Karan Johar, who launched the Sufi album 'Rang - Colors of Sufism', has described renowned sarod maestro Ustad Amjad Ali Khan's son Amaan Ali Khan and Ayaan Ali Khan as youth icons in the musical industry. The Bollywood filmmaker hopes that they would take the Sufi music to next level.
Talking to PTI, Karan Johar said, "I liked the album the way they have played the sarod, composed the music and presented the song. They are youth icons in this musical industry. Every year, there is more and more demand for Sufi music, but through Amaan and Ayaan, if the music reaches the people the impact is much larger and greater.”
Meanwhile, Amaan Ali Khan said that along with his brother Ayaan, he hopes to contribute something great to the industry. Amaan said, "Me and my brother have always tried combing different Indian art forms that can come together to create something extraordinary. We are happy the way the album has come out. Hope everyone likes it."
However, the album Rang - Colors of Sufism is a confluence of six tracks like: 'Mann Kunto Maula', 'Aaj Rang Hai', 'Bahaut Din Beete', 'Main Nizaam', 'Zihale Miskin' and 'Kaahe Ko Byaahe Bides'. "It is a very special album for us. I hope everyone enjoys our most recent work," Ayaan said. And talking about Sufism, one of my favourite songs is 'Ishq sufiyana' from Emraan's film," Johar said.
