'Javed Ali' is an Indian playback singer. He has been singing in Hindi movies from 2000 but shot to fame in 2007 when he sang the song Ek Din Teri Raahon Mein from the movie Naqaab and thereafter another big hit like Jashn-E-Bahaara from the movie Jodhaa Akbar(2008). He has also sang the song Guzarish, (Ghajini) and Arziyan for Delhi-6 with Kailash Kher.


Early life

Born and brought up in Delhi, Ali started singing at a very early age. He started singing with his father — a popular qawwali singer, Ustad Hamid Hussain. Javed is a student of the famous Ghazal singer Ghulam Ali who not only guided him but also gave him a chance to sing. Born as Javed Hussain, he changed his name to Javed Ali in honor of his Guru. Music composer Anandji Kalyanji once heard him at a stage show, and impressed with his voice asked him to try playback singing instead. From jingles and title track for TV soaps, he gradually moved to films.

Playback Singing

Javed debuted by singing a track from the movie Beti No.1, but it didn't help his career much. After that, he sang for several movies including Chameli, Dil Jo Bhi Kahey, Golmaal - Fun Unlimited, Kyun...! Ho Gaya Na, Neal 'n' Nikki and Zindaggi Rocks among others. He was noted for his renedering of the Punjabi-based track Nagaada Nagaada in the 2007 movie Jab We Met alongside Sonu Nigam. It's been a long and hard struggle for this 29 year old talented singer. However he has shot to real fame in 2008 with the song Jashn-E-Bahaara in the magnum opus Jodhaa Akbar, which is directed by Ashutosh Gowariker and music composed by A R Rahman and also a popular song Ek Din Teri Rahon Me composed by Pritam for the movie Naqaab. "Tu Muskura" which he has sung along with Alka Yagnik is from the movie Yuvvraaj, again from A R Rahman. Recently, Javed Ali struck a chord with another single composed by A R Rahman called "Guzarish" that includes guest vocals of Sonu Nigam from Aamir Khan's latest movie Ghajini. This song is the most popular song of Ghajini. He also sang "Arziyaan" from the film Delhi-6, which was critically appreciated. His latest Tamil songs include "Chinnanjirusuga Manasukkul" alongside Bella Shende for the Tamil movie 'Kungumapoovum Konjumpuraavum' composed by Yuvan Shankar Raja and "Siragugal" from the Tamil movie Sarvam which is again composed by Yuvan Shankar Raja.

His latest Hindi songs from movie Tum Mile composed by Pritam are hitting the popularity charts, specially the song "Tu Hi Haqeeqat" renders true magic of his enormous vocal talent.Javed also sang one song for film de dana dan called gale lag ja

He is now part of A.R.Rahman's Jai Ho World tour.
