Pakistan songster Atif Aslam has achieved another feat in his music career as he took on singing in Bengali for an upcoming Tollywood film called Cockpit.

The love song is titled Mithe Alo, the video for which was released on Wednesday, and has attracted around 237,051 views already.

Atif explained his experience of singing in a foreign language, saying it is a challenging task as ‘you have to be careful about the pronunciations and the dialect’.

‘But I love challenges,’ the singer added.

‘I had to understand the subject of the song,’ Atif said, elaborating that to ensure accuracy, he spoke to a couple of friends whose native language was Bengali.

‘The music director also helped me with the dialect,’ he added.
