Memories of legendary singer Mohammad Rafi will soon revive back. Here is the opportunity to hear some of Rafi’s unreleased songs. An unreleased film of the late 70’s titled ‘Sorry Madam’ directed by Dilip Bose has been revived by Narayani Creative Solutions. The film has songs sung by Rafi, which were composed by Chitragupt. The film was never released and Narayani Creative Solutions have bought the music rights now and are also planning to make a film by the same title. Dilip Bose’s sons Diwakar and Dipankar will direct the film and will star newcomers.
Also singer Sonu Nigam is set to record 18 famous Mohammad Rafi songs showing his unconditional love for his idol Mohammad Rafi. Sonu in his own way will be paying a tribute Rafi and has signed up with City of Brimingham Symphony Orchestra to record the songs. The songs have been selected by CBSO and will be in the symphony Orchestra style. Sonu adds that it is his tribute to his favorite singer. Sonu is also planning his forthcoming album slated to release in June which will be a semi-classical one and will have eight songs composed by Deepak Pandit.
