Waseem, widely known as Waseem Lata in Hyderabad, has been blessed with the talent of singing in a female’s voice and that too in the voice of legendry playback singer Lata Mangeshkar.
People have started calling him Waseem Lata for his voice’s striking similarity with the Bollywood singer.
According to Waseem, listening to Lata Ji gives him solace. Although he is a painter by profession, but he passionately loves to sing, he said in an exclusive interview with Dialogue Pakistan.
Numerous people doubted his voice saying that he lip synced the songs, therefore, to prove his voice, he had to shut the music down and sing sans any sound.
Moreover, Waseem revealed that he received discouragement for his passion due to which he disappeared for eight years, on which his friend Nadeem Raju supported and motivated him to resume his passion. He said it had been 20 years to him since he was in the field of music industry.
“The day when Lata Mangeshkar will listen my voice, I would consider myself successful,” said Waseem.
