Alia Bhatt is all set to record her first single

After Priyanka Chopra, Sonakshi Sinha and Jacqueline Fernandez, Alia Bhatt is now all set to record a single by the month end. Composed by Mithoon (inset) and penned by Manoj Muntashir, the romantic track is produced by Bhushan Kumar.

 "The idea was pitched by Bhushan four months ago. After toying with a few concepts we zeroed in on a love ballad. Alia has an unconventional voice which will add to the song's charm. She is serious about her music and a confident singer," informs Mithoon. He points out that Alia, who is inspired by her father, Mahesh Bhatt's work, wanted to pay a tribute.

"So we may include a few musical elements from 'Dil Hai Ke Manta Nahin' and 'Sadak'. My father, Naresh Sharma, had arranged the music for them," the 31-year-old composer adds. Will he sing with her? "We are yet to take a call on that but I am playing the piano," says Mithoon. Alia has earlier lent her voice to 'Sooha Saha' from Imtiaz Ali's Highway and the unplugged version of 'Samjhawan' from 'Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania'. She will start her prep soon. "I like to give my singers enough time to rehearse, we will do at least three four dummy recording sessions before the final one," says Mithoon. The team is yet to start work on the video. They should shoot it sometime next month.
