Popular singer Pulok's passion for singing dates back to his childhood. He first burst on the music scene in the talent hunt show Closeup 1, in 2006. Since then he has walked a steady path in his musical career; from playback singing, TV appearances, stage shows, and music direction.
Playback singing seems to be the artiste's forte. With over 200 film credits to his name, he has lent his voice to 30 songs this year alone. “I love playback singing for many reasons. Songs play an important role in films; sometimes they are the reason why people flock to theatres to watch a film, and sometimes a successful film helps a song become popular,” said the singer.
Among his hit ventures, the song “Bidhata Janey” from the film “Poramon” is a repeat request by fans during stage shows. Popular actor Shakib Khan lip-synced to the song “Kintu Ontore Prem Dila” in the film “Priya Amar Jaan.” Another massively popular song is “Hamelin'er BaaNshiwala” from the film “Purnodoirgho Prem Kahini”.
The artiste revealed to The Daily Star that playback singing is indeed, one of his focal points at the moment. “I've been in more demand since I've been involved in these popular hits,” he explained.
Most recently, the singer recorded a song for the Minhaz Ovi helmed “Meghkanya”, starring Ferdous. However, the singer is said to have emerged from the recording studios this time, and is acting in the musical segment himself.
Despite being flooded with various singing ventures, , the artiste has only released one solo album titled “Jajabor Pulok” so far, in 2011. And now he is working on his second album, slated to release on Valentine's Day.
Pulok has taken part in stage shows in Australia, Canada, Oman, USA, Japan and Germany.
