Unlike a decade back, becoming a singer nowadays doesn’t look like a Herculean task. Have a look at the so-called internet sensations, Dhinchak Pooja and Om Prakash Mishra. They took the nation by storm and with their literally stormy songs (which caused nothing but havoc and bleeding ears) like Selfie Maine Le Li and Bol Na Aunty Aau Kya. Hence proved, the requirements to be a singer includes, a recording studio, a music director (to autotune) and a person who is not verbally challenged!
To cut the long story short, it just requires ‘money’. To hell with the melodious voice and rhythm then.
Accordingly, a popular Pakistani comedian, Ghulam Asghar shared his honest take on singing nowadays. The video has resurfaced on social media and is now going viral after Sonu Nigam spotted and shared it on his Facebook page.
Men bhe singer bangaya thora kharch ker k . . 🙂

The comedian’s hilariously honest take on what it takes to be a singer today has left netizens in splits.
The video shows Asghar at a recording studio to record some song. The music director tells him that he has been singing really ‘besura’. In reply to which the comedian takes a dig at him. He says that he must correct his voice through auto-tune as he has paid him thousands of bucks. His puns on how only money is required to be a famous singer in today’s time throughout the video will leave you ROFLing.
Remember Salman Khan’s enormously auto-tuned ‘Main Hu Hero Tera’? Paisa bolta tha ab gata bhi hai! Okay, Bye!
