His first few songs to hit the airwaves were tributes to industry legends like Mehdi HassanĀ Sahab,Ā Iqbal Bano and Reshma

He said that he was 6 when his mother took him to meet one of the biggest singers of South Asia. She was sitting on a sofa and was being taken care of by her attendants when Baby Sethi asked herĀ ‘Aap itna ooncha kiun gaati hain?’Ā He was asked to quiet down by his extremely apologetic mother. ButĀ for Ali, it was only a matter of time that he fell in love with the songstress’ ‘heavenly rich’ voice that hasĀ a ‘singular way of conveying the grandest emotions’.

 

People were also asking him how she reacted to his question
