Ajay Devgan told the story
When Ajay Devgn appeared in the singing reality show ‘Indian Idol’ a few years ago, he narrated the story of that ego clash between Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan and Anand Bakshi. Ajay told that when Nusrat Fateh Ali came to India, he stayed in a hotel. Since he was very heavy, he could not move much. If he had to go somewhere, seven-eight people together used to pick him up.
Ego clash between Anand Bakshi and Nusrat Ali
Ajay Devgan had told that since Nusrat Fateh Ali could not walk. He had become very overweight. So he sent a message to Anand Bakshi that he should come to meet him, there he would write songs. Anand Bakshi felt that Nusrat Fateh Ali has come from Pakistan, so he has a lot of ego. And he did not go to meet them. Rather, he would have written songs and sent them to Nusrat Saheb, but he would have rejected them. And when Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan would send the tune of the song, Anand Bakshi would have rejected it.
Nusrat Ali reached Anand Bakshi’s house
This process continued for 15-20 days. For so many days Anand Bakshi and Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan did not go to meet each other. Both of them were engaged in the affair of their ego like this. But due to this the album of Ajay Devgan’s ‘Kachche Dhaage’ got delayed. Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan could not tolerate this. Then one day he said that he should be picked up and taken to Anand Bakshi.
Anand Bakshi was crying
When Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan went, Anand Bakshi wept upon seeing him. Ajay Devgan had told that Anand Bakshi folded his hands in front of Nusrat Fatehi Ali Khan, and said that he was thinking something else. He had a very rubbish ego. Forgive them Bakshi then told Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan to leave. Now I will stay there with you and make songs. This is how the whole album of ‘Kachche Dhaage’ was made. Even later, Anand Bakshi did not leave Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan’s side.
Nusrat Fateh Ali died in 1997
Kachche Dhaage was Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan’s last Hindi film. He died on 16 August 1997. It is said that half the songs of the film were recorded after the death of Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan.
