He is the son of the legendary Mehmood, grew up in Bollywood, sung several chart busters like Ek pal ka jeena and even acted in movies like Kaante and Sur, but Lucky Ali says the world of Hindi cinema means nothing to him.
"There is nothing to talk about Bollywood. It means nothing important to me and I don't even consider it an industry. I feel anyone can go there and work," said Lucky Ali.
"At this moment, I am not looking at that (Bollywood) at all. Maybe when I want to direct a film, then I will think about it," added the singer-actor who has returned to the non-film segment with his new album Xsuie.
He has not indulged in physical distribution of the music as he released it online. When asked for the reason, Lucky Ali said times are changing rapidly and one should not lag behind.
"Things are changing and trends are altering. People are more digitally literate now. As it is when you put out your music digitally, the quality of sound is high. But when you put it on a CD, the sound starts deteriorating. I didn't want that to happen.
"It is time for us to realize that the world is on a different platform altogether and we need to change too," he said.
"Another reason was that, releasing songs online reduces the carbon footprint. Getting so many CDs out is not good for the environment. Since I attach myself with the initiative (to save the planet), I take care of it," he added.
Lucky Ali is known for his simple ballad-style singing and melodious voice. He made his pop debut with the album Sunoh that made him a singing star. Later he came out with reasonably successful albums Sifar, Aks and Kabhi Aisa Lagta Hai.
