This film (Laawaris) was made by director Prakash Mehra. He also made Zanjeer. He came up to me one day and said, hey, Amit, give me this song. I asked him what he meant by that. He then explained that he wanted to use the song in his film, and I said sure, why not! He then said, you will have to sing it. I told him, I can’t. Phate huye baans jaise, I am a very bad singer.” ALSO READ: KBC 15: Here's The Rs 7 Crore Question Contestant Jaskaran Singh Couldn't Answer On Amitabh Bachchan's Quiz Show-DEETS INSIDE
