Suprise Birthday - Amanat Ali
India might not be his country but Indians have been showering him with a lot of love. Amanat Ali, the Pakistani contender for the Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Challenge 2007 title, has gathered quite a huge fan following here.
His popularity was evident during a recent public appearance at Jai Hind College last Wednesday. It happened to be Ali's birthday and the organisers threw a surprise party in the college itself.
The other contestants belted out all their favourite songs, but the crowd requested Ali to sing some slow numbers like Tujhse naaraj nahi jindagi. "One of the girls almost planted a kiss on my cheek," Ali blushes.
The mega finals will be held tonight at the Andheri Sports complex. A number of big names will be there - Akshay Kumar being the most prominent.
