This popster-turned-playback-singer is the son of the comedian Mehmood Ali and a gifted singer who initially thought he would be an actor. He had a troubled youth that included rumored drug addiction and an itinerant lifestyle that led him from India to Kentucky and back again. His father even made a film about the fictional results of his addiction. But despite the turmoil Lucky Ali found time to record two well-received pop albums, which led him to film work. The song "Na Tum Jaano Na" from Kaho Na Pyar Hai won Ali every award available in 2000, and has secured Ali's place as both a singer and (if the rumors are true) also a composer in the industry.
