. And now that we see Chauhan happily humming for the Kapoor kid in his films, the trend seems to be making a tentative comeback of sorts.
Mohit won a lot of praise for the way he sang all the soulful compositions in Rockstar. And we must say that Ranbir turned out to be quite a lucky mascot for the singer. But we hope Chauhan doesn’t get heavily stereotyped, as Bollywood tends to do that. We are sure the singer enjoys being versatile, and imagine – if he’s only used as Ranbir’s voice, how boring that’s going to get! Well, all we can hope is that our speculations turn out to be premature!
